JMR: Here’s what I ate yesterday.
MDM: Okay, I’m gonna write this down.
JMR: I had one entire pot of coffee.
JMR: I had a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich.
MDM: Wait wait wait, I’m sorry, Let me—I’m just on catching up; one pot of coffee. Now a lot of people when they say they had “a cup of coffee” they don’t mean an actual cup. When you say “a pot” you don’t mean a tureen, you mean like a Mr. Coffee Style—
JMR: …Mr. Coffee Style 12 cup pot of coffee.
MDM: You had 12 coffee cups of coffee.
JMR: If you could put 12 cups of coffee in a Mr. Coffee Pot, I don’t know, I’ve never tried. But whatever that Mr. Coffee Pot is.
MDM: Most—just for reference—most drip coffee makers are either 10 or 12 cup models.
JMR: Right: mine is a 10 cup model.
MDM: That’s good, you’re showing restraint.
JMR: So, I had one of those.
MDM: Can I ask you a question? Was it hot when you were drinking this? Was this over the course of a day?
JMR: It was hot.
MDM: But this was before it all burned off? You drank 10 cups of coffee at a sitting.
JMR: Does your coffee maker brew so hot that over the course of the day it burns off like a gas flare on an offshore oil rig?
MDM: I’m sorry to be the one who’s doing—I’m sorry—Yeah, we have a little flame on the top, it looks like very Blade Runner. *Whaaaaaaaaaaaum-kkkhhhhh* We have a Tyrell coffee maker. It’s got giant glasses and an owl.
JMR: Alright, so then I had a peanut-butter sandwich—
MDM: Tannhäuser Gates!
