Really? We’re This Lazy Now?

February 27, 2012

Just saw this pop up in my Google Reader. I weep for the future, I really do.

Is it really that hard to add ice and maybe some milk to cold coffee?

    I need this. Now. Unfortunately, I am too lazy to go to the store.

    I think this is less a laziness issue more a recipe memorization problem. Too many components to recall.

    Ya, Jay, I agree. HOW IN TUNKET can one remember coffee, ice, water and milk? And possibly sweetener too! 🙂

    Hm, go back 50 years…
    “Is it really that hard to cut up a chicken?”
    Go back 50 more years…
    “Is it really that hard to slaughter and pluck a chicken”?

    Or, canned stock has been around for decades and is as easy to make as iced coffee. Nothing new!

      I’m one of those purists who makes her own stock. I draw the line at plucking chickens, though.

        So think, 50 years from now… “Ugh, direct cerebral-gustational interface? Is it that hard to insert a feeding tube?”

    I don’t drink coffee so I cannot comment on this but I kind of put that in the category of pre-mixed cocktails (i.e., Cosmopolitan in a bottle) in a bottle. Laziness aside, I would want to make MY WAY, not pre-mixed.

      Shannon, I agree with you.

      We drink a LOT of iced coffee in the summer. We store a concentrate (made with instant coffee) in the fridge and dilute it as necessary. If we want it au lait, we add milk and sweetener.

      That way, we can have it according to our standards of the moment and it’s nearly as convenient as the premixed things.
