one of these things is not like the other

This morning, spooning beans into the coffee grinder, I chanced upon the little bolt pictured. I'm awful glad I saw it before it wrecked our Krups grinder.

I called Batdorf and Bronson immediately, and they told me to bring it down. I handed it to the manager on duty, noting that when I had taken a tour of the B&B roastery, they showed us a box of bolts, coins, and other sundries that they had pulled out of production. No major freak-out by me, grateful apologies by her.

For being "cool about it," I scored a free pound of coffee and five free drinks. "Get the expensive ones," she said.
