AS LONG AS IT KEEPS THE COFFEE WARM … – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP- Sunday: MUG


There was a time in my life when every gave me a mug. Usually a mug with some kind of saying on it. Like ” Aren’t you glad you’re 50?” and “Eat dessert first” or some cryptic saying about tea or coffee.

I appreciated they make modestly priced gifts, but it reached the breaking point when one day, I couldn’t close the cabinet door. I donated ALL our standard mugs to the Senior Center. Time has passed and the mugs are back. Gifts, of course, and every time I buy dishes, it comes with a full set of mugs I will never use. The old teacup and saucer have gone the way of all things, it would seem. Just as well since they were even more difficult to store.

Morning coffee is ready

Personally, we’ve switched to Contigo insulated covered metal cups. They will keep your coffee at drinkable temperature all day. Literally an entire day. They never tip over and cover your computer keyboard with coffee, either.

The downside is that instead of drinking some coffee in the morning, we can (and do), nurse it all day. I suppose we are entitled to at least one bad habit … and this is assuming that coffee is a bad habit. With which opinion I do not agree!

  4. Those mugs would be great on picnics and outings. I too had a cupboard full of mugs and I decided to get rid of all the ugly ones thinking life is too short to use an ugly mug. I don’t like really huge mugs and they seem to be getting larger and larger. So I bought my bird mugs and those are the ones I use every day.

  7. I like coffee but it doesn’t like me, whether instant or percolated. I now stick to tea and drink it cold or hot with no milk or sugar. I also have a cupboard full of mugs, medium size, but no problem. the dishwasher does the job once a day.
