Okay, so I have this cup. It’s from Japan and called a Shi-maa cup. (I think that’s how you spell it.)
It’s gorgeous. I’m very much in love with this cup.
I also have a coffee cup.
I call my coffee cup Silevo, but I call my water cup, Black & Gold (B&G).
Silevo is getting jealous of B&G.
I’ve had my coffee cup, Silevo, for four to five years. It’s always been great for my coffee. It was the only thing I got from a really lousy job that lasted for nearly three months with no pay.
But I got this cool yellow cup!
For some reason, that made me happy. Ah, the memories I’ve shared with Silevo; the myriad pieces of writing with Silevo by my side.
But now my B&G cup is doing a great job of keeping my hot drinks hot, and my cold drinks cold. There is no condensation when I place ice in B&G. I made a really smooth bourbon and coke and it was fantastic!
It’s not hot to touch when I place my coffee inside, and yet it keeps the coffee hot for much longer than Silevo.
And so, I’ve considered using B&G for my coffee in the mornings.
But I tried coffee in B&G and it’s just not the same. There’s no handle to grip. I need a handle on my writing endeavors.
And so, I’ll go back to Silevo for my coffee and keep B&G for my ice cold water, bourbon, whiskey, coke, beer, lemon-lime, mixed drinks, mimosa’s, wine, and pretty much every other drink.
Silevo, however, will always be my coffee cup.
I love you Silevo.
But B&G is much more practical.
Did you know you could have an awesome Shi-maa cup made in Japan too? Yes, by simply going to my Bonanza booth, Beautiful_Japan, and ordering a Shi-maa cup. They come in red, black, mixed with REAL GOLD on the outside, and with gold and silver interior’s, and in all sizes.
Now, I haven’t added all the new cups quite yet, but I’ll keep you all updated. These make awesome Christmas gifts! Just sayin…. 😉 And, I will always bargain on the price because I think everyone should have a Shi-maa cup.
Shi-maa, the only cup you’ll need.
…Unless you drink coffee. Then yeah, hopefully you’ll get a free yellow coffee cup with a handle.
I hope you loved this little advertisement that wasn’t much of an advertisement. I mostly just told Grace I was going to write about the Shi-maa cup she gave me and so this is it. A little promotion mixed with a little humor.
I really am attached to my coffee cups.
(Slightly ashamed to admit that… heh.)
But really? Cups can be pretty personal. I mean, you drink socializing, sitting by the comp, reading a book, or just hanging out. There’s always a reason to have a drink.
So, cheers and gumbatte my friendo’s, and have a good day of searching! 🙂
Have a great day Grace! 🙂 ❤
