    Make sure when doing this that the coffee cup is MICROWAVE SAFE. No sense poisoning your friends unnecessarily.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    when you need to serve a cup of revenge? JUST KIDDING! LOL! seriously speaking, if you package these up in 'non-descriptive' cups, you can a have a present ready to give to anyone at any time -- no more forgetting to stop and shop! if you package carefully, they will sit just fine for a while
