Breville Cafe Roma Espresso Maker

by Wootbot

“Ralph, you look so sad! What is it?”

“Aw, Pete, it’s… well, you remember Maggie?”

“The woman you met at DragonCon?”

“Yeah! Last week she came over, and we were talking about Kirk and Picard, and I said that if Kirk was on the SDF-1 he would have been able to get them home faster and in better condition so that the later Protoculture invasion would have failed, but Maggie said that Picard, in the same situation, would have negotiated a treaty with Breetai that allowed the Invid access to Monument City and so made it easier for the Expeditionary Force to directly attack the Masters.”

“Ralph, I have to say, I have no idea what any of those words mean.”

“It means we were getting along great until she wanted a drink and all I had were a couple of Capri-Suns!”

“I understand that part, Ralph. What you need is a Breville ESP8XL Cafe Roma Espresso Maker!”

“Pete, you know I can’t afford that! The Ranma½ lithograph collection goes on sale this week!”

“It’s okay, Ralph. This Breville ESP8XL Cafe Roma Espresso Maker is refurbished, so it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. And don’t worry if you’ve never made a complex coffee drink recipe before. The Thermoblock heating system will force you to have a reasonable, average cup of coffee each and every time, no matter how hard you practice!”

“So I just grab some instant coffee and pour it in?”

“Oh, lord, no, Ralph! You wouldn’t put your tsurugi on a wakizashi stand, would you? A good coffee drink requires a well ground, well roasted bean! Too bad we won’t have any of those for sale here today!”

“But they’d have them at my local coffee shop, right?”

“Now you’re thinking, Ralph! And you know who works at a coffee shop in town?”

“Maggie! Oh, Pete, maybe this year I’ll finally be able to cosplay The Elongated Man with a Sue Dibny at my side!”

“Yeah, really, you might as well be speaking Latin to me now.”

“It means thank you, Pete! Thank you so much!”

“Oh, well then! Don’t thank me! Thank the Breville ESP8XL Cafe Roma Espresso Maker! And good luck, Ralph!”
