The other day I commented on Twitter about how Pinterst had convinced thousands (millions?) of people to think that drinking out of mason jars was brilliant/whimsical and should be done at weddings. Immediately, every single person in the south became defensive.
“We’ve been doing that, forever!”
Bravo, south! Like I care! The fact that I’m side-eyed for drinking rainwater out of a pail but every pinterester on the planet thinks drinks are best served in a 32oz glass jar with a canning rim is ridiculous.
Like with all trends on pinterest, finding multiple uses for the craze is a full time job.
This user who probably has an unattended child combined three pinterest trends in one: mason jars, cake with sprinkles, and rainbows. You know what I love best about eating cake out of a mason jar? The fact that I won’t have any frosting less than halfway through.
Or you can do it this way and just stack two or three cupcakes together. Are we really going to start taking serving suggestions from a part of the country that has all-you-can-eat KFCs? I’m allowed to be chunky- it works for my look, but even my toddler brain knows that eating 3 cups of frosting and that much cake in one sitting is…A FABULOUS IDEA!!!!!!! Or you’re going to screw the lid on and save the other half “for later”? When’s later. 15 minutes from right now?
I personally would rather have my hair rinse thoroughly than eat a salad but if I did, I’d like to eat it one ingredient at a time and finish the meal off with a swig of salad dressing. Mmmm! Only losers eat salad with all of the components combined. What’s that? You walk around with a full-sized plate on your person for your vertical salad? That’s so convenient!
In conclusion, mason jars are best left for the Laura Ingalls crowd who don’t know about buying jam at the grocery store. If I see you drinking out of one I’ll hit it out of your hand and make it look like an accident.
