Topic: No Sense Crying Over Spilt Ethiopia FTO DP Lekempti (but I will, anyway...) (30 lines)

Well, this morning I decided to make a late morning, second cup of this
WONDERFUL coffee. The full, rich flavor has been haunting me (I roasted half
of what I have of this wonderful bean, which amounts to my very-scientific
assessment of, oh, about 3/4 of one of my Mason jars) - so I made another
'cup' (by cup, I mean a huge, soup-bowl cup, equal to about two normal
mugfuls).
Left enough beans for another half cup (or one normal mug). Was doing the
usual female multitasking, and decided to clean a bit of my counter -  while
I was waiting for the French Press brew to finish. Poured my cup, and
reached over to do one more thing -
and bam - the whole cup tipped over!!!!
Impossible to salvage brewed coffee (unlike when I spilled all of the
roasted beans on the floor while attempting to pour them into the jar - one
word from me & my Emma didn't DARE to even set one paw in the kitchen!),
although I had one moment envisioning myself trying to lap it up from the
counter...
Decided to brew up the last bit from the jar, & now I need to roast the rest
of this wonderful bean. So sad to see it go... (sniffle, sniffle)

P.S. I also have managed to burn through my tea kettle and two pans lately -
the last one I actually left on when I left the house, something I  haven't
done in YEARS. Time to get an electric kettle, I think...
