Day 292/365: Friday's Unscientific Poll: New Mug [20181019|20:00]

My father-out-law turned up this afternoon. He's staying the week to help the bloke whilst I go to London for (nearly) all of next week.

He brought me a gift. Well, strictly speaking, it's a gift from my mother-out-law, who saw it in Madrid and immediately thought, "I must buy this for Nanila!"

Here it is.

I would love to receive a gift like this from an older person - it's cute, and funny in a dad-joke kind of way. I think she did well.

Also I think there may be a next-level joke in there about what happens if you don't get your caffeine, or if people try to talk to you before you get your caffeine.

I definitely think mother-out-law meant this gift on both levels. She knows me pretty well. :)
