Lessons from a Total Retard Vol 1: Making Coffee


I'm home with my trick back today, but am trying to get some work done anyway. I thought I might enjoy a nice cup of coffee while I sit at the computer.

I set some beans to grind. Then I filled the coffee pot with fresh, cold water and poured it into the coffee maker's water chamber while the beans were busy grinding. I also removed the filter basket from the coffee maker and rinsed it out just to make sure it was ready for use. I put the filter back into the coffee maker.

The beans were finished grinding. Yum, what a nice aroma that is.

I opened the top of the bean grinder, and dumped in the coffee grounds.

Right into the coffee maker's water chamber.



Yep, borderline retarded.

Love, CP

ps: Please don't tell George.

That's not retarded. It's undercaffeinated.

Echo said...

Too much blood in your caffeine-stream...

I'm really good at washing the pot and putting it in the drainer, and then starting the coffeemaker and walking away. When the basket fills up because the drip stop doesn't let the brewed coffee out onto the empty hotplate this great mixture of grounds and steaming hot coffee flows everywhere. It's great. And in England, the electricity somehow knows and turns off all the power in your house to prevent a hazard. How can people who can't function without coffee be expected to make it when they get up?

At least your eyes are a nice colour in the photo? And wow, those Whitestrips really work too? Retard. I say that with no comment on how often I find the TV remote in the freezer or cupboard.

Katy said...

that is what happens when you haven't had coffee!!!!

Echo said...

I've been known to put "The Dibs" in the refrigerator instead of the freezer only to be horribly disappointed the next day. THey just don't feel like ice cream or a frozen food. It's like a tupperware container that you would never dream of putting in the freezer... The key is more caffeine, CP. Time to start mainlining it if you ask me...

Yeah...I think EVERYONE has done that AT LEAST once!!! It's a bitch to clean, isn't it?!!? (I mean, that's what they tell me, when I do it I just leave the house. It's up to the person that finds it, right?)

Ten-S: Well, considering I usually drink half decaf, it's a lame excuse - but I'll take it anyway.

Echo: I'm not sure I know what "the Dibs" are. Am I having another retarded moment?

MJ: If they can make such smart electicity over there, why can't they do something about their teeth?

Dale: OK, I'm not even going to ask how the remote ends up in the freezer. But I hope it's something dirty.

Katy: Like with Ten-S, I appreciate your trying to make excuses for me, but it's really that I'm just retarded.

Jin: Surprisingly, it wasn't too hard to clean out. If I had turned it on and tried to run it, it probably would have ruined the machine. Luckily, I caught what I was doing right at the moment. Aaarrrgh.

I outsource my coffee making. There are a Starbucks and a quaint little indie bakery both within walking distance. I see no reason to risk electricution when there are trained professionals in the neighborhood.

Coaster Punchman said...

Lu: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA (that was funny, what you said)

Echo said...

The Dibs are little ice cream cubes coated in chocolate - think bite sized morsels. Come in many flavors. Mint, vanilla, Crunch, Toffee, Drumstick, Peanut Butter. Very tasty and bite sized.

lulu said...

Drumstick? Chicken or Turkey?

Echo said...

Niiiiice, Ululay.... Drumstick as in Drumstick Ice Cream Cones....

I am beginning to think that the more you people read the coaster punchman, the more you are apt to infect yourself with Acquired Retardation Gout and Hilarity, or ARGH! I have been living with ARGH for 9 years now.
