I remember one day when I was making a cup of tea for my friend Karen and she said, “Oh no I can’t drink out of that cup. I never drink out of cups with logos.” I laughed. I found it quite enchanting that although she is one of the calmest, accepting, and patient people I know, the idea of a cup with a logo on it just bugged her. But then again, I noticed that different people like drinking their morning coffee or tea out of all kinds of different containers–some like chunky mugs, some like tiny ones, others are Venti all the way, paper, styrofoam . . . and that’s just cups. I like large, smooth cups with white insides (so I can see the color of my tea). And then I (sometimes–guilty truth) fool around on line reading random articles about weird science facts, medicine, news, and of course, wardrobe malfunctions. Then I open my journal and begin to write.
Writing prompts section: #21: if you’re like most people, there is something unique about what kind of tea or coffee cup you prefer. What is your favorite kind of cup and why? Why not draw a picture or take a picture to add to your journal?
