Wacky Wednesday – Coffee and Balls

Contrary to what the neighbors reported yesterday, I did NOT tackle the UPS man, wrestle the box he was carrying from his hands, and dash into the house mumbling “My precioussssss.” shifty-eyes-ani2faster Nor did I give him a big sloppy kiss. He’s cute but not that cute. Even if he did bring my new coffee maker. Want to see?

Here’s the mailing box it came in and here’s the manufacturer’s box. So much to unwrap!!!

And here’s my new precious all set up and holding the elixir of life. Yes, I did make a pot immediately, even if it was 3:00 p.m. Why do you ask?

Some of you may have seen my comment yesterday on Facebook about the woman with balls. Yeah. You read that right. I really wish I’d taken the risk of grabbing my iPhone to snap a picture but I was driving at the time. See, I overheard the conversation while I was in the drive-through line at the cleaners. The woman in question was on her cellphone walking out of the cleaners and I overheard her say:

“I don’t really care what anyone thinks. They’re my ex’s. I got them in the divorce and I’ll be damned if he ever gets them back.”

I didn’t think much about it until she got in her car and pulled out in front of me. She was driving a late model Hyundai sporty sedan. (Don’t ask me the model, I have no clue!) And hanging from the license plate frame was a pair of metal balls. Like THESE. But wait. Even if you know what I’m talking about, you must click the link. And scroll down below the pics to see the sales pitch. Trust me. It’s worth it. The double entendres are just…perfect. Of course, my brain went there. Immediately. Go see for yourself.

I’ll be luxuriating in fresh, hot, TASTY coffee today. And trying to get focused to work again. Because with coffee and balls…what else am I going to do, right? πŸ˜‰

  1. Ummm… okay. Definitely too early for reading about my automotive testicle needs.

    Oooo, pretty pretty coffee machine. Oh great manufacturing apparatus for the elixir of life. May it serve you well. My new Black and Decker machine is awesome, but the caffeine is not entering my blood stream fast enough this morning.

      I will hug it and pet it and call it George. πŸ˜‰ I love the Bunn. It take about 2 minutes to have hot coffee. As long as I remember to set up the filter and coffee the night before, I can manage to pour the water in. LOL And I hear you on the sluggishness of the blood stream today. Not a good sign. 😦

    Nice coffee maker! We always had Bunn coffee makers in the staff rooms – coffee at your fingertips! Now, we just use the standard department store issue. And as for coffee when there is no coffee maker – I LOVE instant coffee, so I have no problems if the maker goes on the fritz!

    Off to check out the balls πŸ˜‰

      Instant coffee is not my friend. It’ll do in an emergency but I can usually figure out a way to get brewed coffee one way or another. πŸ˜† I love my Bunn. It’s made for home use and having the the thermal carafe keeps the coffee from “spoiling” by sitting on a burner all day.

  3. I have three coffee pots. Always a back up around.
    They have Blue Balls. And if she was really thinking straight, she would have the key chain instead. Those are tiny. Then proudly say that they were her exes. LOL

Got something to say?
