A Coffee Moment

And now for a bit of light humour…  Or dark, if you drink your coffee black!  I confess to having an irrational fear that there might not be decent coffee in the house at breakfast time.  The desire to buy another bag of coffee beans every time I enter a grocery store is ever-present.  Why?  Well, for one thing I love the taste, the smell, the process of grinding the beans… and, oh yeah, I am incoherent without it!  Want proof?  This morning while fixing my son’s hot chocolate, I referred to a marshmallow as a ‘mushroom’ and then proceeded to call a ‘movie’ a ‘mall’.  When he looked at me rather quizzically, I looked down at my half-full coffee cup and said, “Well that’s why.  I haven’t finished my first cup yet!”  No joke.  After the first cup, my words fall into place.  After the second cup, I will have life sorted for the next five years.  Give me a third and I virtually turn into Wonder Woman.  Don’t laugh!  I did say ‘virtually’.  And what would my first act as Wonder Woman be?  To be get more coffee, of course!   Hmmm, can you say ‘addiction’?  I am certain I could survive without coffee, I just don’t want to…

    I feel this way about coffee. Recently, while having some stomach problems, coffee suddenly held no appeal for me. When I related this strange phenomenon to my son in Texas, he said, “Mom, get to a hospital – you are definitely sick!” Finally, after a month of being a tea drinker, the craving for coffee is finally returning. I think I might survive this illness…
