Two steps forward--Three steps back
Awaken… and I need coffee. Amble out to the kitchen and find the beans, find the grinder, find the coffeepot, find the water tap. Perform the necessary machinations to initialize the production of one hot pot of coffee. Press play and move on to step 2.
Find the coffee cup, find the powdered hot chocolate, find french vanilla creamer. Chocolate and creamer go into cup, and spoon mixes the two into a paste at the bottom of the cup. Set cup next to coffeemaker.
Take a break to await coffee's completion. Find newspaper, clear Words With Friends board, check email …
Coffeemaker alerts me that the brew is complete, and that it's time for step 3. Remove myself to kitchen, grab pot and fill cup. Reach for spoon … but, where the hell is it? No matter, I can improvise. Pluck peanut butter covered knife from sink, pinch with two fingers between blade and handle, immerse handle in coffee and stir.
Step 4, retire to living room couch and pat myself on back for my ingenuity pertinent to keeping the caffeine train in motion. Enjoy my coffee concoction - I call it the poor man's mocha, by the way.
Coffee cup's empty, but I still need something - a nutritious breakfast - and more coffee sure would be something.
Proceed to step 5. Again to kitchen to find hot chocolate and french vanilla creamer. Right on the counter, but this time I'll need a spoon. The peanut butter knife won't do for transferring chocolate from container to cup. Open silverware drawer and… Crap! There's the spoon I used the first go around. Gummy creamer/ chocolate all over the forks - seems I didn't get the spoon all the way home. Stay focused, liberate spoon from mess in drawer and plunge into powdered chocolate container. Extract powder and… Crap again! Where's my coffee cup? I can see it on the floor by the couch. Drop spoon on the counter, retrieve cup, reenlist aid of spoon to get cocoa powder into cup. Add creamer, stir into paste at bottom of the cup. Reach for coffeepot … Oh, for crying out loud! Where's the freaking coffeepot? Not on the counter, not in the sink, not on the kitchen table … hmmm.
Reevaluate and refocus. Maybe some eggs would be nice. Step 1, open refrigerator to get eggs … ah, there's the coffeepot.
