The Universe in a Coffee Cup
I recently had the worst cup of coffee of my life. It was nearly unbelievable, at the very least it was literally extremely difficult to believe. I took a sip of it and just looked at the cup. How could things have gone so wrong? I found myself grappling with the realm of possibility in a coffee cup. It was so bad that I truly had a hard time believing it. I had another sip to confirm I wasn't crazy. How could it such a simple corporate process have gotten so horribly off track? The only feasible explanation I developed to help me keep my sanity was that there was a bag of potting soil (complete with fertilizer) right next to the coffee grounds bag, and a new employee accidentally scooped soil into the coffee filter. Trust me on this one.
