Rest in pieces
We awoke this morning to find that our beloved coffee maker had expired sometime during the night.
Dear Black & Decker VersaBrew,
You have been a good and loyal friend for the last four years. When we moved into this house you were just a youngster. You brewed your first pot in this house. You have given us coffee daily, sometimes twice, without complaint. You have tolerated my less than stellar cleaning schedule and even survived your wild leap out of my soapy hands which landed you in the floor.
I knew you were feeling badly when you began to groan when asked for a pot of coffee. You began to chug and your desire to retire was coming across loud and clear.
Sadly, your replacement is not of your model. I suppose you have been upgraded by a new and flashier version of your very nifty self.
Rest in pieces my friend. You will be missed.
