Thank you for drinking coffee

A little Latte goes a long way

A little Latte goes a long way

Drinking coffee is a truly noble act. Sounds like a strange statement to make but hear me out.
We all know that most people in today’s fast-paced highly competitive world, need to be fully alert and rely on a cup, or even cups of coffee to get through their day with full alertness and their sanity intact. But beyond the obvious, there is another dark (sometimes milky) side to this.

Without coffee, one may be irritable and on edge, thus causing them to be grumpy, mean and very likely hurt those around them. So, to save them from a crushed spirit, the hurt, agony and the pain, we drink coffee, in order to be more patient, tolerant and kinder towards all. Now isn’t that selfless?

Hence, the next time you see someone moody and demand a cup of coffee, don’t be mad, don’t think ‘Diva’ and don’t judge. They are doing it for you. And when you know you can be a bit annoying or are about to ask someone a less than intelligent question, just do yourself a favor and hand them a cup of coffee. Help them help you. Also, when you see someone in the heroic act of pouring a cup of coffee or in the admirable process of drinking it, be appreciative. They are doing it for your happiness, wellbeing and peace of mind. So don’t be shy, go ahead and do the right thing; reward positive behavior by thanking them!

As I sit at home and sip on my own creation of honey-cinnamon latte, I now feel even more inspired and empowered to take on the world (and its inhabitants).

Warning: I am not advocating extreme coffee drinking or suggesting a dosage of 5 cups a day. Coffee can make you very hyper (level of intensity varies according to the frequency of exposure) and too much of it will make you do stupid things faster, thus increasing your risk of getting hit, punched or worse. High amounts will also make your heart beat so fast that you may mistake it for eternal mountain-moving type of love. So drink responsibly. Also, if someone around you has been exposed to bad or stale coffee, be prepared for adverse effects and get ready to run for your life. If this post has offended anyone, it’s probably because I need more coffee.

Here is some eye-caffeine for you. Enjoy!

      Thank you for visiting my blog, Mariella. I guess in a way even coffee builds bridges between people πŸ˜‰

    From one coffee drinker to another – bravo Nita :) Would love to hear your recipe for the honey-cinnamon latte one of the days if you are up for sharing!

      Thanks Jess! Happy to know you are a kind and selfless soul too πŸ˜‰ And sure thing – it’s insanely simple. A regular latte but honey to sweeten it instead of sugar, and sprinkled with cinnamon powder on top.. Voila! :)

    I loved my coffee dark and bitter but I recently found out it contributed to my acid problem. Now I don’t drink them so often but always love a cappucinno every now and then. But isn’t coffee great? What a lovely read, hilarious πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Aggy :) Happy to know you liked the post and that you also share a love of coffee! Wish it didn’t cause any acid problems for you, but I guess indulging every once in a while is okay :)
