It’s the thought that counts.
I don’t know what the thought was, except “what can I get that costs under $.99? Hobby Lobby has a special on paint-it-yourself ceramics? Awesome! I still have the marker I used to write “MOM” on a coffee mug in may, go me!”
The only thing sadder would be actually buying this. Because it would still cost $.99.
If your father has a strong sense for irony, well, maybe this is better than a tie. Which also costs $.99 at Goodwill, and you also probably won’t want to eat off of it.
