Just picked up my mug from the cup warmer and something gooey and gross–like it belongs in Ghostbusters–came with it. It looked like purple snot.
“What the fuck is that?” I asked the dog, who was clueless, which is not a surprise. Then the smell of raspberries hit, and I realized I’d forgotten to take my gummy vitamin this morning.
I usually dump the morning regiment on the cup warmer (while it’s turned off) because they can’t roll off it. Then I pop them down before making breakfast.
Now I have purple gunk under my cup, which will wash off, and a goopy smear of it on the cup warmer that may or may not ever come off.
I should just buy a new warmer and say ‘fuck it’.
