Question of the Day: 32

How long could YOU leave a cup sitting in your garage before you decide that it's no longer fit for its original purpose (i.e., drinking out of?)

There's a coffee cup in my garage that I must have taken out of the car and then set down on a shelf in the garage, for some reason. Then I just ... never picked it up and brought it in. So now, it's been there maybe two years and I saw it the other day when I was thinking, briefly, about whether I should pack away the now-deflated Giant Rudolph and other decorations. When I noticed it, I thought: I should bring that in and put it in the dishwasher. Then I thought: no, that's gross. Then I was going to throw it away, but that seemed wasteful.

So I left it there.
