The Bell and Coffee

This morning I had an epiphany. Every single morning, I get so upset with my husband because of the way he stirs his coffee. Ding-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling, so fast and almost violently, waking people up when he does it. This morning, I realized why it upsets me so much - it sounds so similar to The Bell at our school, Fanda. Every morning they rang that bell to wake everyone up, DING-A-LING-A-LING-A-LING-A-LING-A-LING-A-LING!!!!!!!! And rang it for breakfast, and for school, and for snack, and back to school, and for lunch, and back to school again, and when school was finished, and for dinner, and for shower time, and for bed!
It was always such a jarring sound, and seemed to go on for so long, especially early in the morning.
My husband, the way he stirs his coffee, gives me that jarring sensation every single day. I think we will need to speak about this.


  1. give him him one of those rubber coated spoons you use for feeding babies and let him use that to stir his coffee! Or ask for "James Bond" Coffee - "shaken, not stirred"! :-)

  2. Mat, HA HA!! Love your ideas. =)
