First off, Happy Birthday to that ultra special someone!!
One simply does not just talk to me in the morning. It does not happen. Nor will it ever happen. There are people here that have learned that the hard way. There are still others who don’t get it or don’t want to. So when the silent treatment is given, its not to punish, its to protect.
I just fly off the handle too quickly if I am not 100% awake yet.
Enter: Coffee consumption.
This morning though was a tragic error which actually has some comedy to it. So I am writing about it for YOUR ENTERTAINMENT this morning while its still fresh on my mind. As well as in my system.
Let me explain.
I rolled on in, as I do most Monday through Friday mornings and grabbed a coffee cup and poured myself a cup. As I began to add creamer and sugar, I realized that nothing was coming out of the sugar dispenser. Meanwhile saying nothing to anyone and ignoring anyone who was trying to talk to me.
I grabbed the sugar dispenser. I shook it. Nothing came out. I rattled it harder, still nothing came out.
I pounded on the bottom. Nothing!!
So I unscrewed the lid — see where this is going??
I gently gave it a shake and noticed that it seemed like a massive GLOB of sugar that was practically a solid. I carefully tipped it over the top of my coffee cup and gave it a shake.
Measuring solely by the absence of sugar from inside the dispenser, a mass of sugar about four inches from the dispenser fell out of its container and into my coffee cup. It didn’t make a splash or a mess. All of it vanished within the molecular composition of the caffeinated liquid.
I was in trouble.
I grabbed for a spoon to stir it all in. I wasn’t going to waste the coffee. Not with these people watching. If they would see me throwing out the over-sugared coffee they would have had something to say about it…………. for the rest of the day!!
I said nothing and acted like nothing happened. But the spoon that I was stirring wasn’t doing anything. Apparently all of that sugar was already dissolved inside of the coffee.
I guess I won’t need to get the donuts today. The coffee had enough sugar for a month’s worth of Friday morning donuts.
So I feel sorry for anyone that makes contact with me for the next several hours. As well as do I apologize.
This (for others) will probably be a Friday that most will never forget.
I’m not looking forward to the “CRASH” to come later…………….
God Save Us All!!!
