No-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!!!!


It was late. I had been falling asleep on the couch watching TV. I made myself get up - check the locks on the doors - go in the kitchen and make sure everything is taken care of - oh look - I forgot to take care of the coffee pot --- went to empty the grounds in the kitchen garbage and I missed. Yep - all over the floor - lost count of how many paper towels it took to clean up. Went to bed.

I think I would have smashed to coffee pot too if that had happened to me!

RC - Fortunately just the grounds were in my hands!!! And I like my coffee in the morning too much to risk losing all!!!

If you worked in my office and this happened in the break room, I believe the protocol would be for you to just walk away and pretend it didn't happen. Of course, spilled coffee grounds are much harder to ignore in your own kitchen.

Terri - I always washed the pot out at work and made the coffee (because I had my own standards of cleanliness and strength of coffee) and one time I let the pot sit there to see if anyone would clean it - I was stopping at Bojangles to get my coffee - mold grew on the coffee and still no one washed it out!!!!

I hate it when that happens! It always seems to happen when I am most tired, have had the longest day, and the smallest amount of patience.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner about the coca-cola cake. I think the cake would be just as good without the icing because it almost has a brownie-like texture but the icing really is the icing on the cake :) Hope you are having a good week!
