Favorite Mugs

I don’t always spill liquids anymore. Maybe that is because I use mugs that stick to my hands or desk, big and heavy. My favorite is a small one I bought at Logan airport in Boston 1980’s. It’s a Nissan thermal mug, steel and vacuum insulated that was a cool design at that time. At $20 dollars in 1980, that was a buy I had to think about for a few seconds. The current one is big , twice the Nissan’s size and also steel, so it is evident I like steel mugs. They feel rugged and strong, less prone to tilting and spilling the cargo. IThis is a fair representation of the current.

  1. Nissan….Steel….Rugged….Are you sure you’re not drinking your coffee out of a truck?

  2. You made me laugh… Ha-ha.. I can’t even breath bu I am laughing. I guess I should say (between you and me), that I am clumsy…

  3. I never saw a steel mug in my life.. sounds somehow like a contradiction to me, in the sense that I associate steel with cold, and mug with hot… but your painting is nice and warm, and the cup looks pretty cool (not cold) , so I guess I must rethink or refeel my steely reserve!

  4. I don’t believe it is steel; but that is what it says. Not sure if my memory served me well, I went to the kitchen and wrote exactly what is on the mug. And it also says… UNBREAKABLE!

  5. Unbreakable, eh? Just leave it at the bottom of our stairs, and Miki will prove you wrong!

  6. I love the feel of a sturdy cup. Now I’ll be on the lookout for a steel one!
