You Know you're a Physicist When...

...you put the ground coffe beans in the basket, fill the coffee maker with water, set the pot aside (rather than under the dripper), turn the coffee maker on and proceed to go take a shower.

You Know you're a Cat Owner When...

...after mopping a huge puddle of coffee up off the floor you absentmindedly toss the roll of paper towels aside into the hallway and grab the Lysol Sanitizing Wipes (by the way, possibly the best invention of the 21st century) only to later look up and see Nellie, resident huntress, tearing at the roll of paper towels, shredding it with her teeth and raking at it with her back claws.

I think it's going to be a messy day today.

Yea Nellie....good little hunter.

Good luck with that messy day thing. I'm staying out of range. I'll contact you tomorrow. ;)

Oh man, you really made me cringe with that one. I would be mortified if I had brewed a whole pot of coffee without the pot. I thought it was bad enough that I forget pour the water from the pot into the maker.

I did the same thing with the coffeemaker once. My wife saw what was going on and, rather than take immediate corrective action, called me into the kitchen so I could witness for myself what I had done.

And let that be a lesson to me.

Once a month?! At least I learned from my mistake!

The world survived my messy day without the threat of a nuclear winter.

Forgetting the water is small potatoes compared to my absentmindedness!

Ha! That sounds like something I would do! I bet she still made you clean it up.
