Lesson 1171 – Coffee and Chickens

As a writer, you know that I like me some coffee. If I could, I would probably start a coffee I.V. first thing in the morning (interestingly enough though, I rarely drink coffee after 11 a.m.)

I like coffee and I like it hot. Very hot – which is why I always have to grab one of those cardboard sleeves (and then feel guilty about throwing it away because I always forget to save it.)

A friend on Facebook let us know that her friend was making and selling sock puppet monkey drink sleeves to raise money for her church. Sock puppet monkey sleeves? This would solve my problem and they’d be too cute to lose track of.

I ordered a few.

Then I reached out to my friend – do you think your friend could make chicken ones? My friend checked and sure enough, I have discovered that her friend is brilliant.

This is the design she came up with for the chickens.

Needless to say I ordered more.
