X cup. (Cue spooky music.)
Please note the large X. I found out one should not place this cup in the microwave. The large X is sort of crackly looking and not as glossy as it once was...
I heated up some tea water. Suddenly, the X started throwing bright blue arcs from the surface to the top of the microwave.
This is a most excellent way of challenging your vocabulary, to come up with just the right panicked swear words, while hitting almost every button on the front of the microwave. It's also guaranteed to make Husband run into the room, wondering if you had managed to cut off an arm, or something equally disastrous.
He will then scowl, and give you a minor lecture on the fact that if it looks like metal, it is most probably a good idea not to put it in the microwave. He will then check the microwave to see if it still works. It does.
(But to this day, I wish I had a photo of the arcs coming off of the cup, it would have been sooo cool for my inner geek. I mean, it IS an X Files cup...)
