A sad, sad day.


Something tells me that today will be a sad day for me.

I get the feeling that I am going to lose a very dear friend.

No…I’m not psychic.

My friend is groaning in pain over there in the kitchen.

Keeps making popping and moaning sounds.

And I fear it is on it’s way out.

Moving on to a better place.

Like….the dump.

My $10.00 coffee pot is officially dying.

Oh, I’ve known for some time now that it was on it’s way out.

It’s been taking way too long to brew a pot of caffeine goodness for me over the past few months.

Like…at least an hour.

I was willing to put up with the wait.

But this popping and moaning and groaning.

I just can’t handle it.

I mean, it’s either dying or being overly-dramatic about being forced to make yet another pot-o-joe for me.

Either way…I’m not playing this game.

It has served me well over the past 4 years.

Not bad for a cheap-o-matic.

I mean…really…who only spends $10.00 on a coffee pot?

(I do..that’s who)

But I am ok with it…I can part ways with this one.

I can allow it to rest, peacefully within the arms of the landfill for eternity.

oop…I think it just released it’s last breath.

Goodbye my friend.

You have served me well.

I shall enjoy your final gift of coffee goodness and then I will let you go.
