One of the great skills I have acquired during my one score, one decade and three years of life is the ability to not only misplace things but completely lose them. A few weeks ago I purchased a swanky thermos, it was blue, had a fancy Swiss name and caught many a eye. But I lost it somewhere between taking #2 to storytime at the library and getting him home. I called the library, no one has turned it in. I do still have the top, so I am hoping someone will find it and see that it is pretty much useless without the top and turn it in. I could use one of my forty or so plastic travel mugs (by the way only one has a top - you guessed it, lost the tops), but the recent news about the toxins in everyday plastics has me questioning drinking a hot liquid in a plastic cup (heat causes the toxins to leech). So until I find my new thermos I am taking the advice of Richard Brenshaw: I am using a glass jar, one with a lid, only I like to call it my eco-chic (to con the VOR's phrase) travel mug.
