This morning I couldn't figure out why the coffee maker wasn't working. I would leave the kitchen and come back thinking the pot would be filled, it wasn't, so I would leave and return shortly to see if the coffee maker had made any progress. I quickly became frustrated, glaring down at the coffee maker. Coffee maker plugged in. Coffee in filter. Green light on. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Then I realized, somehow I had missed the whole put-water-in-coffee-maker-then-put-coffee-pot-under-coffee-maker step. The darn thing was still sitting in the kitchen sink from yesterday morning.
