French Pot (Coffee) Story

So, I don’t know what I did wrong tonight but I just made the shittiest pot of coffee I’ve ever made.

Now, my French Pot is small, maybe three cups? I instantly remembered seeing a much larger French Pot at someone’s for dinner one time, can’t remember who with. Like maybe double the size of MY French Pot, six-cupper?

A split second later, I’m seeing a French Pot that’s so big, as the camera pans up from this gigantic 500 gallon French Pot, past the top of the plunger knob, (that happens to have a huge easy chair affixed to the top of the knob), the camera finally settling on this huge fat Sumo Wrestler, who a split-second later is dropped down on top of the Huge Easy Chair/Plunger combo, pressing the coffee instantly.

A few minutes later, as I’m writing this, I’m thinking, “It was really hard to press tonight, I hope I didn’t fuck up my French Pot”. So, I take one more sip of the shittiest coffee I’ve ever made, stop typing this and I’m getting up now to go see if I fucked up my friend’s French Pot (some people steal silverware or ashtrays, I like French Pots).

Nope. French Pot is fine, no damage. Note to self: “Take the plunger apart and clean it like you normally do when it’s hard to press. Oh, and don’t put as much coffee in the pot as you just did. You put in WAY too much”.

P. S. When a French Pot or actually the REAL name, French Press, is used properly, it produces the absolute best that a cup of coffee can be.

P. S. S.  “Another thought, “Don’t make coffee when you are stoned”.

For my faithful readers that are aware that I’m finally working on “The Dead Armadillo” story, like say, a Producer, or a Director, or a Screenwriter or someone or a company that desires to option my novel, you can contact me at any time, night or day. If you are a one of those faithful readers that wish to read and follow my progress as I work on this novel, I will be posting updates as a PDF file on every new post on this website/blog. Here’s the latest of “The Dead Armadillo”


For those of you that would care to get involved with me on this project, as I intend to hire a professional screenwriter at some point, and produce a feature film, I have recently been approved for a KICKSTARTER campaign where you can contribute. Here is the link to the KICKSTARTER campaign.

For those of you that have enjoyed reading my posts and pages, and would like to make a small donation in support of my writing efforts, I have now set up a PayPal account for you to contribute $1 or so, or you can send some homemade Venison Jerky or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups , your donation is 100% tax deductible. The preceding request for donations has always been my half-hearted attempt to make a little money from my writing. A few friends/relatives HAVE sent small donations, I even received some really good Venison Jerky one time from my Cousin Barry. No Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups yet however. I now add that IF you are like-minded and in agreement with this post, please donate to the cause. The monies will be used for things like hiring a professional web designer for the itad-nao website, and related needs. Thank you very much.
