I used to have a boss who liked to drink a diet coke in the afternoon.  She would come out of her office and proclaim, “I really need a coke, but I want one in a glass glass… with ice.”  Then she would explain how coke in a glass glass tastes much better than coke in a can and how ice makes all the difference and how without the ice one might as well lick the coke off the dirty floor boards under her feet.  Then she would sort of stare me down as if I was supposed to present her with a coke in a glass glass with ice that very second, but I never had one ready for her so she would go downstairs to the vending machine and buy a coke in a can and the afternoon would spiral slowly downwards from that point.

I learned a lot of things from that boss.

Among them was the shimmering factoid that coke does indeed taste better in a glass glass…

(with ice, of course.)
