The best thing about belated birthday gifts is that you’re usually not expecting them and it provides lingering joy to becoming a year older. Cris from skeletaldropkick was the third person who got stuck with me for the Etsy Dark Side birthday swap, and her gift arrived last Friday.
It was worth the wait.
Skeletaldropkick mugs suit me better than any other mug in the world. I bought one back in 2007 and used it as my work coffee cup. This is what ensued:
This is my mug that I use at work. Sometimes, I leave it on the kitchen counter when I’m on a fervent quest for hot chocolate or making a pee pitstop before refilling with coffee.
Last night, I was washing it out when Collin (i.e. The New Guy) walked in behind me. After we got the “Jesus Christ you scared me!” formalities out of the way (seriously, that guy is the most quiet walker ever; his soles are padded with clouds I think), Collin laughed and said, “I should have known that mug was yours.”
I’m not sure what that says about me, but I’d like to believe it’s that I am an awesome young lady with great taste in handmade wares. Oh, and that I’m good at Boggle and blow jobs.
I still love the shit out of that mug, but I stopped drinking out of it for fear of my butter fingers giving it a literal skeletal drop kick. Still, it was the first thing I brought with me when I started my job at The Law Firm last April and it sits ghoulishly on my desk with pens sprouting out of his head. Oh, and don’t forget the cameo appearances he made during the Great STD Cookie Party of ’08!
I’m so excited to have a new skeletaldropkick addition. Can’t wait to see what kinds of lascivious shenanigans we can get into! Thank you, Cris!
