This is my mug.
This is my only and favourite mug. It’s awesome - when filled with hot water, the TARDIS disappears from the street and reappears on the other side of the mug (in outer space). Members of my household have been using it and putting it in the dishwasher, or scouring it with steel wool to clean it; hence the sides chipping off. This has been a devastating blow to me.
I finally feel like I understand what the companions go through as they watch the TARDIS and the wonderful man inside fade out for the very last time for reasons completely out of their control. The world around seems like its breaking off and falling apart because life just can’t go back to normal after experiencing something so special. I’ve never related to anyone’s experience as much as I do now.
Moral of the story: don’t share and keep your goddamn mug far away from the dishwasher
