This morning our espresso machine wasn’t working. You can only imagine the fit of despair this threw me into, but fortunately that didn’t stop me from trying to fix it. First, I unplugged it. I counted to five. Then I plugged it in again. It didn’t work, so I unplugged our tea maker. What does the teamaker have to do with the espresso machine, you ask. I don’t know. At the time it felt right.
