I heard a joke from someone once that said that the Thermos is the smartest thing you can own. It knows to keep the hot things hot and when to keep the cold things cold.
Let me tell you that little silver thermos that looks like a beer bottle that I put ice water in is just wonderful but the looks I get in traffic when I drink from it at a stop light would melt your cubes!
Daryl was sitting in his house when came a loud knock on his door.
He went to the door and a salesman was standing there with an unfamiliar object in his hand.
“What’s that?” asked Daryl. “It’s a Thermos.”
Intrigued, Daryl asked, “What does it do?”
Shifting into the sales pitch he said, “This little jewel is amazing. It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold.”
After some discussion Daryl purchased one thinking it would really help with his lunch situation at work. The next day he arrived at the construction site carrying his new Thermos.
The other employees noticing Daryl’s new item asked, “Whatcha got there?”
Daryl proudly held up his new purchase and said, “It’s a Thermos. It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold.”
“What ya’ got in it?”
“Three cups of coffee and a popsicle!”
