Out of the Blue

It's been a long time since I had a coffee making disaster story to share here, as eliminating an automatic coffee maker (especially the unattended variety) took a lot of the peril out of the process. That hasn't made it fool-proof, however, as fools like myself can be tough to out-unsmart. This morning I made the mistake of picking up the coffee container by the lid, which is tight enough to be almost airtight when affixed, but it turns out, not tight enough to hold up the weight of the coffee. The resulting spill scattered about half of the two pounds of beans across the floor, perfectly evenly as if each bean was hand-placed. I managed to choke back the tears that the sight of all those beautiful glossy French-roasted beans going to waste before getting to cleaning up my mess. I'll admit to thinking long and hard about whether these could be rescued, but that's a floor where everyone walks, including the Gunnar-man, and I know where his feet have been.
