#sol20 March 5 A Slice of Apology

Slice of LIfePart of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge!
I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂


Twice this week I have gotten a coffee in the afternoon, not finished it, put it in the fridge and heated it up in the morning. Then I can pretend I was actually up early enough to stop for coffee.


This morning I remembered I had an almost full Dunkin in the fridge, and I was so excited.

Then my husband said, “Oh! Just like Nanny!”

Oh. Yep. Just like Nanny.

It used to drive me crazy. My mother-in-law kept old coffee in the pot in the fridge, or sometimes on top of the fridge. She would offer us yesterday’s coffee, and we’d inwardly roll our eyes and decline.  She’d say, “Are you sure? I can micro it.” But instead, we’d go run and grab a fresh coffee.

She’s gone now. But I think I owe her an apology.

  1. LOL. My mother-in-law did the same thing! I haven’t gotten there yet, but if I do, i”m sure my husband will remind me!

  2. The adventures of growing older and becoming our parents and our Nanny! It’s a comforting feeling knowing we are conducting ourselves similarly to the ones who gave us a start.

    Cheers to Nanny! Reheat and repeat in her honor!

  3. Isn’t it funny to see what traits, characteristics, and idiosyncrasies we get from others? I have one from my mother that involves eating popcorn – this may be a potential slice!

  4. SO funny. I also save coffee and microwave it warm! My mother in law saved tea bags, dried and reused them. A Depression skill she could not let go. I should blog about it!
