Good morning. Coffee story time. ☕️
There have been many times that my "smart" phone has made me feel stupid, but never as much as it did this morning. 😏
But first, in my defense of innocence👼, let me say that I woke up again at 2:40 a.m. with leg cramps, a headache, and severe nausea. I sat there rubbing my leg, trying not to think, and breathing deeply to calm my tummy. It took until almost 4 a.m. to quiet my body down enough to even get sleepy again. Knowing that I needed to wake up at 5:45 a.m. (work day today), I checked my alarm. Realizing how tired I was I was afraid that I would not hear the alarm. So, since I slept in a sundress with an elastic bodice, I slipped my phone down into the front of my dress, and I went to sleep.
Now, second in my defense, I was going thru some of my things between Christmas and New Year's - a purging of sorts. And I found a package of panties that were brand new. Yeah, me. However, I have lost some weight since buying them, so they are about a size and half too big. Didn't think about that being an issue.
I woke up at 6:06 a.m. thinking of nothing but making coffee. ☕️As I was putting the coffee and water into the pot, I felt that uncomfortable urgency to pee. (TMI? I'm sure it will be worth it.) I focused intensely on getting the coffee going. About that time, I thought about my phone. I felt the top of my dress, no phone. Did I dream that I put it there? I walked over to the recliner, did not see my phone. But the urgency to pee was greater than the desire to find my phone.
I started back to the bathroom, reminding myself that I needed to plug my phone in for a charge when I found it.
Almost to the bathroom and a light came on.
Under my dress.
Lower than my waist.
? ? ? 🧐
Losing all sense of needing to pee at that moment, I realized what had happened.
One more "in my defense", I have a popper on the back of my phone to help me not drop it (I have arthritis in my right hand, and sometimes I simply lose the grasp on things).
Ok, to finish this.
My phone had slipped down into my dress, I assume when I stood up. The popper had hung on my panties. I also assume that in moving around the screen had come on, or the flashlight button had been activated. 😒
Yes, I retrieved my phone from my panties, turned the screen & flashlight off, plugged it in.
Then made a mad urgent dash to the bathroom to PEE!
So that was the beginning of my Saturday morning. How is yours? Sigh
I love this picture.
Having been to many old country stores,
I know how this store smells inside,
I can hear the creaking of the floor boards.
Oh the stories that are being told on this porch!
The laughter that rings in the air. T
he ice cold drinks, with bits of ice frozen to the bottle that drips on the shirt as it melts. Ahhhh...yes, I love this picture -
and the memories it invokes.
Why this page?
I wanted a place to share coffee thoughts & memes. I use Facebook & Twitter to do just that, however, I realize that many people are getting fed up with all the drama that is on either, and both. So many that were using those 2 social medias to stay in touch, have taken a step back - yet they still want to know thoughts that go thru this scattered widow's brain. If you are interested, here it is :) - - without the drama.
