Somewhere along the line, someone gave us these four dinky coffee cups. They're not mugs. Barely cups, even. Cuplets. Blue coffee cuplets. And I've taken a liking to them. For three reasons.
- They're tiny. I have a small, bullet-shapped thermos that I take to the office in the morning. I used to take a regular mug....either my Starbucks' Seattle mug or the one these guys sent me for being a good customer. Then I realized that, when using those mugs, I could have coffee once during the day. I switched to the micromuglet and now I can enjoy coffee 3x a day before draining the Java Bullet Train.
- They bring a certain gravitas to any setting. Nothing like sitting around discussing Important Stuff in the strategy room with everyone else drinking their swill from paper cups, only to pull out the fine china.
- The little cups make me feel like I'm sitting somewhere in a Marriot's resturant, not in my house where the kitchen renovation stretches even further into perpetua. They give me a certain measure of escape from craziness that my day will bring....as if all I have to say is "Will you make ________ (insert your irritation here) go away?" and some unseen Marriot employee will smile and say "My pleasure...." as their training teaches them to do.
