Take a sip from a mug. See that little drop? What is that?

I hate to do this to you all, but I have to know.

Okay, so I have a mug of coffee. Nice and hot and delicious. I take a sip of the coffee. When I take my lips away from the mug, there is a little drop of coffee on the outside rim of the mug. No matter how I contort my lips during or after the sip, I cannot take a sip of coffee without leaving that little drop.

It is driving me crazy. Why is this? Am I doing it wrong? Does it happen to you? Would it happen if the mug were square?
