The best part of waking up…

If you are a coffee drinker or a commercial watcher you are aware of the line that is supposed to come next. Well, I would like to add my rendition…

“the best part of waking up is foldgers in your (lap).” Yeah, that’s right. This morning at about 8am, I was wiping the sleep from my eyes, changing the channel and then dumped my freshly poured hot cup of joe in my lap. Friends let me tell you, there is a better pick me up in the morning, better than caffeine. “Oh,” you ask inquistevley. For the best morning wake up, a hot cup of coffee in the lap is a sure bet. Thankfully, I have only sustained minor burns, and McDonald’s don’t worry, it wasn’t your fault!

    goodness, jason – i hope this doesn’t affect the further propagation of your household.

    as a dude, i have to say that ANY burns in my lap area would most certainly NOT qualify as “minor.”

  4. Scott,

    Yeah, thanks! I guess you are right, as a dude, a burn in the lap region isn’t minor. Thanks for thinking about our future!

  5. Well, the good news is; you won’t do that again…
