tony's mug

I snagged a Sour Cherry Pottery mug at NCECA and brought it home, showing it
off to my family like it was a jewel. Pointing out the indentations on the
side, I told my kids that Tony called them butt cracks (he does!), knowing
I'd get a chuckle out of them.

I am wondering now if I'll ever get a chance to use that mug. My younger
daughter uses it daily and it is always in the dishwasher. I finally asked
her why she always chose that mug for her soymilk - was it because she liked
the butt cracks? Was she a budding shino aficionado? Or was she a little
pottery connoisseur?

"No, mom," she says. "I like it 'cause it's wide and low and it's just the
right shape for dunking your cookies into your milk!"
