This coffee mug - with a "Far Side" cartoon showing a CRISIS CLINIC in flames and going over a waterfall - has been one of Dan's favorites for many years.
But tonight the crisis hit home. Dan was just settling down to enjoy a nice evening cup of coffee and watch a little TV. He lifted his CRISIS cup by the handle to take a sip, and . . . the handle just broke right off of the side of the cup, spilling the entire cup of very hot coffee in his lap.
He says it's not a serious burn, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't hurt! It certainly spoiled his relaxing evening.
