I bought a to-go mug! After years of pouring over the decision whether or not to buy one, I finally caved. I actually bought it during my bout with poison ivy...so I probably wasn't thinking straight. I didn't even look at the price tag.
You may wonder why this is a big deal or even a deal at all. Well, you see, to-go mugs are quick to disappear, or be left somewhere, or break in the dishwasher, or be taken by your spouse and buried in their car until the end times.
There is no sense in owning one. It is like throwing money in the trash. My former to-go mugs have only been in my care for 32.4 seconds at a time.
Nevertheless, I splurged. And I am the proud owner of a Kermit the frog green to-go mug. Saturday I took it Christmas shopping and sipped on some delicious spiced tea that my mom made.
I even let Stephen Grande take it to work one day. He of course, left it at his office. I had to confront him about it. He then brought it home with a bunch of other mugs that I had totally forgotten existed. It was a sweet reunion.
Purchasing a to-go mug is not a decision that is to be taken lightly.
-I'm pretty sure that's an old Chinese proverb
