A Long Story About Coffee

My story starts way back here. I have had my Senseo coffeemaker for over two years and I have been very happy with it. The Senseo brand of coffee pods kind of suck, but that is ok because Target has a brand of coffee pods which are great. Until they discontinued them a few weeks ago. This development threw me into a tizzy of epic proportions. What do I do now?? First, I went to all the local Targets, even drove to Coeur d'Alene, and found only one box of pods. This bought me a couple of weeks to figure out what to do. I gave the matter considerable thought. There are a lot of coffee pods on the internet, but I do not want to depend on the internet and the mail for my coffee. Plus, the shipping drives up the price per pod. So I started looking at other single serve coffee makers. I liked the Keurig one, but the price of the K-Cups is a bit higher than pods. I was on the fence, but then three things happened.
1) Costco started stocking the Keurig machine for $10 less than everyone else, plus they include like 3 months worth of K-Cups.
2) It was my birthday which gave me an excuse to buy something nice for myself.
3) I got a gift card to Bed Bath and Beyond, which sells a wide variety of K-Cups. Plus I have a ton of those 20% off coupons you get in the mail from them. This brings down the price of the K-Cups to mail-order pod levels.
So guess what the UPS guy brought yesterday? So far I have had three cups of coffee from the K-Cup variety pack and I am so wired that I woke up at 4:30am and couldn't get back to sleep on a Saturday which sucks but that is ok, I will just have another cup of coffee! I think I will have one right now!
If you're looking for me, I'll be on the ceiling.
