The best cup of coffee I’ve ever had was a happy accident. I drink the coffee the guys make at work. It’s just plain ol’ Maxwell House, and we all like it just fine. While many of my coworkers drink their coffee with sugar and regular creamer, I have special dietary needs. The regular creamer they use has way too many carbohydrates in it for me to enjoy.
A few days ago, I was adding creamer to my coffee when the lid popped off the can and plopped into my cup. The entire remaining contents of the creamer gushed into my cup of coffee causing the lid to dance around like a bobber in a choppy lake. I’m guessing roughly half a cup of creamer made its way into my Wonder Woman coffee cup that morning.
I certainly wasn’t going to waste a perfectly good cup of coffee or all of that creamer. If I had thrown it out, I would have been forced to suffer through the day without any coffee. I wasn’t prepared to do that to myself or my co-workers. I tentatively tasted my heavily creamed beverage, and sat back in surprise. I had just created the best coffee I’ve ever had in my life. It was even better than some expensive brews I’ve enjoyed at fancy coffee shops.
Sometimes life throws us little obstacles. How we deal with those obstacles is our choice. I’m happy that I decided to have a little coffee with my creamer. Thank you for reading Ozarks Maven!
