Can a mug contain hot tea? Yes, it may contain the liquid but can never take its steam. The steam always has a way of rising above the liquid into the air. Such that if you put your cup of hot tea on a table and don’t tell anyone whether you are having a hot or cold beverage, they know without your telling. What a way to announce oneself, eh?
My daughter sure knows how to persistently ask for something. Once she set her eyes on anything she wants, she would barrage you with a truckload of ‘pleases’. Even after I say, I’ll give you that later, she never forgets. She would leave for a while and come back again later to ask of you what she wants. Just yesterday, she asked me to give her a crayon and I said to her, “I’ll give you later, you just finish eating.” After eating, she came back and asked for it again and again and again till I left what I was doing to give her THE crayon.
