Ok. I like my coffee. A lot. It’s kinda funny if you think about it. I went to a few AA meetings after I woke up one morning with no idea why the man who had promised to love me forever, had tried to kill me. At that point, the doctors were not sure if I would ever be able to see out of my right eye again. (oops, I digress…)
LOL! No, the funny part is this. So, I went to a few AA meetings, right? And since I had promised (God) that I would never drink alcohol again, I was there more for the support and caring that went along with the group, than to get off the booze. But do you know what they DO at those meetings? They give you lots to become addicted to…instead. Like coffee. And cigarettes. Seriously.
Ok. So! We all know how MUCH I love my coffee, right? And you all know how much of the time I spend in the field, guiding Summer Horseback Adventures, Big Game Hunters and Wintertime Excursion Adventurists too. I should really have stock in those little glass bubbles on top of my coffee pots. Lord only knows how many of them I buy a year!
What’s with those little bubble thingys, anyway? I mean, seriously, they are FOR boiling hot coffee to spew up and into, right? So-called tempered glass, that is actually made FOR this purpose, right? I am wondering why mine always break. Crack, shatter (usually into a really good pot of fresh coffee), poof, gone. Back to the trusty tinfoil. (And you DO know how I love my tinfoil!)
So I was pouring myself a cup of coffee this morning and I saw the brand spankin’ new bubble wobble. So I peaked inside at the bubble and what do I see?? I see the bottom third of the bubble sitting on top of the filter. WTH?! I just put that one in! Like…four days ago!
Now I am left wondering if I should just get off the coffee.
