This is a picture of the French Press (or plunger for my friends down under) that I broke about a week ago. It was drawn on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper and color with Photoshop. I wonder if the French really invented the French Press? What if it had been invented by someone in Toad Suck Arkansas. Would it be called a Toad Suck Press? In any case I miss my plunger coffee. I have a regular old coffee maker but it's just not the same. Maybe this is why I have done no work this week. Thank goodness the holidays are coming. Perhaps some nice person will get me a new French Press as a gift. (hint, hint) Until then I guess I will just have do deal with bland, weak coffee. Wow! I don't know when it happened but I became a coffee snob. Do you love coffee? Will you love me?
