National Coffee Day

Thursday is National Coffee Day. Obviously, every day is Coffee Day for me but still I do intend to celebrate.

Last week I had an appointment for a fasting blood test. I couldn't eat or sleep after midnight until after the test the next day. It was a long appointment. I had a lack-of-caffeine headache and a lack-of-caffeine soul .When I finally got out of there at 1:45pm, I found my way to the nearest Starbucks as fast as a hybrid could carry me.

I got my venti drip and went back to the car and started gulping it down. It was boiling hot and seared my mouth. I took a drink recoiled in pain, swearing and then took another drink, more pain and swearing, more drinking. Finally, I looked up and noticed that a truck was parked opposite me. The guy inside was staring at my crazy coffee lady show. He must have been a frappuccino drinker because another real coffee drinker would have understood.

I will be observing National Coffee Day tomorrow. I'll let my cup(s) cool off a little first. Probably.


  1. Someone once asked me why I stopped going on backpacking trips.

    When I told them about the space the coffee pot takes up, they suggested instant.
