I mean, there are teeth marks in the little arm strap the dog got so close to chewing the camera. Luckly, the pup missed the camera and important bits, EXCEPT for the charger. Chewed it to bits... So long story short, you get camera phone mug instead of a good one.
When I signed up for the Mugfest hosted by the AMAZINGLY wonderful Erica and Christy, I thought I was going to picture my Destin mug that I use to keep my keys, plastic pirate knife that I use for a letter opener, and pens in on my desk at work. But then I remembered this one:
Not too bad quality, right? Meh.
Anyway, this is my mug. It isn't pretty. It isn't one of a kind in this house. It has many brothers and sisters in the cupboard and boxed in the garage. (we only have 3 or so in the house because neither of us drink coffee and don't want to waste the space) It doesn't function as a normal coffee mug should. And it isn't in danger of anyone else wanting to use it and there for causing me to have to smack a biotch.
But it is special to me. It gets pulled out from under the sink when I need to get my head out of writing. When I just can't think of one more work to put down that makes sense. It helps. I day dream and paint with my mug. Which actually helps with writing!
Oh, yea. And one of my tattoo tubes lives in it too. I don't actually have a good reason why...it's just easier to leave it in the mug in the kitchen under the sink... There is a long story about the tattoo stuff in my house but I don't want to bore anyone who might not care.
We may not drink coffee ever or even hot chocolate very much. But mugs still have a purpose!
