Please explain what just happened.

I just got up and started to make coffee and noticed that I ran out of coffee filters.  I devised a makeshift coffee filter with a paper towel, which FYI, does not work.  I ended up spilling scalding hot coffee and coffee grounds all of over my underwear, legs, counter, and floor.  I cleaned it up and then emptied out  a tea bag and put coffee inside, and now I’m waiting for the coffee to steep, all because I am too lazy to walk out of my fifth floor walk-up to go buy coffee filters.
