Wordplay Wednesday™ November 23, 2016 – Mazer

At Thanksgiving, the Size of Your Goblet Matters! 

Ah, the smell of Turkey and all the trimmings from Thanksgivings past are filling the air as we anticipate another family feast.

Get-togethers with close and extended family can be a daunting event. So many of us are spread far and wide, and when convening for a festive day, we often find we no longer have anything in common, except tired stories of yesteryear.

Conversation lags—or worse—someone mentions the “P” word (politics), or the “R” word (religion) and supper devolves into stone cold silence.

Don’t let that happen to you!  

Amaze your family and friends with a magnanimous toast … raise your glass to another fine meal (regardless of the truth in that statement), and welcome their warm and fuzzy presence, “May your glass of wine always be as full as your heart and tummies.”

While you’re thinking ... “And may the wine supply never run out as I count the seconds on the clock until this is over!” *

MAZER (māʹzɘr) n. – a large drinking bowl or goblet, originally of hard wood, probably maple, later of metal. [WW #87]

With mazer in hand, you may find that one gem in the room who shares your viewpoint and appreciates your skewed sense of humor. The day has merit after all. 

The bigger the mazer the better. Happy Thanksgiving one and all!

Word Challenge: MAZER. Eat, drink, and be merry with your mazer, as you fit it into your week of drunken … um … Holiday writings.


* The obligatory disclaimer for those who won’t care anyway, and those who misconstrue my wine comments to mean you can be drunk and disorderly—you are SO wrong. Not that you’ll take my advice, but … Always drink (and don’t drive) responsibly. :-)
