Not anywhere near it.  Wink
But I do get lots of mail from people scammers who think I have too much money and want me to move to their 'retirement communities'...

"100% Columbian, eh Paw?!", asks Esther Wilroach, as she and her troupe swim on their backs, in perfect circles within my over-sized Wolf Lake mug which is filled with cold coffee and headed to the microwave before I rubbed my eyes.
"Can you put us in for 90 seconds on 'HI', Paw? It's been getting a little chilly..."
That's it, Ms. Cockroaitch!
Talk about pissed off! I just made that coffee yesterday and I THOUGHT I would have it for at least a day, so I could heat up a cup in the microwave, but noooooooooooooo!
Instead of the microwave, I sit the mug down and grab the AJAX Liquid Grease-Busting Dishsoap, which does what the dishwasher doesn't - kills roaches on contact. They are TERRIFIED of the stuff and *I* am a modern-day mass murderer of legendary proportions, as anyone who has read those Roachinese papers would know.
Of course I start with a ring around the mug so there is no escape. The crowd in my cup goes wild! Panic abounds!
"YOU BASTARD!!!",
"Nice last words, Ms. Pottymouth!", I tell her as the next drop hits her square in the face, instantly de-greasing her 'toilet tongue' while simultaneously suffocating her.

Esther Wilroach (August, 2019-October 10, 2019)
Born: Probably near an appliance electrical panel board.
Died: In Paw's 'Wolf Lake' coffee mug  

Goodbye, Esther. Maybe your kids will now stay out of my coffee.

LOL  What?

I think she's been gone for a while now, PaW.

I've got a tongue that's 10 inches long and I can breath through my ears.

WinkUnless you are really, really, REALLY old, oh...say, like ol'Mule, or Thor, or maybe even MrT, you probably wouldn't have known who Esther Williams was. If you came from a nice, upstanding Mob-Family from New Yawk, like Maddy, or had to defend some members of such a family, like CC, you probably knew who she was if you didn't have to call Esther as a 'Credible (Witless) Character Witness'.

Now, about these little deformities you are suffering from...I do indeed have more Ajax Super De-greaser Dish Soap, doncha know...WinkLOL

Goodbye, Esther. Maybe your kids will now stay out of my coffee.

My question is: how did a roach end up in a cup of coffee if you really were planning to reheat it and drink it?

Did you leave it sitting out on the counter uncovered over night?

Bad idea.

Seems like you'd have put it in the refrigerator to avoid just such a possibility.

At least that's what I think I'd have done if I was saving a cup of coffee to drink the following day, though I can't say for sure, as I've never done it.

I have, on the other hand, made coffee with the intention of drinking it ice cold over a period of time. In those instances, I put it in a glass bottle with a screw on cap and kept it in the fridge, drinking it over a couple of days or so.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

On a not particularly similar note... I've got a Walmart story.

I was in Walmartianland yesterday looking for a couple of shelf brackets (more on that in a minute). As I was wandering around over in the vicinity of the hardware section, I walked past a pale, tubby white chick and her boyfriend. The chick was on her cellphone with a gal pal and had her on speaker, so you could hear it about 6 or 8 feet away. Just as I walked past the end of the aisle where they were browsing through the flashlights, I heard her friend's voice over the speaker talking about how much she enjoyed having a flashlight up her ass the previous night and how much she wanted to again.

Walmart... Ermm

As for the shelf brackets, I couldn't find what I was looking for, but there was a young Hispanic kid working a few feet away stocking shelves so I asked him if he knew where I might find some. He grunted something unintelligible and pointed me to the wire rack shelving aisle where I had already looked and not found them. After wandering around a bit more, I retraced my steps scouring the wall where all the hardware stuff was, on the off chance that I might have overlooked them. 

Lo and behold, right exactly where the kid had been working, I found the very same brackets I was looking for, but which the little dumbass pointed me somewhere else to find, even though they were right in front of his face when I asked him.

Walmart... Ermm

My smoke detector decided it wanted a new battery at 5AM and woke me up.  I managed to drop it while fussing with it & just went back to bed... Sleepy
On a good note, I finally finished writing a sci-fi story I started 20 years ago (one day short, actually.)  Just picked up from where I left off (previous record was 5 years from start to finish.)  I can edit the rough draft later, but it's down on paper, which is what counts...  Thumbs Up

Pretty cool, Jimbo.  I could see myself cruising the neighborhood, trying to tap some rich widow. I need a wing man! Wink

I took another pic!  Looks like a Ram truck and a 30s Ford.  If my hip wasn't hamburger, the guy would probably give me a job.

I noticed that Mama was out of her Swiss Miss and Mocha Latte drinks. I thought she might make me a Meat Loaf later today since I picked this stuff up for her.

I almost nailed me some deer. I saw at least 2 of them and hit the brakes. One was a baby. They usually travel in groups so it's a good idea to keep slowing down no matter what you see.
