I woke up this morning with a gigantic headache and in need of coffee. When I went into my cupboard it held no coffee filters. I thought about knocking on a neighbor’s door to borrow one, but then I caught a glimpse of my hair standing out all willy nilly in the toaster. I also thought I heard the toaster snickering, but that was probably just a side effect of the headache....
*makes a note to check on that later though*
I had just resigned myself to some really strong tea when I had an idea. No, we need a word bigger than idea here….not quite a word as big as epiphany, but close. I think what I had was an inspiration. I looked at the tea bag in my hand and thought, hey why not?
I cut the end off of the tea bag and dumped the tea into the trash. What I had left was a little tube of cheesecloth open at both ends. I stapled one end, stood the tube up in my coffee can and filled it with darkly roasted ground up heaven. Then I stapled the bundle shut on the other end and lovingly snuggled it into my coffee maker’s basket.
Now here’s the thing. It worked great, and I’ve since had my coffee, but what I want to know is when you look at the photo, do any of you have an urge to draw a face on the little bundle?
…..and maybe give it a blankie, some arms…. a hat….and a teddy…..?
There goes the damn toaster snickering again…..
