My mother

The following is an email exchange between me and my mother...

Mom-

Our coffee maker finally died. I ordered a new one from Crate & Barrel with the gift card Jim gave me for my birthday but it hasn’t come yet. And the only thing they have here at work is instant coffee! I’m dying!! I have a headache from caffeine withdrawal. Send help. And Dunkin Donuts. Fast.

Love,

Your only daughter

To My Only Daughter!!!

I feel very bad for you!! We all had a good laugh over your email!!

You better take a ride at lunch and go get a coffee somewhere!!! Or have Andy deliver a coffee to you!!

How long with the coffee maker take to come, you should have it expressed!! What about that coffee maker we bought you for college, the one that makes one/two cups at a time??

Love,

YOUR ONLY MOTHER!!!

Dear Only Mother,

I’m so glad I was able to entertain you and your coworkers with my misery. I swallowed my gourmet coffee pride and drank the instant stuff. Only one word to describe it. Ew.


Love,

Your favorite daughter

Wooo! I'm glad I don't drink coffee anymore so I don't have to deal with those caffeine withdrawal symptoms! All I do is keep some tea bags in my desk at work, toss one in a mug and go to the water cooler which has a "HOT" tap too! Bingo! Tea made!
