COFFEE TIME


It's how I start my day.

Every day.

6:30 a.m. today.

I slept in.

Is it wrong to admit I hate coffee?

You mean you don't urinate first?

William, in a word, no.

Yorkshire Pudding, have you smuggled a camera in here?

My Greek pal Nick, said when he was staying with us, "I need a bowl of coffee in the morning, thick, black and strong and make sure it's so hot it will give me third degree burns." I did three scoops in the pot rather than the normal two, served it in a big soup mug. Nick put three spoons of sugar in it, drank it and another cup before he said "good morning". He was fine after his third cup, close to the entire pot. Oh and he smoked about 6 cigarettes with his coffee. (on the porch) Ate a pound of grapes, some olives and a bunch of cheese for breakfast. Then he was good to go.

He cooked lamb on the grill for dinner that night and drank wine and scotch with dinner. His wife humors him.

You have some dangerous friends, Jager.

What's that strange light on the side of the cup? I go to bed at 3:00 a.m., and I haven't seen such illumination in quite a while. No coffee for me. Diet Coke will do, around noon, to wake me up. I don't sleep till noon, of course. That's about the earliest I can make it to The Gas Station Chicken Store to get my magical elixir.

Before retirement, I traveled a lot for 15 years, US and Europe mostly. I'd get up, shower, etc, dress and go out for coffee. Now I put on slippers and sweats and have a technique where I can have a cup of Italian press in less than 5 minutes. I drink it while reading the 'news'. Retirement is slovenly for me when I'm home, at the kids houses, I try to be more dignified.

I don't see 6:30 a.m. and I don't drink coffee. ;-))

My alarm goes off at 0553, got a mug of tea in hand by 0610, out the door by 0634.

Days off, I'm often awake at 0530. I'm afraid when I retire, this won't change.

I can't even stand the smell of coffee, but caffeine is also my active ingredient of choice.

Me too, without fail! I'm always having my first cup when I write my blog posts.
