The Red Cup

Do you remember last week when I wrote a post titled The Unspoken Coffee Cup War?

It was a topic which obviously resonated with a lot of you.  Many of you took the time to leave a comment or send me an email regarding your very own War on the Homefront.  (By the way, your comments and emails were both enlightening and very amusing!)

Briefcase was out of town when I went public with our marital war regarding The Red Cup.  When he called home while on his trip he never mentioned my post at all.  I assumed he was busy working and never saw it.  

A few nights later Briefcase was back home again.  I was busy typing away on a project when I glanced up and saw this in front of me:

    You go, girl.

    Maybe he never realised how much it actually bothered you. Or, some of your readers’ comments have given him some insight 🙂

    I am curious to see if this continues or if it is a one time thing. Of course if it was me, it would be sporadic for no reason other than just because.

    Yay! I hope this is actually the end of your war. If not, at least you got a little satisfaction. Alas, my coffee cup remains unwashed.

    That’s great.
    You know, I was thinking – you said this cup keeps stuff warm forever. Maybe he doesn’t wash it because he fears dumping out day old yet still piping hot coffee. Hmmm??? (Make that Hmmm??? sound with your best Craig Ferguson voice)
