Fan Letters To The Items In My Cubicle
Dear Copco Coffee Mug,
I really enjoyed drinking coffee and tea out of you. Your insulated walls are sooooo good at keeping beverages warm. Sometimes I wonder if the liquids I put in you are too hot. I've also been thinking that you may need to be a bit edgier to take things to the next level. Have you considered holding liquor as well?
You don't ring very often. I think the understated simplicity of your role in my workplace is what makes me fond of you. Brief moments of visceral connection and exchange of words, ideas, and meanings separated by long periods of silence. Keep up the good work.
Dear Messenger Bag,
Don't be discouraged that people call you a purse. They are just jealous that you get to hold things for me. Important things. So important, in fact, that I take them home with me at night. Without your pockets of my medical supplies and phone charging cables, I would be nothing.
