This is my sippy cup:
Let the record show that the penguin belongs to me, a married woman in her thirties. I don't have kids, and I'm not giving it to a small child. THE SIPPY CUP IS MINE - BACK OFF.
Let me explain.
I always wake up in the middle of the night, desperate for a sip of water. Ergo, I keep a glass or bottle of water on my bedside table. But this is a risky move on my part, because I am an incurable spiller.
On average, I spill a full glass of liquid at least once a week. If I'm lucky, I spill a glass of water on the kitchen floor at 11 a.m. If I'm really lucky, I spill a mug of coffee. On my laptop. Two days in a row. (This has actually happened).
Every month or two, I spill an entire glass of water in the middle of the night. And it's never just a sip or two of water. It's always the entire freaking glass, filled to the brim. If I'm lucky, the water just sloshes all over the floor. If I'm really lucky, I manage to drench myself and the bed. I'm like my own personal splash zone at Sea World.
The first time I spilled a glass of water all over the bed when I was 90% asleep, it was kind of amusing. The second time, it felt nostalgic. But every time thereafter, it has been so unbelievably annoying - why am I so clumsy/stupid/incapable of drinking a cup of water like a normal person? Hence, the sippy cup. It's my new bedside companion. Hopefully it will help my little water spilling problem. But if not, I'm still keeping the cup. I really like penguins.
