When your hand touches something hot like a soup bowl or hot glass of water,do you then touch your ears to cool down your poor fingers?
B has a pair of sensitive hands, he can hardly carry a hot soup bowl from the kitchen to the dinner table, even it was not that far away. One day, I made a bowl with ear handles for him to carry it, so he don't have to burn his hands by lifting hot soup.
I call this a ear handle bowl.
I am going to make a few for my mom, even she has thick skin hands:)
