I was telling my kids this morning that I probably wasn't going to make coffee because:
1. I don't really like the taste. Unless it has so much cream and sugar in it that it becomes something else.
2. I tend to gain weight when I drink coffee (see #1).
3. Coffee doesn't really make me feel more alert, anyway.
I decided what the heck, I'll make some coffee. So I measured some whole beans and dumped them in the filter and added water. That was my first clue. My kids were like, "Ummm, yeah..."
THEN while waiting to have my coffee, I was talking to my oldest about shipping guitars internationally, because she's selling one on ebay, and I said, "It's totally do-able. Your uncle sent his Stradivarius to...." then I forgot the word for a minute, so I came up with... "English."
She just stared at me, "Mom. Stratocaster. England. Just stop talking."
Then they were like, "Omg, what is she going to be like when she's really old?"
Meanwhile she totally drew a cartoon me to illustrate, and put it on her comic blog.
In the meantime, I said about three more totally wrong things, then I had to do some other stuff, and now my coffee's cold, so if there are wrong words here, too, I apologize. Maybe I'll start over and have an iced coffee...
Nice to know I'm not a special snowflake, and I probably need coffee as much as the next person, but seriously?? Wrong words??
