Ok, maybe not a bad habit, but certainly not healthy. Maybe it's a carryover from being rear ended 2 times, . . .

Take the Lid Off!

Recently I made myself a cup of coffee at work with the Keurig machine. However, within a few seconds I heard "drip, drip, drip" and wondered why it was leaking. When I went to the machine to investigate, I realized I had neglected to remove the lid of the travel mug that I was attempting to use.  What a mess I had created for myself. As . . .
