The greatest coffee maker never invented.

You know that obnoxious, painful sound your alarm clock makes in the morning? That wish-you-had-a-hammer “BEEP, BEEP, BEEP”? (Maybe yours is a “BUZZ, BUZZ, BUZZ”. Either way, it’s evil.)

And have you noticed that your coffee machine makes the same awful beeping sound when your brew is ready? Why? Why should the ugliest sound of the morning be used to signify the most glorious moment of the morning?

This is where my genius comes in. Genius may be a strong word but it’s my blog so we’re going with it. What if this sound came out of your kitchen when the day’s liquid love was ready?

Or maybe this.

Or, if you’re more of a traditionalist . . .

Feeling festive?

I could keep going but you get the idea. Greatest invention ever, yes? Now that I’ve come up with the idea please feel free to send me large sums of money for research & development – and whatever else happens when you invent things. What song do you want yours to play? I’m accepting requests.
