Are you one of those people that can't function until you have your morning coffee?
I am not much of a coffee drinker. Usually, I will have a cup with Bob in the mornings but if he is not here, I don't even make coffee.
I like the international coffees that come in those little tin containers and taste more like hot chocolate than coffee.
Bob has to have at least two cups of coffee in the morning in order to get his day started.
I don't do well with caffeine either. A cup of coffee with caffeine will really wake me up. If I drink anything with caffeine during the day, I stay up all night.
I love coffee mugs and cups and pick them up anytime I see an unusual or different one.
I used to know people when I still worked that drank coffee all day.
Did you know that special studies conducted about the human body revealed it will usually absorb up to about 300 milligrams of caffeine at a given time. About 4 normal cups. Additional amounts are just cast off, providing no further stimulation. Also, the human body dissipates 20% of the caffeine in the system each hour.
Here's a little joke about coffee: A Grandmother was surprised by her 7-year old grandson one morning. He had made her coffee! She drank what was the worst cup of coffee in her life. When she got to the bottom, there were three of those little green army men in her cup. Puzzled, she asked, "Honey, what are the army men doing in my coffee?"
Her grandson answered, "Grandma, it says on TV, the best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup."
Here's how to tell if you are a caffeine addict.
You might be a caffeine addict if :
You think sleep is for the weak.
Your heart beats noticeably faster as a reaction to the smell of coffee.
Your child's name is Nescafe.
You go to sleep just to wake up and smell the coffee.
Your coffee pot is next to your bed and your alarm clock is in the kitchen.
You suck on a used coffee filter whenever the can runs out of coffee.
I love to serve coffee to my friends and family along with some kind of great dessert. You can find a great holiday coffee recipe on my recipe blog: Recipes From A Southern Country Cook.
A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.
Are you a coffee addict or do you not drink coffee?
