Ode to My Thermal Leaky Coffee Mug, May It Rest in Peace

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Today, I threw away my travel thermal coffee mug.

This is normally not a big deal for most people. But for those of us who can survive only after a morning filled with Java, it was a big deal for me.

After the 50th time of it leaking coffee on me on my way into work and murmuring profanities at myself as I wiped off my coffee stained bag, I decided it was time to put it down for good.

I had that thermal mug for well over a decade. More like 15+ years. It was red. From Starbucks. Sexy. A gift.

Now I have to buy a new one.

The last one served me well.

To all my fellow coffee lovers: take a sip for me and my former mug tomorrow morning. And if you have a thermal travel mug that keeps your coffee warm but does NOT yet leak, give it a wink from me.
