So lately a lot of the books I've been reading have had main characters who are coffee addicts. They thrill at the thought of a hot Cup'o'Joe and can't fathom starting their day without one.
What is it about this drink that makes people drool? It seems like such a sophisticated adult drink and I want to like it, I do; but I just can't get past the fact that it tastes like ear wax. I have tried all sorts of varieties but have yet to find one that makes me come back for a second round. If I put in an even ratio of creamer to coffee I can at least stand to drink it but my body does not need me sabotaging it by adding all those calories to my diet. I just don't get why its so appealing!? Guess I will stick to my inner child's drink of choice: hot chocolate.
So tell me, are you a coffee addict who can explain it's mysteries to me? Or are you as clueless about it's appeal as I am? What's your hot drink of choice?
