I tend to think too much about things that don’t really matter. Like this, for instance.

 

Soup and cracker mugs

 

At first glance I think, “Oh, that’s kind of clever in an I’d never buy that kind of way” but then I got to thinking. The mug’s whole purpose is to have a place to put your crackers while you are enjoying soup – but where do those crackers end up? In the soup! Therefore the little cubby-thing is pointless since you’d transfer the crackers from their container into that little cubby-thing – which is right beside the soup! – and then that yet another step to move the crackers from the cubby-thing to the soup.

I really don’t want to put that much effort into a bowl of soup.
