RANDOMOUS PART 2 (nope, its still not a word)

Coffee Mate has a new flavor of creamer out.  Its called Blueberry Cobbler.  It smells luscious.  It tastes luscious straight out of the container.

The quickest way to ruin a perfectly good cup of Folgers is to put a couple of scoops of Coffee Mate Blueberry Cobbler creamer in it.  Dang!  There's got to be something that stuff would be good in/on... it smells and tastes soooooooo good!  (just not in coffee!)

Something wicked this way comes.

Something wicked came to my drain at work and died, and now I'm stuck with the smell.  I spent the morning blaming it on various truckers and vendors.  The gassy ones are embarrassed because they really think it might be them.  The innocent ones are embarrassed because they think everyone thinks its them.  I know its the drain, but its more fun this way.  Have you ever seen a grown man blush?  Have you ever seen 5 grown men blush all on the same day?

It really does smell like an overdue Pamper.  I may have to arrange a meeting with the Rotorooter man.  I hope he's as fun as the Orkin man whom I call 'Ratman' and sing the 'Batman' jingle to every time he pays us a visit.  (Poor guy, I think he dreads coming to my store.  Hehehehe.)

I did the unthinkable this morning.  I couldn't find any socks in the dark so I went to work with out any.  As I sit here typing my nose is positively freaking out.  With socks, Becca says my feet smell like nachos after a full day of work.  Without socks they smell like my drain at work. Phewwwwwwwww!

I wonder if Coffee Mate Blueberry Cobbler creamer tastes good on vanilla ice cream.

I once got dressed in the dark, and went to work with mismatched shoes.  They were both the same color--thank God.  Julie :)

I had a scone recipe that called for hazelnut creamer.  You used the liquid creamer instead of the milk you might add.  And since you are in scone mode this week...!  The recipe was through Taste of Home which you could check their website for it!

I used to put chocolate whipped topping on blueberries, hmmm wonder if the creamer would taste good on a chocolate muffin broken up into a dish and poured on? As for the smell in the drain, when did you notice it? Hopefully not when you went without socks LOL! (Hugs) Indigo

That does sound good, the coffee thing, not the feet. Lol....Sandi

Yeah, I agree that berries and coffee... just do not mix!  Green mountain had a spring blueberry flavor and now a summer raspberry... Ewwww... yuk!!!

I will stick with my hazelnut and my caramel vanilla!

Have fun torturing truckers!

be well,

 My coffee has to be double strength and dark roast.  Working nights without it I turn into the Bear.  I hate smelling drains.  Lemon juice and baking soda until the man come to fix it.

I can't help you with the CoffeeMate, but I have a suggestion before you shell out big bucks for the RotoRooter guy -- go put a quart of water down every sink and floor drain and washer drain in the place -- floor drains in the middle of the bathroom, every sink and shower and eye flush or skin flush emergency station. What you are most likely smelling is methane gas entering the building via a dry trap -- no liquid in the trap means easy access for the gas. If that solves the problem, get the bosses to spend some money on some mineral oil and pour about a cup in each little used drain. Be thorough in your hunt for those drains, they can be hidden under tables and desks and false floors, etc.

Good luck and wash your feet so they don't think it is you.

I just saw the Blueberry Cobbler flavor in the store the other day and I picked it up, thinking that it would be great.

Then I got to thinking, Blueberry Cobbler and Coffee...together.  Not WITH each other, but together.  So I chickened out.

After reading your review, I'm glad I did.  Thanks for confirming my suspicions.  (And sorry about your cup of coffee.)
