'Tis a Sad, Sad Day

It is with a heavy heart that I share sad news. My faithful friend who greets me each morning, puts a sparkle in my eye and a smile on my face so I am ready to begin a new day has gone on to that Great Brewing Land Beyond. 

A shock, but true. As is my normal custom, I measured out the coffee grounds, poured in fresh water, hit the brew button. I turn to continue conversation with my son and several minutes later, it occurs to me I do not hear that wonderful little perk-perk-perk sound, and my nose is not tickling happy with that amazing aroma the morning's coffee brings forth. 

What?! Oh, I must have forgotten to push the button. Nope, button was pushed. 
Is it plugged in? Yes.
Did I remember to add the water? Reservoir is full.
Were these questions necessary? Yes. I do sometimes forget to push the button, or plug it in, or fill the reservoir. (I know, I have issues)
