Didn't say it was odd, just why I called it a Mug rather than a Cup. Our SS
travel mugs are 16oz which I use to split a 32oz press pot. My day to day
cup isn't as big since my usual is a 10oz 5+5 Cafe' Crema Americano. (Monet
Starry Night cup) The terms seem to be somewhat synonymous but not quite
with the cup defined as open usually bowl-shaped drinking vessel while mug
defined as cylindrical drinking cup. (Merriam-Webster Online) I tend to
think of mugs as larger than cups but such appears not the case. So the
Cowboy Coffee Mug in question was indeed a Cup but also a member of the Cup
subset Mug since it is cylindrical rather than bowl shaped. So all drinking
mugs are cups while all cups are not mugs. But then again all mugs are not
cups, if you're looking at someone's mug who's drinking from a cup then said
mug isn't a cup, gotta love the English language!:-)

cylindrical:-)

Why did this remind me of high school math?  You know... I square is a
rectangle, but a rectangle isn't necessarily a square, yada yada

is that a cup that's not a mug?)
