If you’ve never heard of a Keurig machine, you are in for a wondrous surprise. This magic piece of technology that sits atop your kitchen counter offers up a steaming hot cup O’Joe at your every whim. For someone as lazy as I am (that’s pretty lazy) and unwilling to do housework (I blame my mother for forcing me to clean her bathroom weekly, so don’t judge me.), it is especially exciting. There is no pot that sits undrunk (is that a word?) for a full 23 hours as the unwanted, and dare I say excessive, 3 other cups of coffee dry up inside waiting to be scrubbed by my pre-caffeinated shell of a body, the next morning. There are no paper filters to add, or grinds to scoop; there is just a cute little k-cup to pop in and in less than 30 seconds later, BAM!! You have a hot mug of happiness.
There are those of you out there who don’t share my newfound affinity for coffee, and I can relate. For years before I entered into the corporate workforce, I too scoffed at the remarkable powers of caffeine – for you, there are a dizzying array of choices that will undoubtedly make you fall for a piece of machinery that actually doesn’t open up Facebook or live in your bedside drawer. Teas and cocoas and ciders oh my! There are even iced drink options.How does that even happen?!
Oh Kerurig, how you whisk me away to a caffeinated wonderland, one glorious k-cup at a time. You are awesome and you make the world a better place for being in it. If I could legally marry you, I would still be deathly afraid of marriage, and highly unlikely to go through with it – but I’d consider it just for you (just know that at the end of that sentence is an over dramatic “sexy” wink, yes, I like to act out my stories and I’m not ashamed to admit that.) You are just that special to me, so thank you for being you, and keep up the good work.
