Your Coffee Mug

I'm not talking about a coffee mug. I want to know who else has a coffee mug that they have to have that morning brew in.

For me if the java isn't in my Zebra mug it just isn't the same.



There is just something about the familiarity of that mug in my hand that makes the coffee that much better. If I have to use a different mug it just isn't the same satisfaction in the cup of joe.

Anyone as crazy as me when it comes to the AM. drink.

I have six large "café au lait cups". They are mug sized, but cup shaped. I have some other, similarly sized and shaped cups, but I prefer to use the blue and white ones with flowers.

Now that's what I'm talking about.

I'll bet ya the coffee doesn't taste as good in a different mug.

Anyone who even thinks about using my zebra mug had better be fast on there feet.

Plenty of coffee but only so many mugs.

My tea mug has kittens on it, and I brought it with me from Romania. It belonged to my grandmother, and if anyone aside of me dares to touch it, I have trained the kittens to bite, scratch, and hork hairballs at them.

With love,
~Cat

Cat I'm so happy to see I'm not alone.

Ethel and Lucy (My Kitties) know not to mess with my zebra mug. Glad to hear your attack kitties protect your special mug.

I know I sure wouldn't mess with it if a kitty was going to hork a hairball at me.

I have a 12 ounce Happy Bunny (in a straight jacket) mug that says, "Cute but psycho". There is a second cup, 12 oz also that says, "Pardon me, but you have obviously mistaken me for someone who gives a ...." Dad gave me that one when I was about 18 years old.

Ha! Cats are very smart to not mess with anything which resembles zebras. Zebras are awkward and they tend to step on tails, yes?

With love,

PF. those sound like wonderful mugs. But can you drink the java and enjoy it as much if it's in a different one?

Cat, I agree that cats are very smart. But I think the reason Ethel and Lucy don't mess with my Java mug is because I'm a grumpy old bastard and not because of any zebra markings on the mug.

But I love them beyond belief and I think they like me. After all they are nice enough to let me live in there house.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that these were my morning coffee mugs. I only use the Happy Bunny now, but had used the "Pardon me..." mug every morning up until I got the Bunny mug.

Shrek wouldn't think of using either mug...because I AM cute, but psycho. I even take the mug with me when we go out of town.

When we go for breakfast, I've already had at least two cups of coffee, so it doesn't matter what I drink out of by then.
