Liquid Inspiration Anew

October 26, 2009

Oh, happy days are here again! *sip*

Yes, after what was the longest week to ten days of my life (it seems now, looking back over it), my coffee pot has been replaced. *sip* Ahhhhhh...

It makes things easier since I've spent the past two days at home with sick kids. Well, the kid today isn't sick like she was yesterday, but she's still coughing up vibrant yellow mucus. Mmmm. I think I'll move on to my next thought before I take another sip of coffee.

What's that? I seem in a better mood? Not swearing so much? Actually somewhat pleasant? Well, it could be the coffee (90%), but it's probably also the two hour nap I took on the couch this morning after putting the boy on the bus and shipping him off to school (10%). And for some strange reason, my wife last night was like, "Are you sure you want to stay home with her today?" Well, honey, it's such a big sacrifice sleeping on the couch and drinking coffee all day, but I think I can make it. It is our wonderful beautiful daughter we're talking about.

So, if you're just sitting there this afternoon and I come busting in and dance you around the room, singing some bawdy sea shanty, you'll know that I really don't mean anything by it. Just smile, shake your head, maybe let a light blush touch your cheeks (I'll leave the decision as to which cheeks up to you) and think, "Oh, that Indefatigable One...he's all full of caffeinated goodness!"

Oh no. I better go. I'm almost to the bottom of this cup. Not to mention, the rest of the pot isn't going to drink itself. Although, if it did, that'd be a sight to behold. Plus, I'd be forced to make some more.

Because I can.

Oh, and by the way...I was wearing a pair of green pants on Saturday. I changed them at halftime, and look what happened!!! Clearly, I need to burn all my green clothes when football season comes around. Which is too bad, because I like wearing them on Thursdays...

Tis the nectar of the gods!

I want that stuff strong enough so when the cups 1/2 empty, it can walk over to the pot and top it off.

There's little more satisfying in life than a good cup of coffee.

And now, I'm just sitting here fantasizing about one.

There should be a 12 step program for people like me. :)

I'll stay home with your kids if it means I get to take naps. And you don't have to worry about me drinking your coffee because I loathe the stuff.

Congrats on your new pot. I am insanely jealous that you are at home on the couch and I'm not sure we can be friends anymore. BUT if you appeared right now in song and dance, I guess I'd still have to like you...

Now we know the secret of what it takes to instantly get you in a good mood. I guess I will be able to determine your coffee intake from the tone of your future posts.

This is the best tribute to snot and coffee.
Ever.
And I love the hovertext today.

I hope the coffee at the bottom of the cup was nice and gloopy, I love gloopy coffee.

And yeah, you do sound exceptionally pleased with yourself today...

Things that make life worth living:

Coffee
Sex
Chocolate
Vodka

Not necessarily in that order.

Glad you are back with the living!

Pearl said...

Coffee. And chocolate. But not chocolate coffee.

sooo jealous about your coffee day. i manage to get through the better part of a pot between 7:30 and 9:15 in the morning, but ohhhh to have the whole day to savor it!

Soda and Candy said...

No good can ever come of green pants.

Also, I was that desperate for caffeine today that I drank a DIET soda. *shudder*

Cool as Folk said...

I could almost feel your caffeinated energy oozing out of my screen.

Coffee, get thee in my belly.

Just returned from three weeks in the country that makes the best coffee ever... Plus, they even know how to advertise it correctly I loved the gigantic print add of the 'lupa' and Romulus and Remus at the Venice Marco Polo airport. Sweeeeet.

Without coffee...there would be murder. Enough said.

Bev said...

I'm with ya! I stayed home with a sicky twice last week (though I was sick too... not nearly as fun) and will do so again tomorrow. It's such a hardship, with or without liquid gold coursing through your veins.

mylittlebecky said...

mmmmm, coooofffeeee! i can't decide if it's too late to have a cup now... until morning i guess.

Ummmmmmmmmmm.....coffeeeeeeee.......

I found myself drinking black coffee this weekend...twice. I always have to add a little foo-foo to mine...but was without. So black it was.
