Mug Warmer

In the fast-paced society that we live in, things change often.  One thing is a hit today and forgotten tomorrow.

Last week I wanted to have a cup of coffee at work but I didn't want to use a styrofoam cup.  The next day, I brought in one of my mugs from home so that I could enjoy a personal cup of coffee at my desk.

Nowadays, there are the proverbial cold/hot thermos type cups that supposedly keeps cold drinks cold for up to 12 hours and hot things hot for up to 6 hours.  Well, like a lot of us I have a couple of those, but I tend to use mine for cold drinks, not hot drinks.

Thus my dilemma.  I wanted my hot coffee and I wanted it in the traditional way - in a coffee cup/mug.  Needless to say that after about 10 minutes the coffee was barely warm.

Not wanting to relent and give up on my desire for a traditional cup of coffee, I sought to find a MUG WARMER.  Not sure if they even made those anymore, I set out online to find one.  To my surprise, they are still out there.  Of course, having been launched into the 21st century, I wanted the one with all the bells and whistles.

The cost was more than what I wanted to pay for it, but there is the least expensive one that you just plug in and your cup gets hot.

All I wanted was for my cup of coffee to stay warm until I was finished drinking it.  Why did that become so complicated?

For as much as I wanted my traditional cup of coffee at my desk, I have resorted to having it in the 21st-century contraption that keeps it hot for as long as it would take me to drink it, even if it takes me 6 hours to do so.

Modern technology is great, but sometimes I would like to enjoy things from the 'good ole days'.
