I have to admit that sometimes conversations overheard between mom and dad are so hilarious. The basis of them are out of this world! You gotta know where I get my sense of humor or lack of humor from – those two humans of mine. This morning the conversation revolved around coffee. So I guess you can say they had coffee talk – snorts.
After I tell you about the conversation, I know you are going to go really? Does it really matter? But I kid you not, the conversation this morning was riveting. That’s right. Riveting between those two. It went like this.
Mom came into the kitchen bright eyed and bushy tail so full of life – NOT. Snorts – my mommy is NOT a morning person. She went straight for her special coffee cup and went to the fridge. She put her creamer in the cup – for those following along it was International Delight White Chocolate Mocha – and two Splenda packs. Then she went to the coffee maker and poured coffee into said cup, sat down at the table and started tasting… trying to become human that early in the morning.
During the time, dad was at the table reading the newspaper and watching mom. Now dad on the other hoof IS a morning person. Hey – opposites attract huh? Now even us anipals in the Hotel Thompson know not to bother mommy until she’s had at least one cup of coffee. Daddy on the other hand through years of training still does not.
He started the conversation not with good morning honey, how did you sleep or I love you. He started the morning by saying, “You fix coffee the wrong way.” WOW – Is there a wrong way? It’s not rocket science, is it? Mom’s one eyebrow over her left eye went up. Shivers – that’s dangerous. That’s the sign that something wicked is fixing to project from her. It can’t be good.
Mom softly said (mom talking softly is another sign of danger might I add), “Really?” Oh WOW dad. You’re also getting one word answers from mom. Danger Will Robinson – DANGER – do you NOT see the signs here? But no, daddy went right on. “Yeah, you’re suppose to put coffee in first and then your condiments. You do it backwards.”
That raised eyebrow came up again while mom took a sip of her coffee. “WOW – what are you the coffee police?” Thud snorts. Go mommy.
“No. You just do it backwards. You put coffee in first and then cream and sugar. It makes sense that way.” Daddy continued on talking about the right way for about five minutes. Mom tuned him out while she petted me and sipped her ‘wrong’ coffee.
Then when dad went for a breath, she stopped him and said, “So does it taste different your way?”
“No. It doesn’t taste different, but…”
“Then does it really matter? I mean, the last time I checked I don’t tell you how to climb into bed the right way. Or how to put your pants on the right way. For that matter, I don’t tell you when to breathe the right way. So, does it really matter how I fix my coffee? Cause if it does, I can start telling you how you do things wrong. Of course, we might be here for a couple of days.”
“Nope, we’re good. Can I get you another cup of coffee while you get ready for work dear? And did I tell you I love you?” and with that he bent over and kissed mommy good morning.
So I guess today’s topic should be, how do you fix your coffee?

O…M…D our parents are EXACTLY the same…right down to the eyebrow lift, except mom does her right eyebrow and the higher the eyebrow the more trouble you are in! BOL! AND mom is NOT (repeat NOT) a morning person whereas dad opens his eyes and will start cracking jokes.
Now, as for the coffee debate…*ahem* mom agrees with your dad!! I know, can you believe it? Butt she says she has good reason because dad used to pour the milk in first too and she says that it would be too milky and too much milk makes for colder coffee – mom likes piping HOT coffee. So mom is a coffee first, milk after girl.

Snorts. Aren’t our humans weird? I can’t believe the conversations between those two! This coffee stuff must be like liquid gold or something to these parents of ours. Strange to say the least. So one vote for dad – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

07/10/2014 at 5:49 am
HAHAHAHAHA…….my parents are like yours only opposite – Mom is a major morning person and Dad is a “grumpasaurus”! Somehow it works……….like with your parents!
07/10/2014 at 10:09 am
It does seem to work doesn’t it? Humans have the strangest conversations – that’s for sure! XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 5:54 am
Wow! Them’s fighting words! Hehehe
07/10/2014 at 10:10 am
Snorts. They are weird. They never fight though. That’s strange too. They’re always happy. So weird those two – XOXO – Bacon
07/11/2014 at 10:46 am
Oh my goodness, that is strange!!! Hehehe 🙂 Big hugs Julia & Oscar ❤
07/10/2014 at 6:10 am
Coffee police better come get me, too, cuz I started today with sugar first then coffee! (I did put the creamer last because I couldn’t tell how much I wanted–not the pro your mom is, obviously!!!) PS, I laughed all the way thru this tale. Too funny! PPS, why did the robot only warn Will Robinson anyway? What about the rest of his family, huh?
07/10/2014 at 10:11 am
Snorts – You know I’ve been watching a lot of that show – go figure huh? on *MY* television 🙂 I’ve wondered the same thing. Why oh why just Will Robinson? XOXO – Bacon
07/11/2014 at 6:16 am
BREAKING NEWS…just heard that season premiere of Sleepy Hollow will be 9 PM Sept 22. Better call dibs on the couch now!!!
07/11/2014 at 8:58 am
Snorts – this is too funny that you should mention this. I saw this last night on mom’s Facebook page. SQUEAL – I so can’t wait. It’s going to be so exciting. We need to host a Sleepy Hollow party that night 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

