RIP Canada Mug

Today is a sad day. Today I broke my favorite coffee mug.

It was an unfortunate fell from the kitchen counter onto the floor. It didn't shatter, so at first I had hope that it was OK, although the sounds it made gave me a sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach.

I quickly snatched it off of the floor and had a look...maybe it would only be the handle, and I could glue it back on. Well, it was the handle...but the handle was so solid that the mug itself cracked on either side of the handle.

It was a good mug.

It was over sized, so that I could cook a 'cup-o-soup' or a package or Mr. Noodles (Ramen noodles for you Yanks). There were a lot of lunches eaten from it...we have made it though some lean times, me and that mug. It could hold a full cup of coffee without being too full, which meant that I never spilled coffee on the way back to my office from the kitchen.

I got it from my Sister Alia and it's been with me for 10 years and at least 4 different jobs.

You will be missed...Canada Mug.

I feel your pain. :(

I have a big mug I like to use for tea and soup as well, and would definitely not be happy if it broke. Nor would my sister, since it was a birthday gift from her!
