Like this coffee maker. I have been obsessing about getting one of these for months. Most of the time, I was able to forget about it, even when I walked by the stack of them at Wal-Mart.
Don't get me wrong. My old el-cheapo, $19.95 Mr. Coffee model was still going strong after four years, so I didn't really need a new coffee maker. I mean, the old thing was stained but the carafe was still in one piece, so I hadn't gone without coffee - ever. Dangit!
I once had a Ford Escort that was like that. That stupid car would not die and give me a reason to get something else. It was a boxy looking 4-door that was too heavy for its itty-bitty engine, and the stupid thing wouldn't get out of its own way. No risk of speeding tickets in that dumb thing. I still have nightmares about that car-that-wouldn't-go-away.
Yesterday, I could resist no longer. I bought the brew station coffee maker. It is cool! Where the old, stained Mr. Coffee sat is now the bright, shiny, new brew station. Ah.
Oh my, the coffee tastes so good!
Now I have to find something else to obsess about. Things just ain't normal without it. Any suggestions?
