Cousin Elly

Cousin Elly, a blonde, is the world's worst at getting instructions mixed up.
When she got married her husband bought her one of those fancy, electric coffee makers.
It had all the latest gadgets on it.
Salesman Riley carefully explained how everything worked;
how to plug it in, set the timer, go to bed, and upon rising, the coffee is ready.
A few weeks later Elly was back in the store
and Riley asked her how she liked the coffee maker.
"Wonderful!" she replied,
"However, there's one thing I don't understand.
Why do I have to go to bed every time I want to make a pot of coffee?"
