Cup with Single Use Plastic lid

the serial French-kisser

There’s no better kisser than this famous cup, sporting its plastic hat. It will walk the streets with you, stay hot just the way you like it, and won’t complain when you abandon it on a bench just a half hour after meeting. But beware, that mean little mouth will kiss you goodbye. Then off it will head for the beach, before jumping into the ocean and disgracing itself far and wide.

When you are on-the-go: choose a cup that you can return to the same place or chain. If you are grabbing your coffee to go every day, use your own mug or cup.
