Last year, this mug was chosen for the cover of our Holiday catalog. It instantly became one of our best-selling items. This is one of the first times we asked Garrison Keillor to write something specifically for a product. The message is perfect for the cooler weather that comes with the winter season:
"Growing up in a place that has winter, you learn to avoid self-pity. Winter is not a personal experience, everybody else is just as cold as you, so you shouldn't complain about it too much. You learn this as a kid, coming home crying from the cold, and Mother looks down and says, 'It's only a little frostbite. You're okay.' And thus you learn to be okay. What's done is done. Get over it. Drink your coffee. It's not the best you'll ever get but it's good enough."
