I stopped by Trader Joe's on my way home tonight, determined to purchase something other than frozen pizzas and brownie mix. I picked up a tin of coffee and proceeded to use the store grinder since I don't have one at home. I happened to look into the tin before reclosing the lid, and I noticed a little piece of string poking out of the coffee grounds. I reached in to pick it up, and it just kept coming. It ended up being a four-inch long, hairy, woolly-looking string. In my coffee!! Yuck!

Needless to say, I grabbed my pizza and brownie mix and booked it on out of there.

I'm thinking about switching to tea.

Hey, Where did you get your name Cavatica? From the spider named Charlotte? That's my favorite story of all time! By the way, you do know me!

Wow, things are heating up over here. Were cavatica and anonymous separated at birth? How will Charlotte react when she finds out? Will the Dutchess' pertussis prevent her from getting it on with the maƮtre d'?

I don't know if going off coffee is such a hot idea, cavatica. But it does put me in mind of a nice little epidemiologic study to examine how the quality of your writing changes when you switch to tea... let me know if you go through with it.
