What does a coffee cup mean? What value does a cup hold? If you are anything like me, each and every coffee cup has a story. I could go on for hours about each of these cups. While I no longer drink out of most of these, as they are of great sentimental value, I do drink from them occasionally. When an old shipmate comes over, I’ll have one or two cups out that we’ll drink from, and remissness about our sailing days; and the trials and tribulations that came with them. Almost every cup I own has a story behind it. If you’d like to hear the story, you’ll have to meet me for a cup of coffee!
The cups in this picture are those associated with the sea going services, there are a whole number of cups which are not represented, as they were broken over time, or so well “soiled” (a good Chief never, ever, washes their cup) that the bosslady threw it out.
What about your coffee cup(s)? Do they bring back a rush of good feelings? Or bad? I tend to remember the good people I worked with that was associated with the cup in question, and their memories often bring back a snarky smile, that only holds value to me…and maybe that is why each and every one of these cups is so valuable to me, it isn’t the cup itself, its the fondness of the people associated with the memories of that place. What say you?
Have a good day my friends, and try to stay cool in this heat wave; which brings up another observation. I do not like iced coffee; but I am ok drinking cold coffee? Weird, isn’t it?
