Pig and Conrad


This is Pig and Conrad.  Conrad is Michael's coffee cu.... mug! Conrad doesn't like to be referred to as a cup; he feels "mug" is a more masculine description.  Don't even try putting him on a saucer, as he's still trying to forget the indignity of Mom subjecting him to one. Pig just doesn't have those issues.

  1. I'm with Conrad. Saucers are for wussies.

  2. Does anyone use a saucer? I don't think I even own any.....or if I do don't know where they are. Love your pig cup/mug.

  3. What a coincidence that this debate has erupted at this time! Just today, I used a saucer for the first time since I hosted my last tea party some 4 decades ago.

    Let me tell you, the result was an entirely unique hot-beverage experience. I felt very elegant. And, I'll be honest with you, somewhat foppish.

    What do the sock monkeys think?

  5. Yup... big ones are mugs. Got a big blue one from a dear friend. Each morning I sip from it and try to share emails with her. Not quite as good as sitting in her studio with her, but a nice substitute because we are 200 miles apart.

  10. What a great post! Thanks for the laugh...

    My Little One collects all things "piggie", so she got a kick out of your pig mug. Tell Conrad that his masculinity is obvious to anyone who sees him. And Nellie is spot-on... the more hot cocoa the better!

    Stay safe...
