25 Years About to Go Down Da Drain With the Coffee Creamer

Dragged myself out of bed this morning, headed for the coffee, made the coffee in a sleep-deprived stupor, turned for the cream, couldn't find it, opened eyes wider, couldn't find it, shut fridge door and saw it sitting out on the counter.

My husband, and I use the term loosely this morning, was up late last night, very strange for him, and apparently made himself some coffee and LOST HIS MIND and forgot to put the cream back.

Ruined. Ruined. Ruined.


RUINED.

Cream is down the drain. Marriage is hanging only by a thread.

This is a day that will live in marital infamy for the next 25 years.

How you can even string the words together after such a devastation is awe inspiring. Lidna - I feel your pain. Jorge...you gotta lot of explainin' to do!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Exactly, Cathy. I have typed "Exactly, Cathy" three times because of groggy mistypes. It's gonna be a rough one.

Melanie said...

It's such a let down when I have to use "milk" instead of my precious 1/2 and 1/2 in my morning coffee.

Mocha with Linda said...

The man owes you big time. I think he needs to get you one of the coffee machines like I have. Not that he would be out of the doghouse, but it's a start.

Beverlydru said...

Tragic. I'm stunned. ; )

haha! Twice now I've gone to Wal-Mart for my cappucino and my flavor has been out. But both nights the night stockers were busy so I bugged them until they went to the back and found me my lifeline. I just told them, "my family thanks you". LOL...show Jorge grace Lidna!! ;)

Helen said...

... it's 7:36am in Bend. I just poured a huge cup of coffee ~ with creamer. Sorry.

In such dire circumstances the only reasonable solution is to head straight to Starbucks...Jorge can fend for himself...

Right up there with the time my (still) hubby ate the last spoonful of Ben and Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream that I had been saving! After my first meltdown, he went to the store to replace it and came back with a store brand (!!!) chocolate ice cream. Enter second meltdown. Second trip back to the store.

Did I mention I was 41.5 weeks pregnant???

Crazy Me said...

I believe that actually warrants a walk straight back to bed. Sleep tight. Till the creamer makes it back.

Debbie said...

Perhaps a trip to the local coffee shop for a fresh cup of coffee and muffin will help repair the damage! I hear your pain except I am the one who usually leaves out the items. :)

Maribeth said...

Although I loath coffee mate and evaporated milk, I keep both on hand for such emergencies!

Recovering Church Lady said...

Good, now you can learn how to drink coffee black like a real woman!
:)

Mrs. E said...

Are you sure you and I aren't long lost sisters??? : )

Toyin O. said...

So funny, I feel your pain:)

Cindy Swanson said...

Aw,Linda, that creamer was probably still good. After all, I think it keeps in the refrigerator for, like, two years. :)

SouthLakesMom said...

When went to Breckenridge for Christmas there were 3 males in the house drinking coffee. Thus, I never got a cup. So now I'm coffee free. Completely! Even walked into Starbucks the other day to buy a gift card. It smelled good but I wasn't even tempted.

That wouldn't fix the creamer mistake, but at least you wouldn't need it . . .

Susan said...

Uh-oh...some things are just deal breakers..;-) Hope you're well. :-) Susan

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

Sorry for such a yucky start to a day. I feel your pain...hubby does not do it anymore either.

2Thinks said...

As long as you don't let the sun go down on your anger. Perhaps you'll have to move to that part of Alaska where the sun shines all the time.

I'm with ya on that creamer business- must have.

Susanne said...

Nooooo! How did you survive the morning? Maybe a better question is how did Jorge ever survive the morning? :vD

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

Oh, I feel your pain....but I am now a die-hard dry creamer person! Don't want milk in my coffee or anything that is "cold" anymore! But if we start getting low on creamer, I panic! Can't be without it!

feelin' your pain...i use the 'mini moos'

CrowGeo said...

I'm certain I was sleep-drinking.

Kate said...

Oooohhhh...that would push my marriage to the brink, too. In a flat minute!

Clearly today is a sick day - and will remain so until you get the creamer.

Asia said...

Love your blog...following you and look forawrd to more post by you

Rebecca said...

That is so funny. I laughed out loud when I read this post! I hope that you had a great day regardless!

annette said...

I like reading your comments almost as much as I like reading your posts. And I do sympathize...a day without coffee is a day without, well, I can't think of anything quite that big. When I do, I'll let you know.

Shasta said...

Glad to see that I am not the only one with a serious coffee & creamer addiction!
