Tonight a dish slipped out of my hands and shattered on the dining room floor. It’s happened before and it’ll happen again.
What is the most fragile thing you ever broken?
We had a wine server that had belonged to my grandmother. For years we had it on our Passover table every year. It just slipped out of my hands — of course. My mother usually got upset about things getting broken, but she seemed calm about this one.
Of course, if something is fragile, it will get broken sooner or later.
I don’t know if it was the MOST fragile thing I’d broken, but I dropped a stack of my best dishes and most of them broke. They had belonged to my mother. I was devastated.
@Bev: Bev, after I broke the dish I was informed by my husband that I was VERY FORTUNATE that it was only a William Sonoma dish (and that I owed him $24) rather than one of the dishes his mother gave to him that we only bring out for Thanksgiving.
