And no it wasn’t another vibrator. A girl has got to have some fun outside of the bedroom. A girl has got to be well rounded. A girl has got to be informed about every new kitchen gadget that drops out of the sky. But more importantly a girl has got to have fun! And sometimes getting a new toy is like having an orgasm, only different! Especially if that new toy delivers hot shots of caffeine in minutes flat! I think you know what I’m talking about!
You see and I am admitting it openly here, my coffee sucks! I don’t know why, it just does and no matter how hard I work at it I cannot make the perfect cup. Maybe it’s those stupid scoops or the amount of water I use or the fact that I can’t measure twice and cut once, but it’s gosh darn frustrating, and honestly kind of gross to drink self made swill every morning of the week, unless I treat myself to a Starbucks, which isn’t often because I don’t feel like driving over there!
Enter the age of the in house coffee machine. It hums. It glows blue in the dark. It measures. It decants the perfect cup-o-Joe every single time and it does in seconds flat. Who could ask for anything more? I know this isn’t a new concept and the thing has been hanging around in kitchen stores longer than horny housewives, but I’ve been fighting it! I didn’t want to be hooked into buying “their coffee”. I thought Oh, it’s just another gimmick to get you hooked in and then you’re dumb stuck and what if you can’t find the refills? Holy Hell it was another nightmare in second guessing and stomping my foot down about parting with money!
Was I ever wrong. Sick and tired of measuring, sick and tired of dumping dirty grinds, sick and tired of washing the pot, I did a little research and fell in love with the Keurig. Mostly because it glows blue and has silver accents replete with a star cut-out where I place my cup and watch while it fills it. It’s a miracle of modern technology. Oh and it’s fun to play with, did I mention that? I’ve been playing with it since last night, no, not all night, I’ve got other toys for that!
So here it is:
I think I’ll go fill another cup!
