For the record, I don’t think this is personality quirk is charming or the least bit interesting. I’d love to be able to say on a chilly fall day, “Oh, a cup of steaming hot tea would be PERFECT – thank you!” Or, “Let me just take off my snowy hat and sweater and lay them by the fire, and I’ll join you in that cup of hot chocolate!” Or even, “Ugh, I can’t THINK until I’ve had 2 cups of coffee.” All, sadly, would ring false coming from me.
(And for those of you well meaning souls who say, hopefully, “Iced tea?” I’m forced to confess that unfortunately, it reminds me of hot tea. I tell you, it’s a problem.)
All this by way of saying that it takes a LOT for me to go into a store called Steap. But it was worth it.
That’s right, Gentle Readers: Pantone Mugs. How excellent is that? As if in a trance I wandered into the store looking for more…
So hear this, family and friends: it is entirely possible to drink a nice cold Diet Coke out of a mug.
Or so I imagine.
