My thanks to Company Girl Shawna Attebery, who reminded me that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and requested her all-time favorite Small Thing post. Without further ado, here is "Jug Care:"
Highly prized for their usefulness and beauty, jugs come in all sizes, shapes and colors. Some are round and smooth, while others are sleek and contoured. Many are carried by attractive jug holders that are made especially for them. The holders are particularly handy when the jugs get too heavy to lug around.
Sometimes, jugs are purely functional. They do their job dispensing their contents, and do what they've gotta do without much care for how they look as they carry out their duties.
But all jugs, even the utilitarian ones, are decorative in nature. People with especially nice jugs often display them publicly, while others only take them out for special occasions. The best ones are handled with care, and only by those who have permission of the jug owner.
Jug experts tell us that we should inspect our jugs monthly for unusual changes, like cracks, bumps or lumps that shouldn't be there. Here is a diagram that shows how to do a jug inspection:

Today's Small Thing is to do a Jug Self Exam.
You can take your jugs into the shower to examine them, or you can do a jug exam while laying on your back. It is important to learn what is "normal" for your jugs, so that you can recognize any changes immediately.
I'm no long giving out daily "points," but if I was, I would give 50 knockers today! My, how we would really rack up the points!
We've had a little fun today, but jug cancer is serious business! I'd like to thank Heather, at Quiet Rest for being the original genius of this wonderful Small Thing. Clever girl, she was cleaning her JUICE jugs when inspiration hit :). Thanks, Heather...this might be the most important Small Thing we've ever done.
