Drank the Kool-Aid again

Or the coffee. Oi. Yes, I am ashamed to say that yesterday, I had the Thriller pick up a pint-sized Keurig for my classroom. Does that make me a bad person? I mean, I’ve kept my “no coffee at school” resolution for a couple of years now.

Wait a minute — aren’t I supposed to be caring less about what folks might think of me? What about that┬áresolution?

Yeah. OK, so — look at my new pretty thing. Yay for me! Fortunately, it has no water reservoir; therefore, I have to actually put in the water every time I want some coffee. I figure I shouldn’t have any problem sticking with 2 cups a day (one late morning, one afternoon), unless I feel the need for some jazzin’ before rehearsal. That ought to delight my students, HA

So there it is. I’ve outed myself about it, and I’m not ashamed anymore. At least I don’t think I am. Should I be? Yikes. Are you disappointed?


Have a good Thursday, fiends. I can almost see the finish line of the Week What Would Not End.

    If having the coffee at school keeps you from hiding a flask at school then I say go for it!!! HA You do what you have to do…..no guilt. :)

    How cute! Every classroom should have one, I say! And yes, you are NOT to be concerned any longer with what others think. Just me. Period. Don’t slap me.

    Have a Keurig-ulous day, Bird!!!

      Of COURSE I listen to you — and as Mother used to say: “You be careful, little girl. I’ll slap.” HAAA

    How cute!!! You should give it a name!

    Here’s some suggestions:
    Joe (naaah.. Too obvious)
    Katie – hey, it could be a girl!
    Or a German name: Helga? Jaap?

    I’m winding down the Semester that would not end so I’m with ya!

      Isn’t it cute? And I used it three times today. Love it! (Jaap…hahaha)

      You need a break after this semester — we both do! XO

    You’ve been very transparent about your decision to take up coffee again, so you don’t have to sneak around about imbibing. You’re so right: it really doesn’t matter at all what others think. But, if you do feel some guilt about this, perhaps you could assuage the guilt by drinking decaf :-) Just a suggestion, you understand.
