|"Come with me coffee if you want to live!"|
Our coffee pot broke today, and the only thing going into our coffee cups were tears. We are a family who enjoys drinking coffee...especially Community Coffee. So when the coffee pot breaks it is a must to go to the store to replace it that day. Brody and I picked a new one out at Target. I thought all was well with the world again. Until it came time to throw the old one away. I will give the the play by play of what happened next.
Brody, "What are you going to do with the coffee pot?"
Ryan, "We're going to throw it away."
Brody, "Can't we keep it?"
Brody, "PLEASE DON'T THROW IT AWAY!"
Ryan, "We can't keep things that are broken."
Brody, "Can we just keep it in the attic?"
Ryan, "No, we are not hoarders."
Brody, "BUT PLEASE!" ***This is when tears begin to flow.
Brody, "BUT IT MADE THE BEST COFFEE EVER!"
Ryan & Cristy, "Brody, we cannot keep it."
Brody then grabs the coffee pot as if saving it and says, "COME WITH ME COFFEE IF YOU WANT TO LIVE!" He runs with all his might while crying to his room.
I go to his room and explain once again why we do not need to keep the coffee pot. Brody is sobbing over the coffee pot. Brody says, "He made the best coffee ever so I'm keeping him forever."
|"I'm not letting go! I'll stay up all night and protect it!"|
Of course one day when I tell him this story, he will then owe me a cup of coffee! I have earned it! I will in return buy him one too because I love him for making our lives never have dull moment. Brody seizes the day everyday!
