Coffee Trauma

It's no secret that I love coffee. Seriously, if the world as we know it ended tomorrow, I would be fine. Except...Lack of coffee would be a major issue.

I'm not a fan of pink, but if my kids couldn't read, I would so own this cup.
But I digress...

I can make a cup of coffee last for a while, so I was sipping away innocently over the course of the afternoon.
In the
very
last
drink
What should I spit out?
A spider.
I'm pretty sure it only had three legs too. Which means...Ew!

The next day I only had one cup of coffee.
It was like some terrible and traumatic, (yet effective) form of aversion therapy.
In fact, at this very moment, I am drinking tea.

  2. Such a pretty cup :)
    It's the old apple joke, what's worse than finding a worm in your apple - half a worm.
    Adulteration is very good aversion therapy just not for things you love. I'm sure you'll recover. Coffee lovers rarely give up on their addiction :)

    1. DelFonte,
      I most certainly shall recover! Coffee is far to important to give up over one little spider. Or what's left of one little spider anyways...

  3. lil, I do not know if you have the stink bug apocalypse where you live, but have for quite awhile here. Two winters ago,The just hubby at the time, 2 teenage boys and myself were sitting on our bed watching a movie. We were all having a snack and I choose cereal (coco crispies...see where this might be going...lol) I thought a piece of cereal feel down my cleavage and picked it up and popped it in and started to chew.....Oh s**t it was not cereal!!! I chewed 4 dang times before I started to scream...Hubby puts His hand out and says spit it out!! I crunched that sucker up.....much to the hysterical laughing of all three of them and me in the bathroom scrubbing my mouth out for 10 minutes. Hope that helps some, just one leg?...maybe?.....the whole dang nasty bug......? I think I'll go brush my teeth....lol

      lol--I must admit that your spider/clothing escapade crossed my mind as I typed this out.
      I felt for you, I really did...But that didn't prevent me from laughing.

      And yea, nearly traumatized my youngest by running around spitting and freaking out lol.

  9. Now I know why I stopped drinking coffee all those years ago.

    My spider story includes, about 400 pink/blue and yellow spongy curlers (you know the ones we used to wear in our hair all those years ago) thrown at it to get it off the ceiling, an overturned garbage can to capture it, and a complete set of encyclopedia Brittanica (purchased from a door to door salesman) on top of the garbage can to contain it.

    My sisters and I then closed the door to wait for our Daddy to get home. 5 hours later- when he walked in the door and opened that room to rescue us from that spider, he cleaned up all the curlers, put the encyclopedia's back on their designated shelf and slowly picked up the garbage can to reveal that "creature" that scared the living daylights out of us.

    Guess what was there?

    NOTHING.

    You think you have issues?

    1. faithful,
      lmao!
      Forgive me--I couldn't help it.
      Me? Issues? nope, uh uh, never!

      Seriously though, there's nothing worse than saving some horrid creature for late, only to discover that it has just gone "poof"!

      When I was 3 or 4, my mom stepped on a scorpion. She smashed it and left it under the bottom of a jar to show my dad when he got home home. You guessed it, there was nothing there when he looked.

  10. Oh my flipping GAWD! Spiders are like my kryptonite. That would have been the last ever cup of coffee...I would forever have that leggy wiggly feeling when I sipped - blech. Daddy is the spider slayer in the house....but he could not do anything with that - shudders - I'm going to have nightmares.....

    (((hugs)))

      I don't think that anything can truly cure me of my coffee addiction, though it has slow my intake just a bit.

  12. Ack Lil. As a kid I once picked a pear from our backyard tree and was eating it...only to find that after a bite there was HALF of a worm coming out of it! To this very day I must cut pears up into quarters and inspect them thoroughly before taking a single bite.

    Okay, so how about the Starbucks kind of cup with a lid?

    1. Susie,
      oh those squicky moments that stick with you forever just suck! I think it's perfectly reasonable to continue inspecting pears!

      AH yes, a cup with a lid has been suggested lol. Not a bad idea actually...
