For the love of God someone please get me a magic bullet or a blender.
Yesterday I was thirsty and needed caffeine for a headache.
I was at Target. The target has a Starbucks.
I thought ‘cool’ Ill get a coffee. But I was thirsty and hot liquids aren’t good for thirst. Thus I ordered a blended coffee frap thing. I also ordered a cup of water – just tap water – no ice – I sucked that down while the guy made my frozen coffee. The guy handed me my frozen treat and I took a sip – delicious!
I left target and opened my driver’s side door. Sadly my beverage holders where all occupied with old pop cans and a travel mug (we shall not speak of this). I set my tasty treat on the edge of my van next to the seat nearest the door. I left the door open. Then I turned to put my groceries in the back seat.
You know whats coming but let me finish.
The darn wind blew my driver’s side door closed. I heard a crunch.
I opened the door to find my tasty treat safe and sound except the cup a little squished. I bent to pick it up and in that split second it crashed to ground – upside down. All my frozen coffee goodness was splattered on the pavement. I won’t lie – for a nano second I considered pulling a Joey from friends and scooping the top of the frozen pile back into my cup. Don’t worry I didn’t.
Fast forward to just 10 minutes ago. I was thirsty. I need caffeine. I don’t want a hot beverage. I thought – shoot I can make a blended coffee – no problem.
I poured left over morning coffee into a 6 inch high Braun cup (the same one I use to make smoothies). I added a dash of sugar and a splash of milk. Then I added a hand full of ice cubes.
I put the Braun mixer wand into the cup and envisioned the tasty treat I was about to enjoy.
I pressed the button to begin the sweet blending process.
My counter and wall are now covered in sticky coffee with a side of milk.
Clearly I am not at my best today.
*early today I exploded two hard-boiled eggs in the microwave. Do not try to reheat hard-boiled eggs (even if they are peeled) in the microwave – I had egg shrapnel everywhere.
*please do not send me a blender or magic bullet unless your name is Chad and you love me.
This is what happens when I stay up till after 3am and get up at 6:30.

The visuals on all of this truly have me laughing.. but MAN do I feel ya. I hate those days when I need coffee before I can even MAKE the coffee.
I like it when I remember to set it up the night before and put it on auto brew. Those are sweetass days.
I’ve had those days. There is no use crying over spilled milk, but crying over spilled coffee is perfectly acceptable
I don’t know whats worse – the cost of so much wasted coffee, the lack of coffee to consume, or the mess I had to clean up. I think the combination was just too much for my brain that day. Luckily the days since have been uneventful – mostly.
Oh no!!!! I’m hoping your coffee and eggs go much better tomorrow. 😦
Thanks Karen – the next day was better and I haven’t had any more quite as frustrating since. It seems to come in waves.
Oh no! Coffee overboard! Twice! 😦 I empathize.
What if you have a different Chad out there that does love you? What if I change my name to Chad for a week, granted I like you a lot. Don’t know if I love you yet.
LOL – Well there is a 50/50 chance you’ll love me after florida. In my experience people love me or hate me.
Christina, Thank you so much for visiting my blog, Chronicles Of A Dystonia Muse. I well know those kinds of days, when nothing seems to go right. If it’s any consolation, I’m an inveterate tea kettle burner, I always seem to forget to pull down that whistle. -Pamela-
You write well and provide great information and stories. Been there done that with the tea kettle. That habit ended eventually because I never seem to have time to wait for the kettle so I just microwave water. (my British friends are cringing right now) I added your blog to my blog roll (don’t get too excited I don’t have a whole lot of readers – but its there and if a few people click it and learn Im happy) Loved your ‘Show Up for the PArty” post. See ya around the blogosphere. Cheers.
