Java Jive

What does it mean to be a coffee addict? I have exactly one cup in the morning…usually. There are the occasional cups shared over conversation with a friend at other times during the day, but for the most part I have only one cup a day. And for that one cup, I drink alone. But, oh, what that one cup does. I find myself dreaming about it all day long. There are times when I can’t wait to go to bed just so I can wake up and have my cup of coffee. I’m not sure if this shows admirable self-control on my part or unashamed gluttony. And it’s not just the coffee I dream about. It’s the cream (half and half, NOT Coffee-Mate) and sugar (sugar in the raw, thank you very much, NOT white sugar) that appeal to me every bit as much as the steaming, black, liquid caffeine.

Not that I don’t have other good reasons to get up in the morning (which I have gone into in great detail in previous posts), but on the days when it’s hard to remember what they are, it’s good to have coffee to look forward to.

    You are a coffee snob!

    I have fallen in love with Tea and milk. It is much better then coffee…and somehow has this illusion of being better for your health.

    You’ll get over it. It doesn’t put hair on the chest like coffee does. Gosh, I hope the above comment wasn’t written by Kirsty.

    I’m a snob. I know it. Sometimes in the winter, I love hot tea with cream and sugar too. Cream, not milk.

    This is great. Les, I now know what to give you for Chris’ birthday in October (no idea what to give him). It’s this thing my neighbor gave me that is the BEST EVER. I opened it after she left, then ran down the stairs and gushed like a baby, even banged it around and slobbered on it. Well, no, but maybe you will I hope?

    Way to plug the cream. Powder form is vile and forbidden in Leviticus.

    Hi, Carlee. (just seein’ if she’s holding to her promise to catch up. Now’s the time since blogging has slowed down a bit.)

    You’ve got me very curious! Hey, come more towards the end of October and we can do a bunch of birthdays at once. Mine’s early November, you know. And I remember when Jazzy-Sue was born. Are you December?

    Okay, I’ll look toward the end of October.

    Close, January. Carlee Marie Layne and California Madison Wisconsin are November, too, right? Well I know Calliebrate is, Nov. 25th. I think I remember Carlee showing off that she’s like a whole 2 months older than me, so much further down the long, hard road. I do like her. She’s an oldie but goodie.

    Scott, puppet, do you enjoy a nice biscuit with your tea and milk?

    I don’t know why but I just can’t get into coffee or tea.
    But, for some reason I keep trying it when there is a social reason to do so. I think I insulted one of our English hosts when she asked me how much sugar I would like in my shot glass sized cup and I said “three spoons, no maybe four.” They all gasped and she handed me the spoon and let me do it myself. Everyone at the table had a good laugh at me.

    But, Leslie, I too dream of coffee all day long when I have had a cup but not for the same reason. My longings are for what form of chocolate or gum will get this terrible bitter aftertaste out of my mouth.

    My crappy first job as a shampoo girl is what got me into coffee. I wanted to be fully awake when the hot water hits the sweaty head of a weekly wash-n-set old lady. Mmmmmmmm…nothing like that cloud of stink rising deep into your nose as 7 days of hairspray turns into ticky-tack right before your eyes.

    I just noticed my last handle rhymed with the post. Right on! I like shackalacka style.
