Proof I should not do anything before my morning coffee


What is going on in this picture?

Well, my husband usually makes the coffee in the mornings, but he was out of town for a few days last week, and the night he got back it was really late, so the next morning I let him sleep in, and I made the coffee. And apparently 3 days in a row of making coffee is more than I can bear.


On this 3rd day of making coffee by myself, I measured the water, poured it in the maker, measured the grounds and added them (even remembered a coffee filter), and hit "brew".

But I FORGOT TO PUT THE CARAFE IN THE COFFEE MAKER.

Coffee overflowing onto the counter, into the drawer, down the cabinet, onto the floor at 7AM -- Good times!

And proof positive that either I'm really not cut out for this homemaker gig or I really should not do anything before I drink a cup of coffee in the morning.

Actually, I think this picture proves both are true!


Check out more Wordless or Wordful Wednesday.

  21. (I came here from last week's WfMW and thought I'd see what you have to Point and Laugh at!)

    I totally sympathize with the feeling that you need coffee before you can make the coffee! Long ago, when we first got a coffee maker instead of drinking instant, one morning I went to put in the water and thought, "But I just put the coffee in there"--in the water reservoir!! I had to drink instant coffee and then take apart the coffee maker with a screwdriver.

    But the only time I had a disaster like yours, it was IN AN OFFICE WHERE I HAD JUST STARTED WORKING. So embarrassing!!
