Weeks later I was still thinking about that beautiful, sleek-looking coffee brewer. I even looked it up online and discovered that it brews different sizes of cups, is available in red, and has two different types of carousels to hold all the little coffees. I thought about how cute it would look on my counter top and how much fun it would be to twirl that little carousel and look at all those different little K-cups. I could name it Katie (that's what I would have named my third daughter if I'd had one), but no, Katie Keurig sounded too much like Katie Couric and I'm too much of a political conservative to be reminded of her each day. Beginning to sound like an obsesssion?.
I think so. Because you see, the problem with all this is I DON'T DRINK COFFEE!!! Now I tried to justify this obsession with the fact that it also brews tea and hot chocolate. But, I don't drink hot tea and I only drink lowfat, sugar-free hot chocolate which isn't available in the K-cups. I did think about how much my husband would enjoy having me fix it for him. But really, he only drinks coffee on Saturday and Sunday mornings and downs a whole pitcher in about 30 minutes. Oh, and did I also mention that I'm extremely practical and even on vacaction I only buy gifts for myself that are functional? Hence, my big collection of cookbooks, my rolling pin from Silver Dollar City (who buys a rolling pin when everyone else on the trip is buying jewelry?), and a jar of molasses from some little town in Tennessee.
so it wouldn't be lonely!
And now of course, the only way my practical side will ever relax and let me enjoy this thing is by frequent use. So don't be surprised when you walk in my door and the first words out of my mouth are..."Can I fix you a cup of nice, hot coffee, tea or hot chocolate?"
Thanks again, sweet Gina, for understanding!
