er, that’s what I meant.

A few days ago, I was at a conference and was getting coffee at the little continental breakfast table.  As I was adding my Mini Moos, the woman next to me, in her 60s, commented,

“I should have brought my mug from my room.”

I agreed, fingering my styrofoam cup.  “Yes, you just feel more civilized drinking out of a real cup.”

The lady sort of laughed, paused, then said, “I was thinking of the environment.”

Oh.  Right.

    The question is, did she feel bad enough about the potential damage to the environment to go back to her room and get her mug?
