Case of the Missing Half & Half

Mr. Miller and I like coffee. No, that is inaccurate. We adore coffee. Our coffee compatibility is such that we drink it first thing in the morning, reheated at lunch, and then switch to decaf in the late afternoon or evening.

We only part company when it comes to the way we like our coffee “fixed.” As a purist, Mr. Miller likes it black and thick as oil while I like mine mellowed by half & half, a preference which my husband graciously obliges.

The other afternoon, Mr. Miller went to prepare our first cups of decaf that day but was unable to locate the half & half. He scoured every cranny of the refrigerator. Then, he looked in the freezer and cabinets. Nothing. Puzzled, I conducted a parallel search. Again, nothing.

Though lawyers we be, detectives we are not.

The following day when Mr. Miller went to reheat his morning coffee, he discovered the half & half in the microwave where he had left it after reheating it (instead of my coffee) the previous morning. What remained in that little carton was fit for science but not for sipping!
