Watching the Disaster (Credit: Mister Disaster)
This morning. Disaster of all disasters! I was very upset, almost too upset to post but I'll (sniffle) get through. Now.
I have the day off. We have plans to head into Boston, see Ovo this evening, dinner in town etc. I mentioned all this earlier in the week. On top of that, last night we saw my neighbor's band perform, raising money for another friend's Pan-Mass challenge. The band was excellent, the night a lot of fun.
So this morning I woke up a little later than usual. Why not? Got home late, no work today. I feed Bandit, let him out. I then go to make coffee. I grind the beans, pour in the water, put on the switch. Nothing. I thought well maybe the plug was pulled out. Chris sometimes does that instead of just shutting it off. No. I unplug, replug, re-switch. At this point the panic is rising. I've got to have my coffee! I frantically click the switch over and over.
Finally I succumb to the disaster. The machine has been acting up the last couple of days. It had been shutting off after only being on for a short time. I head upstairs, get my wallet and head out to the local coffee shop.
Today's must do: Get a new coffeemaker.
