Coffee Makes the World Better
For those of you who know me, even minutely, know that me and coffee have to be like peas in a pod or the world is NOT happy. Sadly, 3 days before payday, I RAN OUT! I scrambled up enough change to get Mt. Dew for the first day and that was ok. I survived and did not kill anyone and it was a great substitute….for that one day. The second day, I had about an inch left of the Mt. Dew (Yes, I went through almost the whole 1.5 litre the day before!) and I tried to save that until I absolutely needed it. By then it was flat and flat sodas are nasty. I still choked it down.
Enter random daily text messages from dear Hubby.
**Snort** **Growl** **Bite** **Draw Blood** All the while I am at WORK and you know that at work, Micaa has to play nice because she talks on the phone for a living! Yes, it was a near impossible feat but I survived it and no, there are no pending criminal charges. So, work was ok. People tore my nerves to kingdom come but I didn’t curse anyone out and we were relatively busy so I didn’t have time to contemplate destroying the universe due to lack of caffeine. This, I tell you, is a great service my job provided to the world! (Yes, I digressed, here we go.) I was very snappy in my text messages to my love. I had to take a break and go tell him. “Look, sorry I am not being very nice. I have no coffee. No creamer. AND no soda! So yes, I am grouchy.” I did not want to alarm the children so I had walked out of my office and directly to dear Hubby and whispered that in his ear.
Know what he did? He started to belly laugh. The more I tried to explain my terrible attitude, the more he laughed. I gave him that joy. He needed a good laugh and he sure got it. He did tell me “WHY didn’t you tell me!!! I have a coupla bucks! I could have brought you a soda when I came in from work this morning! You surely didn’t have to suffer like that!” (-.-) ß THAT was my reply.
When I got off work, we went and purchased coffee and creamer yesterday. J
I got a BIG can so I won’t have this problem EVER EVER again.
Fast forward to 3 a.m. this morning.
Per my usual routine, I go to make my beloved coffee (after brushing my teeth of course…you NEVER want to smell your morning breath before coffee. Blech!) and I got the filter cup….opened the cabinet…pulled the lid off the can… and OH…..MY…..GAWD…..the smell of pure heaven! I inhaled the scent ever so deeply and announced to the dark kitchen (yes, only the light of the fish tank illuminated my surroundings) “That smells soooo good! I just want to stick my face in it!!!” Happily, I went on about my day. When it was finally done brewing, that first sip was like nothing else! I. feel. So. Much. Better!
Later in the morning, I told our daughter what I said. She looked at me like O.o. “Did you have your usual little can? You can’t stick your face in the little can mom.” To which my giddy reply “No my dear, I had the big can so I honestly could have stuck my face in it if I wanted to!” Here comes the peanut gallery filled with dear Hubbys’ voice “Oh yes! I could see mommy sticking her face into the can eating coffee grounds. Imagine it daughter! Bwahahahaha!”
There you go, everyone got a great laugh at my pain and suffering. However family, you DO sleep when I get up as I get up during the time the rest of the world calls “ungodly.” Remember that when you go to bed tonight and beware!!!!
You all will sleep sometime…..when you wake…I will be caffeinated and IN YOUR FACE! You will hate me so much but you think about that when you laugh at my uncaffinated state next time. Mmmmkay?
What do YOU think?
