Of course, one of my favorite places in the world is Williams Sonoma. I entrance myself in all the designs; delight myself with the artistry, even the small objects, like place mats and cups. So, it’s Halloween time. I am not so much a Halloween person, but that is the décor pervading the inventory. It is not so different than the fall, with its orange and black colors.
So I find this cup. With its matte black finish and three legs and globe shape, it is the perfect cup for a witch’s brew, and when I slowly look at the price to see if I can afford it, I discover that that is indeed what they call it, - a cauldron mug. It is too expensive for tea, but if you just need one for brewing stinging nettle and bat zombie parts and other secret ingredients to cast a spell on the night, it is so worth it.
Of course I don’t do that; that would be one of my sisters. I just want my cup on display for a while, and then I see it looks sort of Mesopotamian, inconsistent with my Ethiopian theme. I need to change its nationality. I think about painting it, maybe Sheba and her court with big eyes, but this would not survive the microwave and its Halloween witch brew identity would be forever destroyed. Then I knit it a cap, a straw cap reminiscent of an Ethiopian hut, and I think it works. You can always take its hat off, and return it to its lair.
