As an avid coffee drinker, I think it’s only right that I’m rather picky about what my coffee comes in. I like a BIG mug with a handle so big that I can fit almost my whole hand in it. The shape has to be just right and the width of the mug sides have to be fairly thin. Needless to say, it can be daunting to find the perfect mug. When I do find one that I love, I treasure it.
For the longest time, I’ve had two mugs that I love. (and a whole lot of strays that are pushed to the back of the cupboard as they didn’t make the cut) Those two mugs have been showing their age with chips and little tiny cracks on the inside. I knew they really needed to be retired to the Great Cabinet in the Sky, but I wasn’t quite ready to let them go yet…I still needed them. I’d been searching desperately for a replacement to no avail, when Shaun finally found it. The newest Perfect Mug for my collection.
I had my mug for about a week when tragedy struck. Yesterday, I came home to a tearful Mimi. She had done the unthinkable…she broke my mug.
Of course, I forgave her. I know that accidents happen. Later on, when I checked my email, I found one that she had sent me. I thought it was adorable (in the way that perhaps only a mother can) so I forwarded it to Shaun.
Here it is:
mom while i was getting my quessedia ready to put in the microwave i had an accident. i was moving stuff out of the way and i moved a bag. your blue cup with flowers broke and there is no way to fix it i already tried five diffrent ways. i will buy you another one. i feel really bad. but please dont yell at me i already did to myself. im sorry like nothing could ever fix it!!!
lots of love
(she signed her first and last name, apparently I forget who she is sometimes!)
P.S. i am soooooooooooooooooooo sorry mommy
It seems as though fathers can think it’s adorable too. When Shaun came home he called Mimi to him right away. Between the two of them, I got this.
