Ode de Coffee

I got home from Dallas only to realize I was out of coffee. Out.Of.Coffee.

Not exactly a warm welcome home, let me tell you.

So Thursday night I stopped at a Wal-Mart on the way home to pick up some java and a couple other little "treats".

I got home and wasn't really feeling all that great. I figure just overly tired. So I went ahead and set the coffee for the next morning. I'm very ritualistic so, as always, I placed the bag-o-beans on the counter next to the pot.

Now I must add that I didn't sleep well that night. Not at all. I was probably up and in the kitchen half dozen times getting a drink of water.

Finally around 4:00 I drifted off to lala land. Woke up a bit late and rushed into the kitchen to slam a cup of that nector as I readied.

Only to find a counter covered in coffee. And the pot sitting next to the machine.

Yet again, I forgot to actually replace the pot so the coffee has somewhere to rest. Coffee Everywhere.

So I pick up the bag-o-beans only to realize it soaked through. Now I've got coffee AND beans everywhere.

I'm not wasting this. No way. No how.

So I get a big spoon and salvage what I can. Place the bowl on the counter, clean up the rest and then rush to get out the door to work.

Fast forward to Friday night. I'd had a busy day, and after the lack of sleep wasn't really "on" as it were. I walk in the door and take a deep breath only to realize something doesn't smell quite right. What is it? What is it?

Shit. It's the coffee beans on the counter.

Basically I just paid $9 for a bowl of potpourri and a pot of coffee.
