No, I’m not going to pull a joke on you guys here but I do have a pretty awesome tale to tell of my best day ever at this time of year!
Allow me to tell a tale of a day where I frustrated my parents to no end (outside of destroying a car or two that is…).
We live in a very small little town outside of a bigger town. It was about a 20min drive into the bigger city that my parents made every day for their respective jobs. Their morning ritual wa to wake up, make a coffee to drink and another for the road. Being the high school teen that never did anything wrong, but was somewhat smart by typical standards, I replaced the sugar with salt. While this is nothing terribly new, I should have mentioned that my parents made all 4 cups of coffee at the same time. So, they get dumped down the drain right? Being slightly rushed for time, and the sugar not being in its proper spot (hmm…) they went for the backup.
The backup was in the nice fine china cabinet in the dining room. This is quite a reasonable course of action and you should be already sub-consciously aware of where this is going. Damn straight. Their little boy genius swapped the backup sugar with salt too! That is EIGHT CUPS OF COFFEE DOWN THE DRAIN! Totally worth it. Even way better than the ‘kick me sign’ that I stuck on the back of dad’s coat one year and he walked around my mothers very public jobs space 😀
And before any of you coffee lovers give me grief…it was instant.
