Do you think bears would prefer to drink tea or coffee? I personally think they’d reach for the stronger caffeine hit from a big cup filled with coffee … especially after emerging from a long and restful hibernation. I know I’d be needing some real coffee after being stuck in a cave for all that time. Perhaps that’s why bears sometimes get a little upset with us humans? Maybe we’re coming between them and their first cup of coffee?
I don’t know if you’ve seen the ‘Hidden Animal Teacup’ series, but I recently made the bear version my own. While this is technically a teacup, I’m sure you and the bear won’t mind that I’ll be using mine for coffee more often than not. I’m a bit of a rebel like that.
The cutest thing about these cups is that as the surface level of your drink reduces, your little hidden animal is slowly revealed. I think this bear and I are going to become fine drinking partners.
Welcome bear friend, let me never find anything more unpleasant than you at the bottom of my cup. Have you ever found something icky in your cup AFTER finishing a drink? I seem to remember one horrifying childhood experience, when I found a nasty cockroach at the bottom of my glass of red cordial … that’ll teach me for drinking with my eyes closed!?!?
Let’s raise our glasses (or cups) to a happy weekend! May your drinks be filled with cheer and surround you on the very finest of occasions … I’m off to make a cup of coffee and see how my homemade Black Forest Cake is coming along … xx
