Warm liquids are usually drunk from a cup. The slightly thicker walls of the cup retain the heat in the liquid longer than, for example, a glass. This effect is often used on cold days. Because in addition to the hot drink that warms us from the inside, we can warm up our cold fingers on the sides of the cup.
But sometimes a cup slips out of our hands and breaks into more or less pieces. If it’s your favorite cup, this incident is even worse. Because in addition to cleaning up the pieces, we also have to say goodbye to something we love.
