Today is a quick (lets be honest it wont be quick) anecdote about Coffee. If you would have asked March 2010 if I was a coffee drinker the answer would have been a Resounding "NO". I never felt the need for as what people would call it a "caffeine fix". However all that began to change in April of 2010. Members of my team would go down together for their morning coffee, and so as to not feel left out I began getting a coffee myself. I would purchase a medium coffee and drink a quarter of it before it became cold and who really wants to reheat coffee in a paper cup? Anyways about a month ago for the fitness competition, I was told that a cup of coffee would be good for me. So now I religiously drink a large coffee (sometimes 2!) with out a problem> ...> .Now what is the conundrum? A) it> '> s a pretty penny from my pocket book; B) I tend to buy coffee from Timmy's andddd for some reason my cups ALWAYS leak! Has this happened to anyone else (thereby having the potential to ruin an outfit (i.e. my cream skirt)) and C) I bit the bullet and bought a Bodum French Press, but still have not found the perfect coffee grounds> ...> Any of my fellow readers care to help me out with this one?
As I was having my morning coffee a friend who will now henceforth be named as "Good Things Come in Small Packages" enlightened me on this little fun fact: Did you know.. that if you hold your nose and drink coffee.. it doesn> '> t have a taste?? The taste of coffee that we get is through its aroma so if you can> '> t smell it, you can> '> t taste it :P
Who would have known?! And you know what? I tried it and it was true! --> If you try it let me know!
As I mentioned, my "place" to go for coffee is Tim Horton's just below the escalator because its so close and I can rush back upstairs if needed. Regardless of my conundrum with Coffee, I received a wonderful compliment from the cutie patootie (and I must say gay and loving it!) coffee barista. He went off in French for about two minutes on my outfits and matching make-up and jewellery. I could help but feel extra light this morning with so many wonderful things having been said about my style. He did however berate me on the oodles of change I bring for my coffee, but nevertheless, I felt fabulous as I walked back to take the escalator to my 3rd floor cubicle.
