I blame this partially on Jay's travel coffee mug, which he claims to have "Tardis Technology" (Jay's very own coinage). For those of you who do not know the word "Tardis", allow me to explain. First you must know it is in relation to the show Doctor Who. Since I am not a fan of Doctor Who like the rest of my family, I'm depending on the good folks at Wikipedia to help me out in the definition department. According to their description (roughly), the Tardis (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) is a time machine and spacecraft. It looks like a Police Box and it's interior expands to much larger than it's exterior. Here's a picture:
So now that we all know what a Tardis is, Jay thinks that his travel mug is much larger than it appears to be on the outside, just like a Tardis, and thus holding much more coffee than we expect. Ahhh, the pleasures of living with a sci-fi geek. I'm thinking that some of his business trips are secretly trips to things like Comic-Con. But back to the travel cup, it really is deceiving. Here's a picture of it compared to our coffee pot and one of our regular coffee mugs:
|Deceiving, no? The Tardis Cup takes one and a half of my mugs to fill up. Sneaky.|
Now. Back to the whole Doctor Who thing, since it's on my mind. This is Amy Pond:
|She's a crafty one.|
I'm thinking that I need to give some payback. So, Jay....Alex....if you're reading this, beware. You never know who's lurking around the corner. Nor the hyper-caffeinated person behind her.
*I hope I have not offended any K-cup users. I completely understand the allure of them and how they are perfect for many, many coffee drinkers, and respect your choice in using them. I'm just an opinionated idiot when it comes to my personal caffeine consumption. Another one of my many faults I'm working on.
