How nice to have a contraption available to service oneself when one's =
missus doesn't wish to do it.  I might look into obtaining one.

  James used incorrect grammar, but I think you know quite well what he =
meant.
  First, to quote The Columbia Guide to Standard American English,
"Mrs. is the Standard abbreviation (with or without the period) of the =
title used in traditional direct address to a married woman or widow: 
Mrs. [John] Jones, or Mrs. [Mary] Smith. Today, many but by no means 
all women prefer Ms. (which see) to Mrs. Mesdames is used as its 
plural, abbreviated Mmes. The pronunciation of Mrs. (MIS-iz) is 
reflected in the dialectal Missus and missis spellings we find as eye 
dialect in some literary contexts. The missus [missis] is also a Common =
or Vulgar English synonym for “wife”: I’ll have to ask the missus =
[missis]. For addressing a woman whose name is unknown, Madame, Madam, =
or Ma’am, the counterparts of Sir, are Standard; in this context =
Missus 
or Mrs. would be considered Common or Vulgar. See also MISS."
  Now, obviously, James meant he has some sort of contraption that 
services him in a way that his wife doesn't like to do herself AND he 
can use it while drinking coffee. Hence, it is convenient and it 
pleases the Mrs. (or Missus).
  Somehow, I fear this may have veered OT.

I imagine it could be some sort of modified Aeropress. Maybe this is 
what people were talking about in another thread discussing an "inverted 
Aeropress". I wasn't really paying attention, but if I recall correctly, 
they were saying it would be good for travel too.

Lighten up, Francis.  I get that it was OT.   Was referring to the bolded
part.
