liquid measurements (or, it’s never to late to learn something new)

Though I received what I consider to be a stellar public education all the way through university, somehow there are a few things I never seemed to pick up along the way and have had to learn later–how to fold a fitted sheet (still don’t know how), which side the bread plate goes on (as opposed to which side the drink goes on) when setting the table*, and how many days are in each month**, amongst them. Okay, maybe these are less taught in school and more taught in ‘manners class’ but still.

I also never seemed to learn my ‘measurement equivalents’…that is, until tonight! Here goes:

“2 cups in a pint, 2 pints in a quart, 2 quarts in a half gallon, 2 half gallons in a gallon”

That’s free of charge. Enjoy. (Thanks to Kathy for the lesson!)




*join your thumb and index finger on the left hand it forms a ‘b’ and the right hand forms a ‘d’–bread goes on the left, drink goes on the right

**Make a fist, starting with your index finger knuckle, count the months (both July and August get counted on the pinky knuckle before coming back to the starting point–if the month is on the knuckle it has 31 days, if not, it doesn’t
