But I digress.
On Tuesday I decided "you know what would be fun? If I took her around some of the antique stores downtown. Maybe I'll find some Christmas gifts and she can look at stuff." She loves to look at stuff.
We went into one that has a TON of cool stuff, old toys, McCoy mugs, old books...just full of stuff. Most of it is priced at what I would sell it for, so it's not anything I could make much money off of. But, lo! One thing made me stop in my tracks. A Fire King Strawberry Shortcake mug from 1983. It was $8.50, but I've read so much about Fire King advertising mugs selling for a ton, so I scooped it up, thinking "oh, boy! I'm going to make some money!" Baby was getting fussy, so I paid and we came home. While she was asleep, I checked completeds. I was extremely dissapointed.
So now I'm drinking my coffee out of it exclusively, just to get my money's worth. I didn't even LIKE Strawberry Shortcake growing up.
Weird thing? The coffee from it has a faint aftertaste of failure.
