If you know me, or have seen pictures of me, you know that I love my Dunkin Donuts decaf iced coffee with cream! No, I don't love it, I ADORE it! I crave it! I must have it! If I don't have one in my hand or my car, rest assured that my plans for the very near future include hitting the drive-thru for some. SOME, that implies plural. I always get two. One is usually inhaled, sorry, enjoyed after dinner and the other is saved for early morning. It's always a good day when I have my iced coffee. Today, however, was not a good day for coffee!
It started out innocently enough. We were all headed to the car to go pick up Abigail's new eye glasses and run a few errands after the kids got home. I took the dogs out and sat down in one of the chairs we have on the patio. I placed my coffee at my feet - big mistake! Jamison came out with a basketball and began to shoot hoops, which always makes Chloe go nuts because she is obsessed with balls! No matter how big or small, the dog must play with it! Actually, she destroys most balls, but not intentionally. One will get caught behind a bush and by the time she finishes barking at it, biting and pawing at it, it's flat. She gets the saddest look on her face too, poor thing. Anyway, she started chasing the ball around and barking and going for the rebounds and ran over my coffee cup, sending it's precious contents hither and yon! I was like "ACK!" Another good reason for decaf - crazy puppies who drink coffee off the brick patio!
|Yes, you're pretty, but you're nuts!|
|Our sweet Chloe|
So, needless to say, we had to add picking up coffee to our errand list. We did and I was happily taking a sip when Shannon ran over a big bump in the road and I spit it all over my shirt! Argh! Then, to add insult to injury, while carrying one cup in the crook of my arm on they way to the house, coffee came pouring out of the straw hole and all down my arm and side! What's up with that? I have no idea! Coffee Curse? Thank goodness I was able to drink it into submission before anyone was hurt! Let's hope things are a little calmer today!
|Yes she looks so innocent while sleeping!|
Have a great Thursday!
