Wrong Kind of Wake-Up

Posted 2009.04.11 8.03 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

So I drag myself out of bed, bleary-eyed, and assemble the ingredients for coffee, just like every morning. Scoop in the magic powder, add a dusting of sweetener, pour in the boily water, then top with milk. Then ‘accidentally spill’ a few drops of milk to keep the Misha happy.

Blearily I get back to the living room, sit down to read my email and sip my coffee, it’s the morning routine.

That first sip of the morning…Mmmmmbleaaaaarrrrggghhh!  Why are there chunky floaty lumpies in my coffee!?  Ssssppiittttooooeeeeeyyyyy!

So I sit, contemplating the mug for a minute or two. It was like someone mixed oatmeal in with my coffee when I wasn’t looking. It was yucky. Dare I try another sip?

No, I do not. I’m now quite awake. Blech.

Now I am suspicious of my coffee, my milk, and my kitchen in general. Were there buggies in my coffee? Lumpies in my milk? Some creepy crawly in my water? Something residing in my mug?

    Try again. The coffee is worth it.

    Ok I tried again, I made another coffee for lunch.
    I’m not positive, but I suspect my milk is bad. I hate that because when you buy it, all you know is the date on the carton. You don’t know if it has spent the past 4 days properly refrigerated, or if they just found that carton behind the furnace. So you don’t know till you get a mouth full of mealy chunks if its good or bad.
    They need to make some sort of little thing you can use to test milk – like a litmus strip or some sort of electronic gizmo, that you dip in milk and it changes colour or beeps or something, so you know if milk is good or bad.


    Milk should NEVER have ‘mealy chunks’ – bleeeearghhhhh!
