 Coffee. Nectar of the Gods! My own anti-zombie serum.

The bane of my mornings for the past several months has been the damn coffee maker. You see, I am very particular about my coffee cups. I have tried all kinds! Metal cups mess with the taste of the wonderful morning syrup while most plastic ones are just designed wrong (won’t fit in the car’s cup holder or just not tall enough).

I have even tried Longaberger cups. This cup should be the top choice. Everything else they have is top shelf! It’s tall enough, made of ceramic so the taste is unaffected, it fits fine in a cup holder, and you would think that that would work. Its flaw is in the design of the lid. Every time you take a drink, just a trickle will escape running down the side. Picture the person trying to drink from this thing having to constantly lick the sides to prevent spillage while driving or in a meeting. Plus it breaks if dropped. FAIL :(

Of all the places to go and the cost that has been spent in search for my holy grain, I find the perfect cup at Wal-Mart for $1.99. I bought 3 of them! It’s tall, doesn’t break, leak, microwavable, and is cheap. So now I have my cup.

The only problem now is that the cup is too tall for the coffee maker. SOB! Tilting it will not let me get the cup full. So I had to get yet another normal size cup and fill it up. My mornings shouldn’t be so complicated!

Enter Will. William Wimberly: sinner, saint, father, salt of the Earth, all around good guy, and human.

Today, Will is no human. He is a God for the day. Will fixed the problem with the coffee maker that plagued my coffee cup. It was a very, very simple fix. By removing the REMOVABLE trey underneath, I can now fill my wonderful TALL coffee cup without hassle.
I understand that this is a big deal about nothing to most people.  Kim and I laugh at how silly I have been about this but it’s the little things in life that make life go smoothly.  Maybe it just took an extra set of eyes to solve this issue.  No one else could figure it out (they may have not known it to be a problem).  If you know me, you know that I am not a morning person in any stretch of the wild imagination.  I AM A ZOMBIE IN THE MORNING WHO CANNOT THINK BEFORE COFFEE AND I WILL EAT YOUR BRAINS WITHOUT IT. 
I just wanna give credit where it’s due.  Thanks Will!
Will Power
