Will Beg For Coffee. Really.
My mug collection continues to grow. This one came via a Christmas Party Gift Exchange. If you’ve never played this game, it’s pretty straight forward: Everyone buys a gift (good, bad, whatever) with a price limit on it. This exchange limit was $20, I believe. Then everyone puts the gifts in a pile, and then draws numbers. In the order of the numbers, each person selects a gift – or, once multiple gifts have been opened, then that person can steal an opened gift. A gift can only be stolen twice. My wife stole this one for me – I ended up with some cookie maker iron skillet. I love this, not only because it’s a mug, but it speaks to two of my favourite things: Dogs and coffee. I would definitely beg for coffee.
It came with a mug warmer – this little device that acts as a mini hot plate to keep your mug of coffee warm. I thought it might be useful, because usually on my second cup I tend to let my coffee sit for long periods of time. However, I realized after my first use of it that I forget to turn things off if it’s not readily apparent. I had left it on long after I finished my coffee and brushed my arm past it, nearly giving myself a burn. I decided to toss the potential fire hazard and kept the mug.
This mug has already seen some good use, as evidenced by the chip in the lip. Hazards of not having a dishwasher.
