I have decided to create a new weekly post. This isn’t going to be just any kind of post! It will be a weekly challenge of courage under relentless pressure, of insurmountable cunningness, the ability to stretch cuteness to unthinkable levels, and the personal strength and unorthodox use of wit and determination to achieve my final goal!
What could this monumental weekly challenge be might you ask? What remarkably extraordinary experiment would require such dexterity, such expertise, such proficient aptitude?
Let us reflect upon the birth of this inspirational contemplation!
A few weeks ago, I had tweeted, in my usual devilishly charming fashion, that in order to save money, and to add a bit more thrill and exhilaration to my day, I would fill my coffee cup from random business’s.
This got me thinking… Could I, little innocent me, be so smooth, so shrewd and cunning as to inconspicuously walk into an indiscriminatingly random business and fill my mug with their coffee, in plain sight mind you, without being perceptibly noticed or caught?
Huh! Now that I have the challenge, time to think actual logistics.. Has all the time I’ve spent watching TV and black ops movies been just in vain? Would I be able to a assimilate myself in such a manner as to convince people that I actually belong there? Will I have sufficient technical expertise to functionally understand how to use every type of coffee machine I come across with? Laugh if you will! But it’s a valid concern! Not all coffee machines are alike! Some are simple pots of coffee on a hot plates, there are commercial types with spigots and such, and lets not forget the super extravagant heavily optioned fancy ones! Heck! You need a degree in engineering from MIT to use the espresso machine at the office!
So I ask myself…. Can I take such a risk and accept this challenge? Or will I end up on the 6 o’clock news? I say bring it on! Challenge Accepted!
Every week on a Friday I will post my coffee adventures. I’m still undecided what to name such a unique challenge.
- Coffee Daredevil
- Your Joe to Go
- The Coffee Nabber
- Pkitass Bean and Gone
- See You Latte
- Café I Go Go
- Lock your Latte
I like most of the names but no one title is screaming at me! I think there is a more befittingly unique title out there! If anyone has any suggestions, then please, I’m all ears.
So to recap! Any day between Monday and Thursday the idea is for me to pick a completely random office or business and simply walk in as if I belonged there, austerely find and continue on to their coffee-break room or kitchen and serve myself a nice delicious cup of coffee. I will take a picture of the random business’s kitchen or coffee room as proof. However, I will not post any information of the business, just in case someone that actually works there and isn’t simply pretending to belong there, happens to cross upon my blog. Once my mission is accomplished, I will endeavor to either leave the building with my cup of coffee in hand with a big grin on my face or be caught and humiliated for attempting such an intricately complicated, yet devilishly satisfying, harmless stunt!
I think I should get extra points if I make it all the way to the coffee machine and have to make a new pot of coffee or leave with a pastry in hand.
Please do not attempt this yourself. Attempting this yourself my result in injury or arrest. But if you are crazy enough to do it then don’t forget to take pictures.
