Coffee Redemption

The Man sat back and looked at his computer screen with a satisfied grin on his face. I knew what that meant. "What have you done?" I asked. He read the witty but mischievous comment he had just deposited on someone's Facebook post. "Oh, you have been evil," I told him. "But there's a way for you to redeem yourself." "There is?" he said hopefully. "Yes, there is." I assured him. "You can go get the coffee." The Boy laughed at my trickery. In retaliation, The Man told The Boy of how evil I can be when it comes to coffee, with a story about how I explained to him that making coffee was his duty according to the Bible. "She told me it's in the New Testament," he told him. "He Brews." I sent him to the kitchen, not knowing if the coffee was ready since I hadn't heard it gurgle its last. But I really needed it, and sometimes you just have to go on faith.

There is always a reason. Of course you also know from the New Testament that Jesus and His disciples drove a Honda. "They were all together in one Accord.

And King David rode a motorcycle - his Triumph was heard throughout the land.

LOL. He Brews, LOL. Nice one. I love my coffee and need my coffee. I am so glad I have the Keurig machine, I don't have to wait in the morning for my first cup of coffee.

I need a full pot in the morning. I need to get a new cord for my percolator, this auto drip takes sooooo long.

@Rollo1 Then maybe it is time to think about a Keurig. I love getting my coffee in less than a minute in the morning. I usually have at least two cups, well too mugs of coffee.

When it comes to coffee, no joke is too bad or too old to tell.

@jaboUK A part of my rebellion against technology is using words to describe my emoticons (winking smiley face emoticon).

I think most jokes only work in their own language, unless they are sight gags, but I know what you mean, since the names and translations wouldn't have the same sounds but different meanings. I guess word play doesn't translate well. The Man found a German joke funny this morning, as one of German friends posted a picture of a man on a motorcycle with this writing on the back of his jacket: Wenn Sie das lesen k├Ânnen, ist meine Frau runtergefallen. I translated for The Man who found it very amusing.
