I've used that trick for years.

If use romaine, and I've found a way to simplify the chopping process for the heads. I hold the base of the head in my left hand and with my right, I cut lengthwise, from base to tip. Rotate halfway and repeat so the head is quartered. If they are still a little large, I cut between the original cuts as well. Then turn the knife perpendicular to the head and chop from tip to base. I can completely chop a head of romaine into bite-size pieces in about 30 seconds using this method. It takes longer to scoop it into a bowl than it does to chop it! :)

I agree about watching out for foods that can get into the holes. It's not pleasant when you get something in there and digging it out is a big mistake. I ate a lot of macaroni, soups I could drink, soft breads, etc.

Stay completely away from anything that requires a sucking motion - straws, slurping spaghetti (eat spaghetti without slurping), etc. Dry socket is a *#$(@, but by all means, if you get a nasty case of dry socket, and the pain will most definitely let you know when you have it, do not hesitate to run back to the dentist, begging for mercy. When I got it, the dentist squirted some kind of gel in the socket. The pain was gone almost instantly and did not come back.

I find in my house, a coffee cup works just fine as a wine glass. ;)

My husband and I have always used separate blankets and no flat sheet. He's a blanket hog and I learned the first week we lived together the secret to happiness is separate blankets!

One hint - if the dish slides around (like a Pyrex is prone to do), throw a dish towel on the cutting board first.

Yes! I use my large wooden cutting board as a trivet for my 13x9 pyrex dishes quite often!

If there are any Asian markets near you, check those. They usually have the stackable containers that either snap together or have a strap that keeps them together.
