I have 3 different ones, and I do get rather irate if anyone else uses them. Coffee never tastes right otherwise

I've been using this one daily since my birthday in December. I'd love to see more pictures!

We bought five of these mugs in Aruba with slightly different nautical/oceanic scenic motifs on the same deep blue background. We're down to three cups now. Here's one. This one with the sailboats is officially mine. SO won't use it because the sailboats make it masculine (?).

Is it because they don't get cleaned like the other dishes? I rarely clean my mug because it affects the taste.

I don't often drink coffee, but when I do...... I don't care what you serve it in after the second Irish Coffee! Wait, is it coffee with Bushmill's or Bushmill's with coffee? I can't remember.

Sounds like the mug Spike used to have. The inside was darker than my blackest clothing item. He never washed it. Then one day his SIL got hold of it and it slipped out of her hand while she was scrubbing it and it broke. I don't think he has forgiven her to this day.

I have three. More often than not, I use the plain white one on the left. I usually have a cup of cafe au lait in the morning and tea in the afternoon. The same cup works well for both.

But if I'm having a big ol' cup of joe (very rarely) or a hot chocolate (more in winter than anything) then I'll use one of the other two. Even though they might not get used every day, they are MY mugs, and everyone who darkens my doorstep knows that.

Unlike most of you, my first cup of the day is mouthwash tea. Not too strong, but certainly not weak, with a touch of sugar (about 1/5 tsp, actually) and a decent pour of half 1% milk/half half-&-half. I do have a couple tea-only mugs, but my favorite is a 15-ouncer from OH. Now about those coffee cups. We have a cupboard full of a variety! Some are for Himself only. Of the rest I pick the size and design depending on what my mood du jour is. Today's brew is brought to me by my Bag Lady cats.

We drink tea out of mugs and coffee out of very large cups.
