DECAF and wonder creams!

Yesterday when I got home from a long hard day at work, I found a pot of coffee waiting for me on the Bunn-Omatic.  Graciously I thanked whoever had made it and poured myself a large cup.  Something was missing though.  It looked like coffee, it smelled like coffee, but all I could taste was the hazelnut creamer.  I didn't make it half way through the cup, I just couldn't drink it.  Art later disclosed that Rocky had intended to heat up some hot water for cocoa, and poured water into the Bunn-Omatic, but had forgotten to dump the basket of coffee grounds that was still in there from the morning... so the water ran through the grounds again.  She figured that since it looked like regular coffee that she would save it for me.  Only problem with that is all the caffeine goes out with the first brew!  In fact, when my kids want coffee I'll intentionally reuse the grounds so they don't get the full dose of caffeine.  Art knew this... and he said nothing!  Devil Child!  He just wanted to see if I would notice!  I'm telling you folks, I've got a full blown addiction here, don't try to stiff me with the phoney, poofy stuff!

I've got all kinds of wonder creams in my bathroom.  There's Oil of Olay, Night of Olay, exfoliants, astringents, toners, masks, moisturizers, you name it, I got it.  Rocky asked me once why I have all that stuff.  Well, cos I want to be young and beautiful I replied.  She shook her head sadly and informed me that it the treatments weren't working.  "Well, sure they are... just imagine how bad I'd look if I DIDN'T use them!"

Very funny.  I thought of you today when I saw a bunch of "cocoa" beauty products at the store.

At least she thought she was doing something good. I don't blame you tho. When I drink coffee I want the real stuff.
I have all those creams too. I agree with you , just what would we look like if we didn't use them.

hee hee hee....DH is ALWAYS telling me 'Just reuse the grounds...it'll taste just like it did the first time!' and I'm always saying 'No, it doesn't!  Do NOT insult me by trying to tell me it does!'  LOL...I'll be dragging him into the computer room and waving your journal entry in his face..."You see?!  You see?!"  LOL...I KNOW my coffee....  <g>
