So what do I do? Do I take a bus to Kroger on Madison Avenue? It seems silly. If I was a young guy, I’d just walk it. I’m not a young guy. I think most of you know I also walk with a cane. If you don’t know that, I’m not getting into the story as to why. I’ll have you over sometime for a drink and we can talk about it. Let’s just say I can’t and/or won’t walk that relatively short distance.
I could buy coffee filters at Walgreens on Madison. I can walk that easily as it’s close to my apartment. I refuse. I repeat refuse to buy them there. I don’t feel like getting raped on coffee filters at Walgreens.
Ever try to reuse coffee filters? I have. It just doesn’t work. They fall apart trying to get the old coffee grounds out.
I’ve run out of coffee filters in the past. Ever used paper towels in their place? It kind of works, but coffee grounds usually end up in the coffee.
On a side note—white coffee filters or brown coffee filters? When I have extra money, I’ll buy the brown ones but that’s not often. I seldom ever have extra money.
All right—just about done with my second cup of coffee. Screw it. I guess one should never say never. I’m going to walk to Walgreens and buy those damn coffee filters.
One shouldn’t make rape jokes. I don’t like them and I never make them, but there’s one thing an editor I once worked for told me that I’ve never forgotten. . . “If you’re gonna get raped, try to enjoy it.” Walgreens, here I come.
Have a nice day. We’ll be back on Friday.
