Thrift Store Score - Beaker


Yes, I brought a beaker. It's a funny story actually:

I'm at Salvation Army in the house goods and here I see, what I thought at the time was, a liquid measuring cup. It's seventy-five cents and I decide to buy it. 
On coming home, I proudly show Dad my purchases. His response was not what I was expecting. 
"You bought a beaker?" He said in half a tone of disbelief and the other half "why in the world would you buy a beaker?".
"A beaker? It's a Pyrex measuring cup. See, Pyrex." I replied in confusion.
"No, it is a beaker, for scientific experiments. Pyrex is a type of glass."
I was shocked. In that moment, I finally realized why it was only in milliliters! It was a beaker! I had bought a beaker, without even realizing it! 
I'm having a hard time processing that I own a beaker and it's still quite embarrassing. 



Off to go and figure out "what in the world" I am going to do with a beaker,
