Confession: I’m Unclean!

Okay – weird title. But the truth is – and this is a big one …

I don’t always clean out my coffee cup before filling it up with new coffee at work in the morning.


I’m glad I got that off my chest. For some reason – it feels a little exciting to not completely clean it out. Where does the excitement come from? And why do I catch a cold every other week? Correlation? No way. Or. Maybe.

Have you ever had a coworker who NEVER cleaned their ritualistic coffee cup? I have. The cup is stained and looks like it has really been put through the paces. For me – I use creamer – so I frequently feel compelled to at least rinse the cup. But scrub it? The lines and stains feel like a badge of honor. Hmm.

Folgers Jingle Contest – Best Part of Wakin’ Up.

Something about this makes me want to write my own jingle.  Weird.  Nice job Courtney Reid!

I like coffee. I just like to drink it. Don’t need the fancy stuff – doesn’t need to be foamed or chilled or anything other than regular old medium roasted coffee. Some people really like the dark stuff, and then they pile on the sugar and creamer. I prefer lighter coffee with just a little creamer.

Last night we bought a new coffee maker. Pretty spiffy. It’s actually the most expensive coffee maker I have ever bought (by more than double) but it is a commercial grade, super fast one. We drink enough coffee, and with winter coming, it just seemed like a logical thing to do. Plus, my in-laws get at least 5 years out of theirs, which when you calculate out times the number of pots brewed, it is literally pennies per brew. We are hoping for the same level of success.

So I am excited at how quickly my coffee was ready this morning. I’m glad its hot, quick and delicious and I’m looking forward to Halloween and the rest of the Autumn season.
