A little while ago, I made my morning coffee as usual. Usual, by the way, is filling the water line to just above 4 cups and adding 3 Tablespoons of grounds to the basket in case anyone is interested.

Anyhow, I came upstairs to get dressed then remembered that my pants were down in the dryer. Following Kim logic, I decided to sit at the computer for a bit since I was upstairs anyhow.

By the time I went back down 10 minutes or so later, I smelled my coffee and thought "Hot diggity, I can start my first cup while I'm getting dressed!!" and proceeded to enter the kitchen to fulfill my fantasy.

Instead of a beautiful dark-brown lake of coffee steaming away in the pot, I found coffee-ground soup. Euch!! I forgot to push the pot in all the way and the sometimes-faulty Pour-a-cup feature had kept most of the coffee up in the basket.

I dumped the entire thing into the sink and phoned Liam, repeating over and over again "My coffee, my coffee!!!". He understood.

My coffee maker has now had a bath and a new pot is (hopefully) successfully brewing. I don't know how much more trauma I can handle this morning.

Poor thing. You should have called - I could have picked up a Roll up the Rim.

Jo said...

Thats coffee abuse Kim. I'd be careful or else I'll report you. :)

Such a waste of perfectly good caffeine...aaah, the good always die too young, don't they?

KimProbable said...

I apologize to all the coffee drinkers. I knew I'd get some sympathy by posting this story, but hopefully I haven't traumatized all of you too much.

Vixen: Liam actually suggested that I head out to Timmy's, but with all three of us still in our pj's and Lily still in bed, home-made coffee sounded pretty darn good. I would most certainly have accepted a Roll up the Rim, though.

Jo: You posted a comment finally. Yay!! :P

Clifford: Since the coffee didn't even technically make it to the pot, would it be classified as a coffee-miscarriage d'you suppose?

Shiny Beamer said...

that was such a sad story.

Liam J. said...

Which begs the question. When does coffee stop being beans and water and start being coffee?

Jo said...

Well it takes a serious post such as this to draw a comment out of me :D

Baron Von Cliff said...

Liam, do we truly wish to bog this whole blog down in a moral debate which could divide this group on a permanent basis?

Cause, I mean, I'm game if we do.

Sean Woods said...

I wonder what Pat Robinson's take on this is...

Liam J. said...

Who is Pat Robinson?

Baron Von Cliff said...

He's Christian Fundamentalist loudmouth #1. the one who said we may as well blow away Hugo Chavez, and that Ariel Sharon had a stroke because he dared give God's land to those brown folk in the keffiyehs.

Sean Woods said...

Don't forget that god punished New Orleans with a hurricane.

I believe he was also the one that claimed a member of the Teletubbies was homosexual / promoted a homosexual lifestyle.

Jo said...

I like how you can go from coffee to homosexual lifestyles in just a few lines.

KimProbable said...

Does that say something about the kind of people who comment on my blog? Hmm....

Baron Von Cliff said...

No, it was his faithful lieutenant Jerry Falwell who went off on the purple Teletubby. However, Sir Pat was the one that said 9/11 was brought about because God was angry at all the gay sex in New York.

Just curious, Kim, but how often DO you lament the fact that Liam's friends came along as part of the whole Liam package?

KimProbable said...

Let's just say that it's less often than Liam feared.

Baron Von Cliff said...

I'm betting it's less often than Liam himself wished his friends didn't come along as part of the package.

Man, that came across as quite morose. I apologize. Wasn't intended that way.

And, besides, if I AM right, who can blame the guy? Really?
