As I look around my desk trying to decide on an object I pick up my thermos and have a drink.
My Thermos. I love my Thermos, so why not talk about it. It’s a shiny midnight blue steel 750 ml container – so it’s not the prettiest thing in the world, but it’s functional. I was told when I bought it that it would give me 12 of heat and 24 hours of cold retention. I bought my thermos late last year at a 4wd, Fishing and Camping Expo that my husband, my baby son and I attended. There were a great number of things I would have liked to have purchased at that expo, but I was a good girl and only came away with the thermos (my husband did buy a bunch of other camping equipment).
I learnt the hard way with heat. I made a cup of coffee, poured it into my thermos and took it to work. After about two hours I gave up and tipped it into a regular mug so it would cool down enough so I could drink it. Now if I choose to put coffee in it I make it drinking temperature. Mainly though I just use my thermos as a drink bottle. I rarely manage to drink as much water as I should, but with the water being kept cold I end up drinking more, Yay!
Now just for fun – An ode to my Thermos:
Oh Thermos all shiny and blue
You keep my water cold
How much I love you
Your stainless steel construction
Makes you nice and tough
Which is a good thing because I’m careless
And your life is pretty rough
I fill you up with cold water
And toss you in the car
You bounce and roll all over the place
And it leaves not a dent or a scar
Oh my gosh your awesome
Oh how much I love you
I am so fortunate to have bought you
