coffee time

Dear Coffee Drinker next in line,

You don't know me, and that's most likely a good thing. I only started drinking coffee last month when I turned 50; before that I only drank Pepsi in the morning. I figured it was finally time to grow up and join the coffee drinking masses.

I find that the coffee at 7-11 is pretty good especially with the International Delight French Vanilla creamer that sits on the coffee counter, so I treat myself to a cup of coffee there every so often.

Since I am a new coffee drinker and all, and since I am a spaz of ginormous proportions, I didn't realize that the top of the French Vanilla creamer isn't supposed to be removed. Unfortunately it wouldn't fit back correctly, so I just left it sitting precariously on top of the container.

I am so sorry that you probably didn't notice that it wasn't on there tight while you poured it into your coffee. Whatever the repercussions of my stupidity caused you - I am truly sorry. I know I should have alerted the coffee clerk, but alas, I was too embarrassed at my inexperience at coffee counter etiquette.

Again, sorry.

As they all say at 7-11, "Have a good one."

Very truly yours,

Yew Nork Babe

Too too funny!! My daughter likes to go to the Corner Store and get coffee with that same creamer, but it comes in little containers to avoid such a disaster! I would love to have been watching that happen!

I still don't drink coffee. I tried to learn in college when it was the "in" thing to do while studying - well, not so "in" as now! But it just never took with me - I cannot stand the taste - and it totally ruins chocolate when they try to put them together!

Well, enjoy the coffee and thanks for a good chuckle this morning.

That's funny. I understand the embarrassment of it all. I'm sure it all worked out in the end.

I've been gone for a bit. Trying to catch up on my reading.

glad you are doing ok, juggling career and mom duties is NEVER easy! (commenting on previous posts) I am totally trying to work all that out as well.

How funny! That's exactly why I drink mine black! I didn't start drinking coffee until after I had my first child! O.K. I was only 18.
