My Morning Smile

I love this mug.  It makes me smile every morning before I embark on my illustrious career, scrubbing toilets, changing diapers, cooking meals for little people who won't eat them.  You know.  The usual.

I'm only doing this job to keep myself busy between films.

An old boss gave it to me.  I tried not to read too much into that.  She also said I should be a stand up comedian.  And she wasn't the first boss to suggest this.  I tried not to read too much into that either.

This isn't my first "morning smile" routine.  Years ago, I had a sunshade for the windshield of my car.  One side had a picture or something, but the other side said in huge red letters.  HELP NEEDED.  CALL POLICE.  Well, I worked at the police department.  I got the biggest chuckle out of parking my car facing the street putting up the "call police" side of my sun shade.  Okay, maybe the chuckle wasn't very big, but it was a chuckle.  That is the most we can ask of some mornings, isn't it?


  1. Cute mug! I have a lot of mugs...a popular gift for piano teachers... I used to teach piano.... for info on boilermaker see my comment to you on my blog....
    Are you wrapping your gifts yet? :)

  2. I loved Boynton's (the illustrator of your mug in case you didn't know she did books) books, too. I had many (and took many out of the library when my kids were little). She has such a great sense of things. Mercer Mayer too. Glad your comments are working again.
