As you know…I pretty much bleed coffee. Okay I will admit that I have cut way back from my university days and try to maintain a better balance but in all truth I really love my morning coffee. It can even be decaf…doesn’t matter. I enjoy the taste, the aroma and the ritual of sipping away while I check my social media sites.
Know what I don’t love? Cleaning the freakin coffee maker and making the coffee. I love that mine has a timer and if I remember to put it on it’s like freakin Christmas to wake up to hot coffee already made. Seriously great way to start the day. Still, not a fan of the mess but totally worth the effort once I get hot coffee.
I was really happy then to be at another person’s office and they mentioned that there was a fresh pot made and to help myself. (yeah!)
I also got a good laugh as they had many different little ‘love’ notes all over their kitchen about cleaning up after yourself. The classic “your mother doesn’t work here, clean it up yourself” always gets a giggle. Then I caught one that said “the coffee fairy doesn’t work here; make the damn coffee”. I smirked because I have often joked about where the coffee fairy was myself.
So, I googled the coffee fairy later on thinking to send a joke to a friend who also has a coffee addiction…err…love of coffee! Yes that’s what we’ll say…love of coffee.
Check out what I found.
Sent that off to my friend who also had a good giggle at it. I read it again in her reply and my thoughts were interesting. My first thought was “hmm, ya, just like life”
It’s truth in a funny little package. Life isn’t made by fairies and benevolent beings either. Occasionally you might find someone is willing to share a little of what they have, but for most days, you have to do what it takes.
So, get yourself out there and make it for yourself. The best part is once you figure it out, you make it exactly how you like it. Kinda like coffee.
(Ha, and you thought I was just on a love-rant about coffee!)
