"The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing... to find the place where all the beauty came from." C.S. Lewis
Please tell me that you didn't use all of those mugs in one day. Because if you were just drinking tea, you really only needed one mug. If you were drinking tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and some other random hot beverage, then it's a different story.
The latter is most certainly true, minus coffee. I think one was just water, but we have a glass thief in our apartment so my using a mug was justified.
Perhaps I'll come solve the case of the glass thief with my newfound detective skills from my studies of Wilkie Collins and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.P.S. Is it bad that I'm more a of a Collins fan?
