Behold the Cousin of Rodrigo

My friend Anna L has a mug named Rodrigo. A few years ago, Anna L gave me a mug that looks just like Rodrigo, but is in fact his cousin, who I named Joaquín. Joaquín is the mug I pull out of the cabinet when I need a lift because it's impossible to stay down when you're holding a steaming cup of coffee wrapped in a rainbow unicorn.

It has also been my experience that if you are trying to argue while holding Joaquín, no one will take you seriously. Sometimes that is a good thing. There's so much turmoil and rabid argument going on in the outside world, is it necessary to carry the arguments home? I think not. Enter Joaquín, the peacemaker.

Top me off, Joaquín.


  1. Oh, this makes me so happy! I think these cousins are magical and I rely on Rodrigo heavily around here. In fact, I'm pretty sure morning wouldn't happen without him... Cheers and love, Anna
