Life Line

Hide your jealousy behind your cold, ceramic shell.  Accept I'm her favorite, her go-to, her vessel of choice for her daily dose of warm, caffeinated life. I'm the mug you desire to be.

Amazing how something so trivial can hold so much meaning. One of the things I got from my grandmother's house after her passing was an old Mother's Day mug from when I was a kid.
You captured that sentiment in 33 words!

My favourite mug is broken. Been like that for years. People say I should throw it out. But I won't.

This is fabulous! I have my favourite mug too and I can picture this happening on my shelves. Great job!

Great closing line, "I'm the mug you desire to be." Ha! Ha! Great description of the world behind our cupboard doors. :)

Hmm, now I understand all those chips I don't remember. Love the last line.

I liked your piece. I can see that jealousy... I try to spread out my use to avoid such things. I do have my favorite though...

LOL - Too funny... I have a favorite plate, bowl, mug, glass, fork, spoon, knife... I wonder if they lord it over the other ones that I only use as a last resort if someone has had the audacity to use my favorites? Very good!

Blessings,
Cheryl

Mine is an old Federal Express mug before they became FedEx. Every mug has a story...

My favorite dropped and cleanly broken a week before the presidential elections. A simple quote, "Liberalism is a mental disorder," is now cleanly severed in half. Broken or not, I still feel the same about the mug and the expression.
