Hi and welcome to Friday Fun Facts! Come play along and learn something new about me, and I’ll learn something new about you.
Okay, I admit it, I have some weird quirks and habits, but I think we all do. One of the oddest, at least according to my hubs and kids, is that I have a few select cups that I use for certain beverages. I mean as in I HAVE to have those particular cups, no others will suffice. One of my quirks with dishes is that I must have matching sets…my everyday dishes, my cups, mugs…everything. Except for these select cups. No rhyme or reason, but it tis the way it is 🙂
Now mostly I’m a girl that likes her water. And I can drink that out of any cup, as long as it’s glass (no plastic cups in this here house…sorry) A cold beverage just tastes better in a glass…or something breakable. LOL.
Then I have that fun cup—actually I have 2…one for me and one for my sis—that is perfect for when my sister is over and we are enjoying something a little more adult. You know, something you might put a paper umbrella in or a toothpick filled with fruits or veges or sometimes sausage…thinking bloody mary here 🙂 I love the colors…it just screams “I’m going to have fun and you can’t stop me.”
Then I have the other beverage that I love love love! My coffee. I love my coffee with a little bit of froo froo creamer…usually French vanilla but sometimes I like to jazz it up and go all crazy and add a dash of amaretto creamer or chocolate flavor, or whatever strikes my fancy on grocery shopping day 🙂 I also add 2 packages of sugar—and by sugar I’m referring to the artificial sweetener—Splenda more than likely.
When I’m on the go, I have my favorite travel mugs that suit my coffee needs. As you can see the Coca Cola one has been well loved. The kitty cat one reminds me of my cat Chocolate, which is the main reason I bought the cup.
Now when I’m at home, I have 3 different mugs that I use the most because they are roomy and I just like the way they feel in my hand. But last summer hubs and I road tripped it to South Dakota to visit Mt Rushmore and I entered the gift shop to buy something for the kids and I. From across the room a light beckoned me forth, slanting with bright brilliance over the best coffee mug in the world. My Mt Rushmore ceramic coffee mug is the prettiest green, lightweight, and comes complete with the perfect sized handle. I know my other cups are jealous because they have been ignored for quite awhile, but I don’t care. And I’ve already informed hubs that if this mug breaks, we’ll be taking another road trip. Well, unless I can find it on eBay. lol
Which brings me to today’s Friday Fun Fact question….Drum roll please…
Do you have a special mug, cup or dish that you HAVE to use when you are drinking or eating something in particular? No other will do, and when people find out that you play favorites, they give you that look—you know the one—like you’re a little bit off your rocker? lol
Looking forward to reading your answers.
