We still have only the one mug in our house.
Since I am now a regular coffee-swiller, I’d like a mug that is solely mine and very fun!
I had a coffee over at mom and dad’s yesterday aft, and used a practically perfect mug of dad’s that he got at Household. No, don’t even suggest that I beg him for it – it’s his favourite one, apparently!
I don’t want something ordinary. Nor something that looks like it belongs to a set.
I began my exploration around the china store…
At this point, a
rather scattered salesgirl offered some assistance. I had just spied this fantastic display!…
…and saw an empty box which should have housed the mug of this set. The
addlebrained girl ran hither and yon all over the store, but could not locate the missing mug. Okaaaayyy, then, onwards we go…
As I stood waiting, look who was looking at me!…
I have a strong suspicion he’d induce nightmares.
Flighty Sales Girl proposed one final option:
I don’t like settling for a purchase, so I walked out mug-less. *sigh*
There’s a shop at the mall across from us that is going out of business:
Everything is massively reduced for quick sale. I seriously did contemplate the mug on the right – it made me laugh! “Butt,” (haha!), I left Big Bertha on the shelf…
What do you think??!
Isn’t this always, the way, though. When you are specifically seeking “x,” you never can find it. Watch, I’ll probably be at some place like Zellers in the near future, minding my own business as I pick up Calcium Chews or a Valentine’s card, and !POP! – I’ll spot the perfect mug.
Remember my mindless knitting project? Yea. Spoke so very too soon.
Nothing is more annoying than a poorly written pattern. I resorted to writing out row-by-row additional notes:
I’m hoping to avoid the multiple trial-and-error attempts I made today for Sleeve #2!
What’s your favourite mug? And how many do you have in YOUR kitchen?!
Back to conquer lace!…
