I've seen it done; I've never done it. I drink mine hot and black.

Actually did a few nights ago with canning jars. Ladleing hot goo into the jars with a funnel. Scalding hot stewed tomatoes will burn the piss outta your fingers.

Plus it saves a mess

That's right! My rememberer hasn't been the same since that hoop snake chased me for a mile and a half.

When I make my daughter a cup of tea, I serve it to her on a saucer; otherwise, it will spill on the table.


l told my pap and mam I was going to be a mountain man; acted like they was gut-shot. Make your life go here. Here's where the peoples is. Mother Gue, I says, the Rocky Mountains is the marrow of the world, and by God, I was right.

Always wondered about that. When Donald Duck’s uncle or cousin wtf visited.Goosey Poosey, like to ate him outta house and home. Had them sweet peas lined up on that foot long butter knife.

I used to try that, always made a huge mess. Blue tick hound won’t eat peas.

My maternal grandfather did but more from spilling it cause his coffee cup was shaking so bad. He would drink coffee and listen to the Astros on the radio at the kitchen table at night.

My Dad , who would be 115 years old, was the last person I ever saw do that, and then only if he was in a hurry and the coffee was too hot.

I have never heard of this before now. And frankly, I have to say it's about the silliest damn thing I have ever seen.

My maternal Grandmother was a champ at that saucering. Two saucers full and that stovetop cowboy coffee would almost be cool enough to drink. Still my Sunday morning way of making coffee. Hunting camp coffee. Make you wanna holler High dee ho!

My grandmother did it with coffee.

She'd make homemade biscuits from scratch every morning and make sure there was some fat back in the green beans for dinner. When I stayed with her, and we were going to eat chicken for dinner...it meant that I had to go chase down the chicken for her.

Her cupboard seemed to only have home canned goods, crisco, flour, and karo syrup. She lived North of Buford in Georgia.

Don't have to.

I start my cup when I go out to feed the chickens and the dickie birds. When I come back in it's the right temperature most times.

I hate coffee so hot it burns the tongue. In the past have made ice cubes out of coffee for when I was in hurry to drink it. Didn't lessen the strength that way.

I agree, but at least they don't suck the milk out of the cows' bags.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe, an Obama phone, free health insurance. and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.

Hell no. No sugar in coffee ever by any of my family. No men I know of put sugar in their coffee. Or women either.
Black coffee. The kind you could stand a horse shoe up in. 😜

My Grandmother & Mom both made sweet tea, though. Grandmother’s was like syrup. It’s a Southern thing.
