How I make coffee.

1. Clean counter off.
2. Fill coffee pot with water.
3. Spill water on counter while filling reservoir.
4. Clean Counter.
5. Put filter in, add coffee grounds.
6. Spill coffee grounds on counter.
7. Clean counter.
8. Wait for coffee to percolate. Spill coffee on counter while pouring into mug.
9. Clean counter.

Now I know why Starbucks charges so much.

That is so funny. I have on occassion even bumped the pot on the counter on broken it -- full of water of course.

May I add "spill the soggy grounds out of the torn filter from the previous days pot"?

Me,too! (And me, too to what Everyday Mommy said!)

Ugh. That sounds painfully familiar, even what Everyday Mommy added.

This is so on the money that it's not funny! I've done the AM and EM part too.

I think I'll just have an IV coffee line added to me so that I can avoid all that other mess...

I totally win on this one!

Here's how I do it - "sis, make me a cup of coffee" said from bed and remaining there until said coffee is delivered.

And then cleaning up the mess on the counter when I am moving. :-)

It's my reward for letting twins scar up my perfect 19 year old body 13 years ago.
