Ferengi Shot Glass

Posted by terrepruitt on March 5, 2011

Do you collect anything?  My husband collects shot glasses.  He has them from all over.  ALL over . . . . . . even space.  This one is probably from the furthest away.  This is a shot glass from Ferenginar 🙂 .  Ferengi is from the Star Trek Empire.

You might be able to see it is made up of two pieces.  The metal piece made up of rings that hold the glass “shot glass” portion.  It is a fun design.  I guess it is perfect for off world shot taking.  I don’t know if he has ever drank out of it.  Now that I think about it is quite funny.  He collects shot glasses, but he doesn’t really drink shots.  He does like to buy a shot glasses from places we have been.  So it is the collecting of the item that brings him pleasure.  It is a bonus if the shot glass is cool or unusual.

Because I started this blog to promote Nia, my Nia classes, and grow in my Nia practice by writing and posting about it, I always have Nia in the back of my mind when I am writing a post.  Even if it has nothing to do with Nia, like this one.  It is about collecting, it is to share picture of this particular shot glass.  But as I was typing the part about my husband collecting shot glass because it makes him happy, it brings him pleasure I thought of a comparison to Nia.

The  similarity is that he doesn’t really like to drink shots, a person could not really like to workout or exercise.  My hubby likes to buy shot glasses, it brings him pleasure, Nia is a dance, if you like to dance it brings pleasure.  If the shot glass is cool or unusual it is better, Nia is cool, it is unusual, it is different.  The fact that John doesn’t really drink shots doesn’t mean that it is not nice to have shot glasses around in case he wants one so he gets the benefits of owning them.  Nia doesn’t really FEEL like exercise because the participants are involved in a movement that bring pleasure, but since we are moving in all different ways, up down, around, fast, slow, and engaging so many body parts and muscles it IS a workout.  You DO receive benefits as you do when you do traditional exercise.

Funny how things can be connected.  Funny how things can be collected.  Do you collect anything?  What?
