"there was a little accident today while you're at work", the wife began to explain, "and I have some bad news"
"okay, now let the other shoe drop"
"well… the baby got into the cabinet and she dropped the coffee press."
"and it shattered into a million pieces"
"does the baby know that if I can't have coffee, that there is going to be fucking murders?"
"I'm not sure"
so a change of shirt and out the door I went. up to 3rd avenue to the Starbucks.
up to park ave.
undaunted, the bastard walks to the Starbucks on 5th and boom.
now let's dispense with the fact that I went to a major coffee chain to find a goddam press. up yours shiteyes, I'd have to walk clean across this crapstand to find a home goods store that I can buy a press at.
and let's dispense with the bastard's hoi paloi fashion of making coffee. hey guy, up yours.
that's right, I'm talking bout your moms.
the press takes up less space than any other coffee contraption and besides, there's this guy at my office who looks like fucking old fezziwig from a Christmas carol who has a coffee setup in his cube that look like a frikkin steampunk movie vomited in his cubicle. so someone else walks the earth with a greater sense of coffee snobbery than the bastard ever could.
but I digress.
I realize that I could never NOT live in a large city like this. the fact that I can walk 5 minutes from my doorstep to replace my coffee maker tells me that I cannot leave. that and the fact that the first time I tell cooter about his moms, he might stick a shotgun in my mouth.
did I mention that I was preventing fucking murders?
