Coffee Machine Love.
I drink a lot of coffee. I did consider trying to give it up a couple of years back… but half way through my first day of “quitting” I got a headache and decided giving up was a silly thing to do. Ever since, I have retained my caffeine habit without shame. Besides, there are worse things I could be addicted to. Like crack cocaine…
Anyway, I digress.
I spent much of December dropping
subtle hints to my other half about wanting a Nespresso machine for Christmas (and no, not just because I have an uncontrollable crush on George Clooney). When I say, I “dropped hints,” I mean I said things like:
- Would love one of those Nespresso machines… but it’s December. Probably shouldn’t buy myself anything in case people are struggling for ideas for me for Christmas.
- Have you got my Christmas present yet? Was looking at those Nespresso machines again earlier
However, hints are wasted on him. So, two days before Christmas when he sent me a text message asking me to inspire him as he was out of ideas about what to get me for Christmas, I told him outright… Nespresso machine please.
So, it wasn’t a huge surprise when
Micky Santa left one under the tree for me. What was a surprise is that he got me the same one as the one we have in the Tecmark office.
And needless to say, I have been happy ever since. So easy to use… so tasty. There’s nothing quite like a morning kicked off with a strong espresso.
Best. Christmas present. Ever.
