Dear Coffee Cup, Thank you for never talking back …

Pay IT: Forward or Not Just PAY ... unless you forgot your wallet!“Thank you.”

“Thank you for always being there, for always listening, for always being the one I can count on to brighten my mornings, energize my afternoons … but most of all, I thank you for not talking back when I say stupid things, when I think ridiculous things, when I threaten to switch to green tea and shelf you for eternity. For all these things I thank you  and I’m so happy to have had this opportunity to let you know how I really feel.”


You find it odd that my coffee cup can understand me? Don’t be silly. It’s a mere 24-hour magical spell. Oh, don’t worry. It can’t talk back to me (yet) — remember, I thanked it for that. Besides, if my coffee cup could talk, well, that would just be plain weird.

Today’s post inspired by The Daily Prompt – Literate for a Day: “Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?”
