Last night my wife and I were watching a disc we got from Netflix. I was sitting in my recliner, with a cat sound asleep on my lap, when she got up to go to the kitchen. Seeing her heading that direction, I held up my empty coffee cup and asked if she’d mind getting me a refill – so I wouldn’t have to wake the cat.
She wanted to know what she should put in it, and I responded with “something hot, brown, and wet.”
Then SHE asked me if I meant Zoe Saldana or Halle Berry.
I really should have just said “coffee”. Besides, even if they were willing, neither one of them would fit in my coffee cup.
It is entirely possible, based on recent research, that coffee is the single best source of antioxidants in the modern diet. Read more here:
Yep, it’s one of those days.
I woke up at 4am (0400 for non-USA people), needing to go to the bathroom. Expecting to get up at about 5am anyhow, I turned on the furnace to pre-heat the house (it was off overnight), and stumbled into the kitchen with my eyes half-open to turn on the coffee pot. I thought there was still one or two cups of coffee in it, and this would have the coffee nice and warm when I got up later.
Then I went back to bed. At 7am, my wife shakes me and says she’s getting ready to leave for work. Oh, by the way, did I know that the coffee pot was empty when I turned it on? The whole kitchen now smells like burned coffee. Fortunately, it didn’t actually break the pot.
