We used to have an account executive at WBKR that gave me grief (all in good fun, of course,...I think) whenever I'd make coffee.

Now, it's not that she MINDED me making coffee. I mean, SOMEbody's gotta make the coffee, right?

No, it's what I did as soon as I started making the coffee.

And last week I pulled that old trick out of mothballs. Now, obviously, it isn't re-inventing the wheel to use an empty coffee pot to "trade up" so that you can get your coffee sooner than usual.

But it IS a good tip for those of you who could be in a hurry and have never thought of it before.

I mean, somebody, at some point, MUST have said, "Hey, why don't we SLICE the bread?"
