At IKEA the other day, there was this green travel coffee canteen thing. I bet it would be REALLY easy to look up the real name for what I’m describing, but I’m not going to. Because I want a nap (unrelated, actually).
Anyway, the thing was regularly 6.99 but it was on sale for 3.99. Pssshhhaw, no way. That’s not sale enough for me. A week later (don’t explore why I go to ikea so much. It is literally 1 mile from my school and I pass it 6 times a week so a weekly stop is NOT that big-a-deal.) though, it was only 1.99. This I can do. Since I didn’t plan on coming back soon, I decided to not wait it out and see if it got any cheaper. I mean for 2 dollars, I could just as well turn it into a vase and it would still be a good purchase. (by the way, how do YOU say that word? Vase. Like “face” with a v in stead of an f, or like “paws” with a v instead of a p?)
Anyway, I used the thing for the first time today because well, with one roommate moving to Turkey tomorrow and the other leaving for philadelphia, the house is a bit upheaved, and it was the first thing I could grab and pour coffee into before I got washed away in the waves of “Oh my gosh, I’m going to be left alone with the
rat dog for 4 days!”
So here’s my point (are you ready?):
It is WONDERFUL! The
canteen tumbler mug THERMOS (i broke down and googled) is great! It kept my coffee super warm the whole time I was working (four hours) and I think having to portion it out into the little lid made me drink more slowly. Plus I felt dainty and cute. So I photo-shot the mofo. LIKE.I.DO.
