The most wonderful thing in all of creation is the Keurig. I know this statement may upset the Apple Gods who dwell in Mac-Land, but I will risk it. I can FaceTime with them later and say 10 “Hail MacBooks”, if that is not good enough I guess they can burn me at the stake as a heretic. At one time I would have said that the iPad was the most wonderful thing in creation, but I have seen the light and now know the peace and joy that can only be attained from owning a Keurig.
When I wake up in the morning I can stumble blindly into my kitchen and hit the button. As long as I remembered to put a cup under the spout within seconds I will have a steaming cup of joyous-wakefulness in the form of English Breakfast Tea. If I forget about the cup I will have a mess on the counter that will still wake me up, but I will not have the joy until the next cup finishes brewing.
It does not matter if I want tea to go with my morning bagel and hummus, coffee to give me the extra energy to finish cleaning my house, or hot cocoa to enjoy wrapped up in a blanket on the couch watching a movie, my Keurig can meet the demands of my changing whims. This makes the Keurig better than a significant-other, because as we all know changing whims seem to cause them to malfunction. In that same line of thinking if the Keurig should malfunction it has a warranty and I have yet to find a significant-other where you get that kind of consumer protection.
It would be a better world if everyone owned a Keurig. It should be required by law. When you go into a government office they should check to make sure you own one just like they check to make sure you are registered to vote. World Leaders should have a Keurig loaded with Camomile Tea sitting next to their consoles that launch weapons of mass destruction. If they brewed a cup before they launched a strike it could calm them down and prevent a disaster. If that failed maybe we could get lucky and they would spill water or tea into the console and short it out, disaster still prevented.
