Eternal September

Mary: Make some coffee.

It's a little bit late for coffee now, but you've always been one to prepare, especially if you'll be entering the printout data by hand.

The same year you got your name, your father bought a drip brewer just like this one. He was almost mad at you when you tore out the insides and broke open one of your egg timers to hook them together. The next morning, when he woke up to fresh coffee he didn't have to make himself, that anger left as quickly as it had arrived.

A boy genius you were, at least for a few more months.
