Variation on the 5 second rule

You know the rule: if something falls on the floor you have 5 seconds to pick it up and eat it before it is considered poor taste. Or white trash. Or glutonous. Or something.

Anyway, I'm on a string of night shifts. I got up this "morning" (aka 1:30 p.m.) and made some coffee. I had exactly enough half and half to make ONE. CUP. OF. COFFEE. One cup of delicious, soul-awakening coffee.

After I mixed this blessed cup of goodness I noticed something floating on the top. Hmmm....what is this? A small gnat?


Is it wrong that I actually considered removing the bug and still drinking my coffee? It was technically within the 5 second guidelines.


  1. for sure I would have! So you dumped it out?

  2. Hi, I just came across your blog and am your new follower.

    If it were me, I totally would've scooped the thing out and then drank the rest of my drink. But that's just me...

    Feel free to check out my blog--I hope it can give you a little chuckle.

  3. I hope you just took out the little bugger and drank that exquisite drink anyway!

  4. Do you know how many bugs are floating in it that you DON'T see? Besides, it's a gnat. Not a roach, a louse, or a fly. Drink up baby!

  5. Just adds protein to the drink.
