This Coffee Tastes Like...

UgH! COFFEE! Yeah, I’m a coffee ninny, this is an established fact, backed up and admitted to in writing. But sometimes, especially Monday afternoons, I need a mild jolt that only the dark potion can give.

And yeah, I brought it on myself, but this time I tried to be an adult about the amount of sweet appeal that I applied. Big mistake. I feel like a child being forced to take castor oil or Echinacea extract. This substance is not to be imbibed for pleasure. I am convinced of that.

Some say that it’s an acquired taste, like beer or cabbage. My response to that statement is that a person can get used to living next to a swine farm, too. Why you’d WANT to is beyond my comprehension.


So you cops, Coasties and insomniacs can have your black coffee…pass the sugar please, in a front-end loader.

I finished it like a man, though. A big sissy girly-man...

Unfortunately, your criteria can't be standardized to apply to both genders. Since I like coffee w/ sugar, how would I be labeled? A girly girl? Would that be a perjorative term, too?

Hmm, suppose I did drink coffee w/o sweetner, would I be a manly girl? Should that also be insulting?

The only way to win is to be an honest human being.

You go, uh . . . coffee ninny!!

perhaps I have 'no taste' because I love coffee...I suppose I'm a tasteless ninny........
p.s. I'm also fond of beer and cabbage won't say what that makes me though!

I'll stick with inordinate amounts of sugar, thank you...

...come to think of it; do GM employees ever ford a stream or dodge a bullet? would you ever be able to call one an explorer? on an expedition? in durango, colorado?

this is clearly getting too deep. i'm going to dart out of here...
