2 Carat Mug
"Aw, honey! What a thoughtful Mother's Day gift! It's... a giant gaudy ring! In an unusually large box. You shouldn't have, dear. You really, really shouldn't have. Thank you...?"
"Shucks, Mom. You're not even gonna open the rest of the curiously large box? More Mother's Day surprises await!"
"There's more? Well, let's see here... Oh, my heavens! It's not a gaudy ring at all, but a beautifully crafted porcelain mug! What a nice surprise! Good thing, too, 'cause that ring is ugly as sin. There's no way I'd be able to show my face at the bridge club wearing something like that. I'll get the coffee brewing this instant!"
