How hard can it be?

October 1, 2007

I drink coffee every morning. I make my own coffee most mornings...even though I wish somebody else would make it for me as I love to just grab a cup and pour :) It just seems so thoughtful. Anyhow....
I can't tell you how many times I go into the kitchen, assuming my coffee is done perking and find that I am a total ding-dong...AGAIN! I have made coffee the wrong way more times than I have the RIGHT way. So this morning I went into the kitchen, CERTAIN that I smelled it brewing in there, beckoning me and yet I found the pitcher full of clear water though I did remember to put the coffee in. I guess I forgot to pour the water in before I started the pot :P But last week I started the coffee pot and went in to grab my wake-up juice, Tim right behind me, when I found clear water in the pot again! I was so confused! I opened the lid to find that I had only put a filter in coffee. Tim had a good laugh over this. He is curious to know how many ways I can botch up the coffee-making process. Thus far I have screwed up this simple procedure of 3 or so steps at least FIVE times. It just goes to show that my mind really doesn't work properly before the caffeine is ingested. In fact, I am blaming all of my misspelled words on no coffee as I am waiting for it to finish brewing right now.
