The The Purging Lutheran is falling behind on my coffee makers. If you have been following The Purging Lutheran since its pre-historic Tumblr days you are well aware of the seemingly dozens of coffee makers that have come and gone through my kitchen. That address again…
As long as you’re visiting there, try
This didn’t mean to be an advertisement for my other failed ventures but I had no advertising budget for them so why not give them a free ride?
What about those coffee makers, Bub?
Yes, coffee makers. My Sweet Rib, The Lad, Our Marta, and I are yuge coffee drinkers. So much so that we go through a ‘maker about every 8 to 16 months. You might very well be on your first coffee maker from your wedding. If so, you have a drinking problem. Drink more coffee. The more you drink, the more coffee beans you go through, the lower the price of beans is for the rest of us. That results in a happy America.
This coffee maker is from a while back. In the next few days, I will purge the ‘maker sitting on our counter. The timer has gone belly-up and doesn’t brew as long as it needs so we have to keep pressing the GO button to finish the pot. And who wants to wait for coffee? No one. That’s who. Or whom. Or whomever.
Nothing but a Wisp of Fog
And now I have a word for you who brashly announce, “Today—at the latest, tomorrow—we’re off to such and such a city for the year. We’re going to start a business and make a lot of money.” You don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. You’re nothing but a wisp of fog, catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing. Instead, make it a habit to say, “If the Master wills it and we’re still alive, we’ll do this or that.”
As it is, you are full of your grandiose selves. All such vaunting self-importance is evil. In fact, if you know the right thing to do and don’t do it, that, for you, is evil.
