Once upon a pleasant spring morning, I was cruising to work in the bike lane, sipping on some delicious coffee from the OG Coffee Brake Mug version 1. Ahhh, life was good ... until out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a lady walking a big old Rottweiler with a wide stance. No sooner did I notice the dog, than he cocked his head to the side to see me riding up behind him. In an instant he broke free from his handler and charged for me with his teeth bared. The lady screamed, “BARNEY!”
Out of some combination of fear and instinct, I yelled, “NO!” and swung my mug, connecting with a solid “CLUNK” to the flat part of his head. The dog let out a yelp and backed right off, giving his owner an opportunity to grab the leash.
I reached my destination unscathed, refilled my Coffee Brake Mug and restarted the day.
In a pinch, the Coffee Brake Mug can save your life, or at least your meaty calf muscle. Don’t leave home without it!
