Mug Shot

This is my coffee mug -


Cute, eh? It took me 6 months and a lot of stained teeth to get her just right.

That's right, I haven't washed that mug, ever, in my 6 months of being its father.

Inside is 6 months worth of late nights, early mornings and rush projects. Inside that cup is any chance of me saying "Good morning!" as I pass a coworker in the hall.

Inside that cup are the hopes and dreams of a 26 year old who just wants to make it home in time to watch reruns of Seinfeld.

Those coffee stained rings represent mornings that have come and gone - like tiny, disgusting trophies for surviving timesheets and spreadsheets and empty bedsheets.

Unsanitary? Unprofessional? How about Undeniable - nothing will stop me from my morning cup of coffee - not dried coffee rings, not grounds stuck to the bottom for the last 3 weeks, not...

...wait, is that a hair? Oh that is fucking gross, man. I gotta wash this thing.

You're going to feel awfully silly when that turns out to be the original source of swineflu.

Don't argue with the science of it all.

Is it weird that it kind of looks like an unwashed toilet bowl? That's right Jeff, it looks like you pooped in your coffee mug.

Kind of like patina on copper, it adds character.

That's kind of disturbing. Although I think the leftover lip marks are the grossest things ever on cups/mugs/glasses. Not that you talked about that, I just think lip marks are grosser than coffee remnants.

Looks like we've got ourselves a sequel to tha other video.

We'll call this one:

"One man, one cup."

Seriously, dude...looks like you totally shit in there.

I have permanent lipstick prints around my plastic Georgia Tech cup. They just will NOT go away.

Also, your word verification is calling me "cheap." Thanks a lot, word verification thing. I think it's calling me handicapped, too.

I thought mug shot was going to include a totally different kind of shooting...

Gilahi said...

Assuming that's a mouse pad under there. Whatever it is, I find those eyes much more disturbing than the coffee cup.

The germafoob in me is screaming right now.

I gotta agree...that totally looks like my boyfriend from college's toilet.

Start drinking juice out this cup in the afternoon. The acid will eventually clean the cup. May take a couple of years but it will save you a lot of work.

People who don't drink coffee scare me a little. Like small children, or carnies.

Angela said...

I have a tea mug that looks very similar.

PS the word verification I just had said "nolife" as if it's mocking all us bloggers.

Allison M. said...

I can't wait to steal that mug.

Andhari said...

I think you should get a new coffee mug and put this one In a trophy case!:)
