I got up super early this morning to knock some last minute code out before a deliverable was due today. So here I am this morning about 4:45am wondering about getting some coffee. Of course it is Portland and there are several places I could just up and go to, one is even within 10 minutes of walking. But I just recently bought a bag of Peet’s Coffee and I’m in the mood for Peet’s Coffee. So I start digging around for filters and all that jazz.
Well all of a sudden I run into a show stopper, I have no creamer, milk, or any other substitute. So now I have to go to the store, but wait. I all of a sudden have a strange developer type idea to use something that already inherits some similar values to sugar AND creamer! I’ll use ice cream!
Thus I have ice cream sweetened and creamed coffee this morning. I must say, if you like the taste of ice cream and coffee without anything in it, this is not a bad combination. I might even try it when I have alternatives! So without breaking my developer mind set for more than 5 minutes I make and have myself a cup of coffee. With that cup of coffee sitting by my side I then continue with the coding trance!
