The Coolest Gift. EVAR.

Anyone ever tell you mama knows best? Believe it.
I have had a Star Wars bathroom cup since 1999 when Phantom Menace came out. It's been kind of a family joke. Well the cup started to leak this year and it had definitely seen better days. My birthday was in February and I challenged my family to find me a new one.
My wife came up with an Episode 3 cup, bowl and plate set (like something you would buy for a five year old). A respectable showing and a worthy replacement.
Her mother came up with a tumbler style cup with an Episode 4 style Obi-Wan Kenobi action figure. Step UP!
Then my mother trumped them all this evening in a way that only she could. She bought me (on eBay or some thing for $12 (!!!)) the exact same bathroom cup I had as a very young child. It turns out it was like a $1 item from McDonald's :
Easily the best birthday present I have ever received!
