Sometimes, beauty is a beast

Some of my long-time readers may remember the kick I got out of finding The Netilat Yadayim Cup That Ate Manhattan.

It was beautiful, easy to clean, and comfortable to hold.

I loved it.

But apparently, it didn't love me.  :(

It was bad enough when one of us knocked it up off the rim of the bathroom sink for the umpteenth time and it made a dent in our brand-new bathtub.

But when it fell into our brand-new bathroom sink--or rather, our newer sink, the replacement for the new sink that turned out to be a hunk of junk--and left two metal marks so dark that it took me ten minutes of hard scrubbing with baking soda and biodegradable cleanser to get them out, I decided that I wasn't willing to pay the price of such beauty.

Into the breakfront went my beautiful stainless steel netilat yadayim cup, where it now sits on display, dents and all.

And out of banishment came the old plastic version.

It's ugly, hard to clean, and uncomfortable to hold. 

But we can't afford any more damage to our new $510 sink.
