Ode to coffee

Oh coffee, sweet coffee
You are my wonder drug
You kick me awake
With a gentle slug.

You make headaches go away
You keep aches and pains at bay
You’re a great substitute for a nap
You make me feel better when I’m feeling like crap.

Oh coffee, sweet coffee,
For you, a glorious benediction
If only I didn’t feel so awful
Trying to wean myself from your addiction.

Note:  #2 again denies any responsibility for this.

    I used to drink a f*ckelooade of coffee. Now I just drink one shot of espresso first thing in the morning, and thatte’s itte!

    I miss coffee so much. My stomach won’t tolerate it anymore. Every few months I still try some thinking that maybe I grew out of it, so I can drink it again. So sad.

    A few years ago I went back to my morning cup of coffee (after 10yrs without!). I start day dreaming about my morning cup the night before. It makes me happy :)

    I like coffee before, but now as a mother of <1 yr old, I love coffee in a way that should probably make my husband jealous.

    For me it’s not coffee, it’s just about any form of caffeine – pop, tea, coffee…but not energy drinks. I just think most of them taste nasty. (this might be the sweet-toothiness kicking in too).

  7. Dr. O Says:

    I refuse to ever give up my morning cup of coffee – I even kept up drinking a slightly weaker cup while pregnant with Monkey. He seems fine, though, except for the excited tick he gets right before he begins nursing…
