I’m a mug


That they’ve survived this long is a mystery

Now this was just a bit of fun…I’m a big fan of the green Penguin books – crime and mystery, no highbrow purple ones, ta – and as Penguin came into being in 1935, the same year as Enceladus, I had a couple of these made up. The only mystery is how they’re still with us – the mug death rate on boats is quite high…drowning mostly…That said, we do tend to keep these for ‘inside tea’, deploying our rufty-tufty Stanley thermos-style mugs for ‘cruising coffee’. They have variously survived the ‘elbow knock’, the ‘rope lasso’, the ‘windlass swipe’, and other inadvertent assassination attempts but they’re okay…a bit dented but okay.
