Ohhhh COFFEE !

Decades later; I can still remember waking up at my grandmothers house to the smell of it percolating on the STOVE :slight_smile:

But for some reason, “mommy” wouldn’t allow me to have any . . .

Back at home, mom’s coffee didn’t even have a scent … It’s been decades & I’ve still never had a drop ! :neutral_face:

Evil point:
If folks are using markdown’s ordered lists (as lots are), the order of the numbers isn’t taken into account.

So a list that is actually

  2. Red
  3. Green
  1. Blue
  5. Purple
  5. Yellow

Would display as:

  1. Red
  2. Green
  3. Blue
  4. Purple
  5. Yellow

And nobody would know that your favourite colour was actually Blue and that you disliked Purple and Yellow equally.

Yes, I know that we should all go by the displayed order, so as not to break @Chaz1’s fine game. I just had an geeky/evil moment.
