This is the 2nd oldest oompa, Zachary.  He likes living dangerously.  He has a death wish.   For the 3rd day in a row he has unplugged the Bunn-Omatic Brew-Omatic so that he could plug in his computer, and then forgot to replace the coffee pot plug when he was finished.  I even reminded him last night when I saw him on the computer... I warned him to plug the coffee pot back in and he assured me that he would remember.


This morning I woke up to a cold Bunn!  There's nothing worse than to get up at 3am on a cold November morning and discover that your Bunn is cold!  It would take 20 minutes to heat the reservoir up before a fresh pot of coffee could be brewed.  20 minutes is a long time to be without coffee on a cold November morning.  The mind can think of many creative and painful schemes for revenge against the one who would make it wait 20 minutes for a cup of coffee on a cold November morning.

Zachary has two options:  buy a power strip so he can plug his computer and monitor in without unplugging my Bunn, or play Coffee Roulette and risk learning first hand just exactly what my caffeine deprived mind thought up this morning while waiting 20 minutes on this cold November morning for my Bunn to heat up.

Evil little Oompa Loompa!

UPDATE:  After composing this entry in my test journal, I took Zack down to the store to get the power strip for the kids computer, and while we were there, he bought me... not 1 but 2 boxes of truffles!  Okay, maybe I layed on the guilt trip a little bit.  And maybe I mentioned truffles more than 20 times during our shopping trip, but that doesn't matter.  What matters is that I have 2 boxes of Russell Stover's elegant gourmet truffles.

Sweet little Oompa Loompa!

I somehow ended up with a picture in my mind of poor Zach pitching you truffles, which you ate while walking restlessly around your Bunn waiting for it to heat up <LOL>

What a good boy!  You are raising them right, Jody!  Of course, he never should have unplugged the coffee making Bunn, but he is of the male persuasion and that does give him a little bit of a handicapp!  LOL

be well,

ps... Didn't you mention once that Zachary may be joining the military too?  Or am I confusing him with someone else....

 My sister lives in Hawaii where they recently had an earthquake.  The one thing she kept talking about was the missing cup of coffee she enjoyed in the morning.  She walked down to the starbucks to see about getting a cup and of course they had no power also.  Priorities, LOL.  Don't make us Anderson's go without our coffee.  Nice looking son there by the way.

Is that one box for past transgressions, and one box for future items?

LOL!  Proof positive that guilt, when used properly, can be a good thing!

deslily said...

it's always good to be on the receiving end of the guilt trip!    If he'd like to feel guilty about "auntie DesLily" tell him I like Russel Stovers French Mints! LOL

gifdude said...

lol..well, I am not a coffee drinker, so I don't know the pain of not having coffee.

But I am a soda drinker and I know that I need it at least once a day lol
