Christmas '10 - Christmas '12
May She Rest In Peace
At first I thought my Keurig was protesting my attempts at making my life less dependent on caffeine. "Decaf coffee?! Are you shitting me? I will spray grounds all over this counter if you try that crap."
Yes, I assume my Keurig has a potty mouth. She is a bitter bitter woman.
After four fruitless attempts at convincing Miss K to brew me some decaf, I stuck in a decidedly more delicious smelling pod of regular, and she spit back out a nice cup of coffee. Whew. Crisis averted.
I cleaned her up and she seemed to appreciate the effort. It was just like old times. She made me a few more pods of regular coffee. She spit out another attempt at a decaf (hey, it was a different brand, I wanted to test the theory!!!), and I cleaned her again.
Apparently it was the straw that broke the camel's back. She is now only brewing half-cups of regular, and no cups of decaf. I haven't even TRIED to make cocoa. I know that would set her off.
I can't blame her. We have abused her for many years now. On the weekends we sometimes brew 4 or 5 cups in a day. (Yes, its ridiculous, yes, we should brew a whole pot, sometimes we can't think clearly at 8 am)
So today I am enjoying a very strong half-cup of regular coffee. Probably a good thing, because Little Man is sick again and has serious coughing and sinus problems that have had me up since 6:45 AM. I'm trying desperately to stay healthy, but it probably means I'll be sick again too. All three of us have our flu shots now though so hopefully we're going to dodge that bullet. -_-
I better go enjoy my coffee. A half-cup stays warmer significantly less time than a full cup.
