10 Things In 10 Days: #2. (The End is Near.)

For many of us, it’s the only fuel good enough for our human engine in the morning.

It fights back the hangover monster with a vengeance.

It helps us forget the night before; when we got together with Sheila from payroll, drank all her uncle’s homemade wine that tasted like antifreeze, and woke up on a bus full of circus people. In Cleveland.

It keeps us sharp.

It keeps us awake.

It’s the greatest beverage ever created by mammals with opposable thumbs.

#2: Java.

Wait… What the hell am I doing?

I hate coffee!

Never mind…

See you in the lobby, kids…

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

    I love coffee. I can’t do full-strength because it makes me jittery and EXTREMELY talkative. Current potion is 50/50, but I will drink decaf all day in the winter if the fancy strikes me (and it’s -7 outside)… because I love the taste of it.

    However, I differ on the “greatest beverage” ever. I think Margaritas are.

    And vodka.

    And wine too.

    AHHHH!

  3. Doug in Oakland says:

    I don’t drink it any more, but I still love the way it smells. I found out that I was slightly allergic to it when I got my first restaurant job and had access to as much of it as I wanted. It gave me a skin rash on my arms that only went away when I stopped drinking it. Too bad, I even like the way it tastes…

  4. You poor man. The love of coffee is nearest to heaven. I’ll keep you in my java wishes.

    I love the way it smells, but I don’t drink it. I’ve never acquired a taste for it. πŸ™‚

    When I saw that title, I thought perhaps you’d had a plumbers’ convention. πŸ˜†

    Funny thing, people are amazed when they find out I don’t drink coffee. Never acquired the taste. Don’t like Tierra mi us for that reason. Tastes like coffee. Oh well, some people don’t like beer…

  8. I didn’t drink coffee until I started traveling for work….and getting stuck in airports. Not much for any food there, but a good coffee. Makes airport chaos more tolerable.
    Mostly water when not traveling, though.
