Tragic coffee cup loss

    I confess: I have several favorite cups although I am known to cheat on them from time to time. I have my small ceramic Mickey Mouse cup and saucer from DisneyWorld for espresso luongos (its a "Minny" size of 5 ounces max), and my square-base handmade 10 ounce mug that is from a ceramic designer locally, and another souvenir mug my daughter brought back from Sea World that is massive, which I use for iced coffee. I hate small iced coffee.

    Yeah, I have to admit to mug love, I almost knocked Mickey off the counter yesterday and my heart skipped a beat - "Nooooooooooo-o-o-o-o Mickey, hang on!". Pitiful, really.

    You know, I thought I was the only freak who loved his "personal" coffee mug, but after reading stories from others, I guess we could all be classified as freaks!

    Or maybe we are all just "creatures of habits?"

    I try to avoid coffee only late at night since now that I'm retired, it might keep me awake longer than I want to be.

    I don't drink five hours till my expected bed time, which means I stop drinking it about the time I get off of work.

    I suffered a tragic coffee cup loss earlier this year. I'm a UT alum and I had this bone colored latte mug with the Longhorn logo on both sides. It was simple and I had had it for years. I always kept it at work and it had survived years of use and several office moves. One day i'm cleaning it and it falls over in the sink and one side of the cup just caves in. I really wanted to cry. LOL

    I just realized that I never concluded my original story. The replacement mug my wife was suppose to get has been lost, and the girl can't find it anywhere. I have settled on another cup, which serves its purpose OK, but I still miss "ol' faithful!"

    oh man, i totally know how you feel! i had my favourite coffee mug for years and my partner broke it. i've been searching for the same one, but the company that made it no longer carries it. i've moved on to a new mug, but no mug will ever be as perfect as that one!
