Gimme coffee (35/366)

To save money, Karla is finally going to put her French Press to use (which has been unused in her office for almost a year now). We went upstairs to the kitchen to try it out with Starbucks Christmas Blend coffee.

The coffee grinds were my ammo. I fired them out of my AeroPress and they exploded upon impact. I basically had a handheld mortar.

While I was running, I could distinctively remember thinking, “What kind of lame weapon is this?

An enemy soldier got in front of us and tried to shoot, but his rifle jammed. I quickly fired my AeroPress and blew him up to smithereens.

Then, I woke up. It was 5:26am this morning. I immediately emailed myself the following:

Go ahead and laugh. 🙂

AeroPress – the only way to make great coffee
