I now notice people EVERYWHERE cradling their mugs
I had never seen it before except in homes where people were trying to conserve on heat. It's always accompanied by a overly large sweater, bulky cardigan to best effect.
Maybe there's nothing wrong with CRADLING a mug! Maybe it's comforting! Maybe it keeps your hands warm while you simultaneously draw your knees onto your couch and blow into your mug.
EMBRACE THE CRADLE.
These days I cradle in public, to see if I can spot anyone rolling their eyes
Famous mug cradlers:
Katherine of Aragon
Vincent Van Gogh
William Randolph Hearst
I reignite this trend in the 24th century.
Dr. Beverly Crusher, lesbian
Everything about be cradling furore on the DL cracks me up.
I had coffee the other day that arrived in a cup within oversized handle that looped to the bottom of the cup. It was virtually impossible not to cradle - I think the cup was designed that way, and yet it was in an art gallery with a very minimalist, severe aesthetic.
