Have you ever experienced exploding glassware?
I hadn't, until today.
I was unloading the dishwasher and reached into the cupboard to move a glass to make room for more. As soon as I touched it, it blew up! The cupboard was at head height, so part of the glass hit my face (but no, didn't cut). More flew past me, about 6' out into the kitchen. Some flew off to the side, all over the kitchen counter. Some stayed in the cupboard.
In other words, there were chunks of glass everywhere.
It blew into (sort of) rectangular chunks rather than sharp shards. They reminded me of shattered safety glass from a car window.
I was in a hurry to get it all cleaned up before the dogs walked in it. So... work got put on hold for an hour or so while I vacuumed and re-vacuumed the kitchen.
Now I'm thinking that the rest of the glasses from that set should go in the trash. That glass could just as easily have landed in someone's eye - I was just lucky. And for that, I'm thankful.
