Where is my cup?


It has been quite a week {I know, it's only Tuesday}...it's one of those weeks where you wish you could click your heels like "Dorothy" and disappear or twirl away somewhere...I will take either.

After the kids got off to school, I was going to make myself a quick "hot" drink. I use the same mug everyday...my big, favorite, red {Starbucks} mug. It's always been a perfect fit for me.

I couldn't find it anywhere...it was not in the cupboard, dishwasher, sink....no where! The night before, I had gone to dinner with some friends. So I thought maybe while I was gone it was put away in a new {spot}. But, after much searching...I could not find it.

I forgot about it for a while...then my 5 year old tells me she knows a "secret". I tell her we don't keep "secrets"...what is it about? She continues on that "...it's about something red. Right then I knew...my Starbucks mug.

"Now, if you have my mug please give it to me or if your broke it...just tell me.". She nods her head "no" and tells me she didn't break it....Daddy did!

So in disbelief that my husband broke my favorite mug and didn't tell me...I sent him a little email to his busy Blackberry that looked like this....

Do you have something to tell me~

Funny how attached we get to certain things like mugs, isn't it! I hate it when hubby uses "my" mug in the mornings! Hope your day improves!

Eek! Sorry about your favorite mug! :( Several house moves ago, my Hubby put off telling me that he accidentally dropped and broke an entire BOX of my favorite collectibles. That was not a fun day, when he finally 'fessed up! Lucky for him he was forgiven when he promised to buy me as many of that collectible as I wanted without question from then on! LOL!! Hope you get a new fave mug soon!
Blessings,
Stacey

I have certain mugs I love too! Maybe you can get an even better one to replace it

Mari said...

Too funny! And what did he reply?

Dawn said...

oh my gosh!!! has he replied yet? maybe he'll swing by starbucks on the way home for a replacement?

i have my own favorite mugs...but only one that i think is irreplaceable. and i try to keep it in the abck so no one uses it. which is pretty silly, i know :)

my son can keep any secret from me regarding his dad .. junk food, late night wii playing and so on ....
but it takes nothing for him to throw me under the bus and tell my husband if i've talked on the phone during the day or showered right before he came home

I'm giggling (sorry!).

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...
