When She’s Right, She’s Right

May 11, 2022

This morning L’s Mother greeted me with a cheery, “Good morning!” before noticing the mug in my hand, the mug I only use with the coffee maker.

“Oh,” she said. “That’s not your ‘good morning’ mug!”

There’s No Shame In Using A Crutch When Something Is Broken

March 15, 2022

Now is the time of year here when I drink coffee so I can breathe and function through the all the pollen in the air. Does that mean I’m using coffee as a crutch?


I Did Eventually Say It Once I Could Say It While Laughing AND Getting An Understanding Laugh From Them In Return

February 27, 2020

As I predicted, I do feel better today, and I’m still chuckling at one particular moment from yesterday:

The moment where after making a fresh pot of coffee I stopped myself from telling the adults of the house (who had drank my previous pot of coffee) that “The coffee is fresh because you’re a [Insert Dire Insult Here].”

I Think I Deserved It

1st Cup Thought:  I’ll just have one cup of coffee this morning.

Because At That Temperature I’m Surprised It Wasn’t Just A Cup Of Steam!

Maybe Even Less

Today I read that somebody calculated that you could heat up a cup of coffee if you shouted at it constantly for around a year and a half.

I’m pretty sure we all know people that easily do that in half the time.

I May Be Asking Others For Help Later Today Though

Some day I’m going to learn to set aside my excessive pride and just ask for help first when I need help.  Today I practiced this by asking coffee for some help.

After Two Cups Full, I Was Ready To Go!

August 9, 2017

(No, the news isn’t cheery of late.  I’m not in denial . . . I’m being obstinate!)

Today I discovered that doing without morning coffee isn’t so bad when you substitute it with morning cookies provided you keep the doses the same.
