Saved by the Thermos

It's Sunday, and that means flea market here in Brooklyn. I've been helping out with my friend's booth there for a few weeks now, and this one is dawning to be as gray (but still enjoyable) as the rest- all thanks to one of the best inventions ever, the thermos. According to thermos.com, the venerable vessel been around since 1904.

This one isn't quite as attractive as the bright yellow Bee Gees one I had in my lunchbox growing up, but at least it's a little cleaner and doesn't smell like stale Saltines. It's now full of Assam (an Indian black tea), and along with a nice chunky bar of chocolate from Barcelona, ready to keep me defrosted throughout the day.
