Study Shows Coffee Evaporates Faster Than Other Liquids

Dear Kid,

There is a very interesting phenomenon going on in our house. Not to worry—I’m on the case and I’m sure I’ll solve it eventually.

But in the meantime we have A Situation.

Coffee, the finest organic suspension ever devised. ~Star Trek: Voyager DearKidLoveMomCoffee evaporation is not like normal evaporation.

Let me explain.

I’ve noticed that very often I will make a cup of coffee (have I told you how much I adore my little Keurig? I know it’s not great for the environment and I feel badly about that. But not enough to give up my adorable little Keurig that I adore. Did I mention the adoring part?).

Where was I?

Right. Very often I will make a cup of coffee, carry the steaming mug over to the kitchen table, read a section of the newspaper, pick up the mug—and discover that IT’S EMPTY!

This is a particularly interesting phenomenon because I am generally the only one in the house who drinks coffee.

Puppy: I would drink coffee if you let me
Me: Coffee is very bad for puppies and you can’t reach that high.
Puppy: Look who’s making short jokes…

I am considering starting a research study to see if this evaporation anomaly happens in other places or just in our house.

Right after I go make myself another cup of coffee.

Love, Mom

    • Does that involve measuring and washing the basket thingamy? Guilt might be better….
