An Ode to Coffee

Dear Coffee,

Thank you for helping me stay sane every single morning, especially the times I don't wake up feeling like P. Diddy.  Thanks for helping me wake up and become alert so I don't cut my finger off when I prepare breakfast, get in a fender bender on the way to work, or have a meltdown at work.  When I feel like I have 99 problems, you make me feel like I only have 98.

Thank you for being a great date.  It could be something as simple and quick at the neighborhood coffee place or fancy like at Dripp or Urth Caffe.  Coffee dates were great in college, and even greater now with my wife. 

You helped me get though midterms, final exams, and important deadlines.  Through college, graduate school, and manic Mondays, you've been my saving grace.  You've been my copilot on road trips and the perfect tasty treat for any time of the day. 

For being my morning elixir, a delight in my marriage, and one of my favorite delicacies in life, I want to simply say thank you.
