Today is that day. It was a wedding gift from my sister, which makes it all the more special. It has been with us for more than 2 years. It is true, it is about time to get a new one. In fact, just a week or so ago, my husband and I were looking at new coffee makers with cappuccino features at the shopping mall. Yet I didn’t really think that I was going to get a new one so soon.
Here’s how it happened – I was still in bed when hubby asked me if I wanted him to brew up some coffee already. I was thinking that it was still too early so I said, in an hour or so – to keep the coffee fresh. Well, 5 minutes before that hour was up, I was awakened rudely by a crash in the kitchen. Alas, my trusty old pot fell from the counter and was smashed into smithereens! I do not know what happened. Maybe there was a tremor and the pot fell. Maybe the counter was wet (which is very likely) and the pot slipped.
No use in crying over spilled milk but it does make me feel sad – more for sentimental reasons, really (and the fact that I am drinking instant Nescafe right now!). Practical me, I have already spent a few minutes looking at new coffee makers online. Maybe I’ll head on over to the mall near the office during my break later on and check out what I can find. It’s a pity, though, because I can only afford a basic coffee maker today – that means if I get one, I would not be able to get a new (and better) machine for quite some time. I need my brewed coffee!!!
