8 days and counting. I continue to fight a fierce summer cold and I hope to be on the other side of it very soon. I have consumed copious amounts of coffee to counter my ailments... sweet balm of Gilead.
This morning, I again awoke in a congested stupor, stumbling down the stairs and into the kitchen for my beloved brew. I propped myself up against the kitchen counter and waited... and waited... and waited... but the familiar din of my coffee machine was strangely absent, replaced by an angry hiss.
I retraced my steps in my feeble morning mind. Filter. Coffee. Oh. And then the light bulb. Water! You must add water to make coffee.
It's mornings like these that require a sort of "pre-coffee" just to make coffee. I'm not sure how that would work exactly, but I think someone should look into it.
Now that I've got my fix, I am ready to enjoy a beautifully lazy Saturday with my sweet family. I am beside-myself-giddy that my grocery store has Starbucks coffee on sale for $7.98!!! So first order of business... buy more coffee. And filters. Out of those, too.
Happy weekend, Everybody!!!
