For the LOVE of Coffee

My Guilty Pleasure

You know how some things make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside?  That is my coffee.  Yes, I am guilty of drinking it for the "perk" that it provides, but I drink it for many other reasons.

*The smell helps me lift my heavy head off the pillow. 
*The sound of the coffee maker keeps me from drifting back to sleep.


*The coffee cups warm my hands, which always seem to be cold (regardless of the weather).
*It gives me an excuse (at home) to sit and sip instead of jumping into the duties of the day.
*I stimulate the economy when purchasing from a coffee shop.
*There is an unspoken relationship between women who drink coffee.  An "understanding."

*It gives girl friends and excuse to slow down and chat while enjoying a cup.

And, of course, it allows you to express your personality.
Bold. Medium. Mild. Light. House Blend. Creamer. Flavor.  Whipped Cream.  Non-Fat.  Extra Hot. Sugar.  Sweetener.  Tall.  Grande

And what you decide to put it in can also express your personality/mood for the day.
