A small history lesson for those of you who have never seen one - or even heard of one, much less ever used one.
JOAT I am not paranoid. I do not "think" people are after me. I "know" damn well they're after me.

That's all we had at night when I was a kid and stayed with my grandparents on their farm. Folks who shared the same bedroom got to know each other really well. Amusing now to see one with a flower arrangement in it on an entry table ... or used as a punch bowl.

With me it was my great-grandparents. And they had the fancy ones, white porcelen (?) with lids.
OK, flower arrangements, I can see that, and possibly even keep my mouth shut - depending on how nice the person is.
But a PUNCH bowl? I don't care if the damn thing is brand-new and never been used, it's the thought. Urgh. Musta been one of those damn interior decorators, or "artistes", to come up with some idea like that. Ahchh.

Read a story once of a family that moved to a farm somewhere on the frontier. The neighbors, as was the custom, greeted the newcomers and even brought over food. One of the neighbor families were Czech (or German), brought over soup; to the horror of the newcomers, the soup was in a chamber pot. Fortunately, the newcomers' wife was quite diplomatic and remarked on the size and beauty of the pot, asking what they called it in their language. The young lady beamed and answered, "Suppetopf" (German for soup pot). At that point the newcomers realized that it was safe to eat the soup as that the pot had only been used for food.
