Bad Habit #1 Reheating Coffee

I have an admittedly bad habit. I like to microwave my coffee.

Bad Habit #1 Reheating Coffee

Yes, you heard me right. I’m not so busy I forget to drink my coffee and have to heat it up. I just enjoy heating up a cup of coffee in the afternoon.

My husband doesn’t really like this. And our marriage nearly ended the first time he “cleaned up” the kitchen by rinsing out the 1/4 full pot. (Total exaggeration but I was pretty miffed.) Nope. Don’t do that.

There’s something in me that just looks forward to getting home from a long day at work and heating up a welcoming mug of cafe. Despite what people think.

Well, now that it’s getting to summertime temperatures I have to remember to put the leftover coffee in the fridge. Not because it’s going to go bad sitting out at room temperature for a few hours. No, not that. Let’s take a closer look at the image shall we? With a little black and white for effect.


I am so thankful said fly was discovered before I set to drinking my “welcome home” beverage.

And boy did my husband laugh when I cried my sad story over the phone to him later. Boy oh boy.

  • Everything about this post grosses me out šŸ™‚

  • Heh. Terribly sorry Cassy but I am SOOOOO happy to have this awful secret off my chest šŸ˜‰

  • Ummmm gross. Warmed up old coffee is disgusting. I’ve tried. I use it to make iced coffee if it needs to be used.

  • Hmm, maybe at the end of the work day when I’m setting up the coffee pot for the next morning I shouldn’t dump out all the old stuff but set it aside for you to have the next day… šŸ™‚

  • heh thanks Mike…

  • You’ll never guess what EXACT beverage I am drinking while I decided to peruse your blog. Nuked coffee soul sisters?! I think so. šŸ™‚

    We used to store our microwave way in the depths of our basement because our kitchen was just so small, and it turns out, I didn’t ever end up using it much. In fact, I used to heat up coffee in a small pot on the stove. I guess I was desperate. Sometimes I’d boil it over, and even with the slightly burnt taste, I still drank it. Call me crazy. Or a busy mom who needs a caffiene jolt to rev up a day. šŸ™‚
