House Rule #435

The Poorly Mug shall be used
to facilitate the consumption of LemSip.

The only exception to this rule occurs

for colour-coordinated flower displays.

In this exceptional circumstance
no-one is permitted to be ill
until the end of the display period
which shall be at the discretion of MrsM.

  5. We have a "poorly" bucket in our house... not sure it would be up to the task of holding delicate flower arrangements though.

  8. Please send poorly mug over here as soon as the flowers are out of it. I shall fill it with gin. It couldn't make me feel any worse.

  10. Such cheerful yellow flowers coordinate perfectly with the "poorly mug" and surely no one with that much cheer in their lives would ever dare to feel "poorly" so the mug is safe to perform its alternate function with impunity !
