May Photo A Day : Day 4 : In My Cup

There is nothing but a Ball!!!

A pink ball i.e.!!!

A plastic ball to be specific!!!

You Dirty Minds!!!! See the picture!!!!

The story behind this combo is simple. Thanks to my son my purse is always loaded with toffees/ chocolates and there are days when you can even find a diaper or some cars in it. This mostly happens either on Mondays or when I am back after a break. So, this fateful day this ball of Gems which I am sure I was trying to hide from brat landed in my purse. If I remember correctly I carried it with me for a week before dumping it on my desk. It then rolled from here to there and ultimately when I was scolded by my neighbour cum colleague; I straightened my desk (which is always messy) and the ball landed on this cup and rest as they say is history. They have been married and glued onto eachother for last 6 months ;-)

The hi-story behind the cup is simple. Bought it 3-4 years back used it for two years and chucked it in favour of the other cup. Not that I don’t love this but its shape is such that it is never seems full and the height is so much that it takes ages for the sip to reach my mouth ;-)

Vaise I fell in love with the cup coz of the message on it ;-)

So, what's in your cup???
