disaster averted

My coffee pot flubbed up this morning. Just two cups were brewed and the rest of the pot wouldn’t drain on through. WTH?! I didn’t panic. I didn’t stomp or cuss. I talked to it nicely, and said, “Why won’t you make coffee?!” Then I calmly opened up the top of the coffee machine and jiggled the carafe atop the warmer, like any sane person would do. The best part is, it worked! Woo hoo! Pouring my first of two mugs now. *whew* Yes, I talk to inanimate objects. Don’t you?!