the real lesson – is never argue with a Mom – because they are ALWAYS right 🙂
07/10/2014 at 10:13 am
Exactly! You would think after 26 years daddy would learn but he hasn’t yet. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 8:15 am
your dad must be a hero… who would start that conversation with a non-morning-mom? the eyebrow-language says more than 1000 words, mostly it says: run for your life! in my crib mom knows always best… and dad better should know that :o)
07/10/2014 at 10:14 am
Exactly brother. I don’t know what it is with my dad. He just hasn’t learned in all of these years. Heck, I’ve only been here close to 3 years and I know mom’s triggers more than he does – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 9:33 am
Hehe…if I have coffee I put half coffee half milk then sugar. I’m not a coffee drinker.
07/10/2014 at 10:15 am
Snorts. Mom has it during the week when she goes to the worky place. Can you believe she doesn’t drink it at all on the weekends? XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 11:43 am
I can believe that, why would you need to be awake on the weekends?
07/10/2014 at 9:56 am
mine…like mommy…. his…like mommy….. ours..no coffee for Scotties !!!! your daddy is lucky to not have a ‘knot’ on his head this morning !!!
07/10/2014 at 10:16 am
Snorts – you are so true my friend. Mommy left the house laughing the morning so all is well here at the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 9:59 am
Was the coffee broken? Why did she have to fix it? Hahahahahahaha. BTW, in Great Britain and British Commonwealth countries the milk, lemon and sugar go in the cup first. The stuff you mom put is just mostly chemicals. But what do I know? we are having your cousin for dinner…
07/10/2014 at 10:17 am
Oh dear – mommy needs to go across the pond to sample real coffee. Maybe she will take me with her. But wait a minute… my cousin. What?! Snorts and squeals. Maybe I’ll just stay right here comfortably at the Hotel Thompson. Yeah, I think I will. Far, far from your dinner plate 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

Your dad likes to live on the edge. You could call this the CLASH of the Coffee Condiments.
07/10/2014 at 11:09 am
Snorts. I like that my friends! XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 11:03 am
Ha! I don’t drink coffee. I drink hot tea. 🙂 I fill up a larger-than-normal mug with tea, put about 20 sugar cubes 😉 into it, and then I let it sit for a bit, and then I forget about it. 😉 I then drink it when Mom says “What about your tea on the counter?” 😉
07/10/2014 at 11:10 am
Snorticles. That’s a plan my friend! I ❤ it. XOXO- Bacon

somebody told the peep once that if you make coffee your mom’s way, you save wasting one of those wooden stirrers or having to wash a spoon. your mom’s green. good for her!
07/10/2014 at 12:41 pm
There you go then. Saving a tree – that’s my mom. 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
07/10/2014 at 2:52 pm
Bwahahahahahahaha… your mommy is freaking hilarious! We LOVE it! 😆 Oh, and by the way, our mommy puts in milk first and then the coffee… this way there’s no need to stir the coffee any more as it’s already thoroughly mixed… 😉 MOL 😆 xx Roxy & Tigerlino ❤
07/10/2014 at 3:03 pm
There you go – see our great moms think alike 🙂 Awesome huh? XOXO – Bacon

Thank you my sweet purr thing. Living at the Hotel Thompson is *never* a dull moment with those two humans of mine. They are always having weird conversation and doing strange things. It seems like every time they go out in public, they get in trouble. So weird! XOXO – Bacon
07/11/2014 at 12:35 pm
OMP, your dad seems to be a theoretically oriented mind. I think he should write a 15-20 pages paper about the scientifically best-founded method of coffee preparation. At least, he could fill his mornings with working on this great work for a while instead of trying to initiate a debate about this highly important topic with your poor neither-awake-nor-asleep mom.
07/11/2014 at 12:54 pm
OMP – you are the best my friend. That is a fabulous ideal. I shall read this to him shortly and inform him of his mission for future coffee talk – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Snorticles my sweet purr thing. My humans are always getting into trouble when they go out alone. At times, they can’t be trusted. That is for sure. XOXO – Bacon
