The subject of this blog post is the little glass bottle. When I was a little person, this is what the cream (like for coffee) was delivered in when the milkman brought the weekly milk delivery. You were supposed to wash them and put them back out with your empty bottles. I hid one in my toy drawer and then took it to my grandmother's house for safe keeping.
I imagine my mother looked everywhere for it and I didn't confess until my grandmother moved to the apartment when I was nine.
It was for imaginary tea parties but because it is glass I didn't think my mother would let me play with it. Next spring, I will cut some lily of the valley and use it like a mini vase.
By the way, it was sealed with a little waxed cardboard circle with a pull tab stapled on. Let me know if you remember this, ok?
