Tonawanda News — By time I awoke in the morning, my “DH” mug was back to being just a regular ol’ white mug. Huh, I guess they really, really aren’t dishwasher safe.
I decided to try handwashing the second mug to see if it was harmful to the design. I only got one good swipe in with a rather soft dishwashing brush and already the “D” was smearing. That didn’t take much.
So lesson learned: ceramics and Sharpies do not a good match make.
Perhaps a more porous-surfaced coffee mug would have done the trick? A different sort of writing utensil?
Either way, I have two cool new white mugs — well, once I run the other one through the dishwasher — and some new colors of Sharpies to have on hand at work. The only thing I missed was some time ... and perhaps that one subtle clue that would have finally made up my mind once and for all about Brody’s true intentions.
Don’t waste your time, folks, skip this pin. You’re welcome.
