Coffee Bar is OPEN

 Once upon a time  Manny Mosquito sat staring down in what he thought was and empty coffee cup, he dove in and found himself in yummy, milky and sweet sticky stuff...

while guzzling his morning coffee, along came the lady of the house  and the next thing he knew a huge tsunami of brown coffee poured on top of him filling the cup to the top...

He floated to the top and the last thing he heard before he went across the mosquito rainbow bridge was a loud Shrill SHRIEK..... 

" There's a MOSQUITO in  my coffee"
the reply came
"is it dead? then dip it out and drink the coffee, it's just a mosquito"

this is a True Story with names removed to  protect the innocent and a disclaimer that this is a dramatization with the help of Photo Shop 
The MadSnapper forgot to take a photo..... Woe is Me... 

would you drink the coffee or pour it out?
I poured it down the drain...

I think I'd probably have done the same if it had landed in my tea! ;) Excellent photos - I'm not sure I'd have the presence of mind to grab the camera!

Mmmm, I think I'd throw it away.

I must admit, I would probably just scoop him out and keep drinking it. But a fly? No, I would throw it out. Lady Bug? Drink. Ant? Throw it out. For some reason I think some bugs are 'dirtier' than others. *shrug*

You're hilarious! I would pour the coffee out! No doubt about it! Hubby is home today and we're talking about this as I'm typing.:) Funny stuff!

I probably would have done the same! John has a 3 second rule - like if something hits the floor, if you pick it up fast enough, it won't kill you!!!!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the photo shop you did. I believe I would pour it down the sink!

Madi and Mom said...

Thank goodness that was a dramatization...I was going to say that was one dang gone big skeeter.

ABSOLUTELY NO I WOULD NOT DRINK IT...CAUSE YEARS AGO MY G-MA TOLD ME THAT FLIES WERE NASTY ON YOUR FOOD CAUSE YOU NEVER KNEW WHERE THEY HAD BEEN SITTING JUST BEFORE THE LANDED ON YOUR FOOD...COULDA BEEN HORSE POOPIE. HUGS c

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I would have poured it out, too. 'Cause my overactive imagination would have me visualizing all kinds of places that skeeter might have been visiting!

Linda said...

I would definitely have thrown that coffee away. I think that we shall be getting more stories (illustrated, of course) about Manny Mosquito's many
millions of mates from you, Sandra, I'm sorry to say.

Ginny said...

You did a good job with the pouring coffee, and the mosquito, I don't know how you found such odd images! Mosquito rainbow, I like that! I love your blog best when you tell stories like this of your day to day life with Bob, because we all can relate. And here is my answer. If it was expensive or fancy coffee that involved some work to make, I would have saved it. If I could get up the nerve. Just a cheap quick cup...down the drain.

Ginny said...

Changed my mind, Down the drain mo matter WHAT!! Otherwise I would have fake malaria symptoms for the rest of the month!

Val said...

Well this is why I don't drink coffee!! Darn mosquitos. Funny post, and btw I'd throw the coffee out.

Andrew Fulton said...

Haha! pour me a cup....

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

That coffee would have gone down the drain.I don't share my coffee with critters of any kind.

Ann said...

I have to say it would depend on how badly I wanted the coffee at that moment and how lazy I was feeling.

Miss Debbie said...

This made me chuckle! I'm with you...down the drain!

Cherrie said...

I may have just scooped him out lol

Rose said...

I would pour it out!!!!!

photowannabe said...

I guess I have to go along with the rest of the group and say throw it out.
Love the photoshop job.
Oh yah, the mosquito rainbow too...great images.

Chatty Crone said...

I think I might drink it! Lol

Jan Newman said...

Oh, pour it out. Yes, indeed.

SquirrelQueen said...

Yay, another mosquito bites the dust.

Nope, no way, it would have been poured out. Mosquitoes drink blood and who knows where that mosquito had been.

Kathy said...

Absolutely pour it out. Somebody might have sprayed him with pesticide! They do become immune to it, you know.

Betsy Adams said...

I would have poured it down the drain and started over!!!!!! Don't want NO Skeeters in MY Coffee!!!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Life is never dull around your house, is it? Even if you don't have your camera in hand.

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Never a dull moment in your household I see. LOL

diane b said...

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

Love your creative use of the progarm.

A Quiet Corner said...

LOL! I'd dump it for sure...:)JP

Dee said...

Eva Ason said...

I would probably have pored it out as well. Not sure how many bugs fly into my mouth while running lol only small ones...have to remember to close my mouth
