a travel mug scorned

SB said my travel mug looked like a wh*re.

I reeled in shock and confusion.

I'm totally over dramatic like that.

Give me a chance to freak, and I will - guaranteed - I will do a SUPER FREAK.

Anyhow...

I replied "WHOR*? What the hell? Did you just call my travel mug a 'ho?"

He continued "It looks like something a stripper would carry if she carried a travel mug".

I was further confused because does that mean he equates strippers with 'hos?

That is a horrible assumption to make, in fact those two are barely associated in my humble opinion. A stripper is a dancer who catches a draft while collecting some bills, while a whor* is a person who tries to steal other people's mates and doesn't pay their bills because the rules don't apply to them. Damn freaks.

So I asked "is it the teeny tiny rhinestones that are driving you to insult my travel mug?"

He stared at it for a few more minutes and then replied.

"forget it, it looks like a flashlight... a flashlight who strips to pay the rent".

B*stard.

Dammit... he's right.

Strippers and whores get a bad rap.

I think it looks like something an old, rich, white women would carry in whatever hand isn't holding the pooch. It probably has gin in it.

Just call it a mug who works hard for the money...

;)

When the picture popped up on my Reader, it was shadowed, and honey, it looked like some fancy little personal item, if you know what I'm sayin', and I was all, "My, my, my...I'm equal parts scared AND intrigued..."

I also totally want one. A bedazzled travel mug. Not so much a pimpin' personal item (maybe).

Tracey said...

HA!

I'd be more upset that the little rhinestones probably aren't microwavable. I HAVE to reheat my coffee...

Domestic Extraordinaire said...

Are the rhinestones dishwasher safe? I just have to know (and I don't even have a dishwasher)

mamatulip said...

Dude, that's not a travel mug.

That's a fucking sexy flask.

It's the Transformer called Strippo-bot. In her disguise.

She is more than meets the eye.

TentCamper said...

Looks t me like a protable urinal,like what I use when I drive a lot...with some fancy BLING....that mine is lacking

Heather said...

That is one HOT travel mug.

kittenpie said...

Damn, I've never seen a blinged out travel mug before... Did you bedazzle that baby yourself?

Anissa Mayhew said...

Don't judge the strippers! Or as we call it in my house "The Girls' College Fund Plan".

flutter said...

that's not even bling, that's BLANG

Assertagirl said...

haha yeah, um I have to agree with SB. Your travel mug is totally slutty.

Immoral Matriarch said...

As an ex stripper and whore [yep, both, that's what I said], I have to agree with him.

Mommie Mayhem said...

Whore or not .. I think the travle mug is sheek !

Kyla said...

I think your travel mug is coming on to me right now. I feel the need to go turn my $20 into $1's and stuff them in its rhinestone waistband.

crazymumma said...

amazing how we can still pull out strippers and whores as pejoratives.

anyhow. I like the mug.

Ms Blue said...

My first thought was that every black haired, skinny rocker boy in tight jeans needs an accessory like that! It would match their belts.

mothergoosemouse said...

I never pegged you as a fan of rhinestones.

Lisa b said...

Baby I kind of have to agree. That travel mug is a little hot for me.
but not for you. you total hussy.

VICTORIA said...

Now THAT is something my 13yo dtr would die for!

Laura said...

A whore doesn't carry a travel mug. I know. I am one.

kia (good enough mama) said...

I'm sure this isn't a great way to introduce myself, but I'm sorry...he's totally right. Will I ever be welcomed back here now?


Nah. Didn't think so.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

He is dead on.

I got one of these at Camp baby too and I just can't take it out of the house.

Too embarrassing.

Don Mills Diva said...

He's totally right - which is why that mug RAWKS!

Baby Tunnel Exodus said...

He's just jealous. Make sure to put one under the tree for him this year. Tell him don't hate... appreciate. Bwahahahaha!

apathy lounge said...

Okay...that post is a keeper.

Kat said...

Do you think they will ask me to remove my daughter from her Methodist Preschool if I show up with a mug like that? I am so coveting the mug.

abadeeba said...

Very sassy. Never much cared for travel mugs myself. Regarding your crappy filing system, you gots to check this out, but be careful as it is addictive and will turn into a giant time suck: http://www.mnftiu.cc/mnftiu.cc/filing.003.html

Mrs Imelda said...

I have to agree with SB on this one. When I look at that mug all I see a little waist with big boobs and wonder how that tiny waist holds them up!

On the other hand way to go for making this planet a greener one. Down with disposable cups!

Janet said...

Glen Campbell called: he wants his coffee mug back.

Like a rhinestone caw-fee...

ThatGirl said...

It looks like the gay cop from the Village People.
