Ten Months of Hibernation: Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

1. Elf to the mom and dad: It's January, it was a tough holiday season. When I said I need a drink, water wasn't exactly what I had in mind.

2. Elf to family: Thanks for the aspirin, and for the water. One minor problem . . . you do know I don't have opposable thumbs, right?

3. Elf to the mom and dad: I kept your kids in line for a month and all I get is a bottle of water? Where are my holiday gifts? I could use a new pair of pajamas.

4. Elf to the family: Phew, feels good not to be hanging from chandeliers and sitting on the edge of the potty for a change. Ahhhh, to stretch my legs again. Wait, you're not going to try to shove me back in that box in the attic, are you? Nooooooo . . . this is the thanks I get?

5. Elf to himself: Another holiday season in the books. Feels like I just spent a month playing The Amazing Race, Homebound Edition. And I'm pretty sure I won. Wonder what the prize will be. Bet it's 10 months of hibernation. I could use it.

For today's recipe I'm sharing a spiced, spiked coffee. Perfect for an Elf on the Shelf after a hectic holiday season or for mom and dad on any cold winter day:

Spiced Coffee

Ingredients (makes 3):
4 cups brewed coffee
3 ounces Cinnamon Roll Vodka
2 ounces Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
1 ounce Amaretto
whipped cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 tsp ground cloves 

OPT: milk, half and half or creamer to taste

*Mix the vodka, whiskey and Amaretto into the brewed coffee. Pour into 3 mugs. Top with whipped cream.
*Mix the cinnamon and ground cloves.  Sprinkle over the whipped cream.
*OPT: I mix the whipped cream into the coffee when drinking, which lightens the coffee. If you prefer a lighter coffee, mix in your choice of milk, half and half or creamer.


  1. Now that's my kind of coffee! I could definitely drink that. It's the end of January...shoot the elf lol!

  2. The Elf on a Shelf is such a creepy dude! I could so use that coffee at work right now. It's almost 4pm on Friday so a little caffeine and booze would do the trick!

    1. Wish I delivered to NYC. Maybe the Elf will bring it to you, he's not busy these days.

  3. There is a thing called Cinnamon Roll Vodka? Where has this been hiding?

    1. Oh girl, you gotta get out more. To the liquor store, that is, LOL.

  4. Forget the elf...8 oz of alcohol to 4 oz of coffee. This should be called coffee flavored alcohol! Whew, girl after my own heart. Let's have a few cups this morning!!

    1. I think you better put on your glasses, my friend. 6 oz alcohol to 4 cups (32 oz) coffee in this recipe, which serves three. Although there are certainly days when I would prefer it your way!
