Since the weather's been so warm here in San Francisco lately I haven't been able to drink hot tea so I found myself slipping into Peet's Coffee for ice coffee to start my mornings at the office. I had such a good time drinking ice coffee at an outdoor patio I realized how much I missed coffee's effects on my mood.
It's clear to me now that without coffee I'm not really living life as a normal person, but rather just vegetating. I have an undefined health problem and need coffee to help me be an active person otherwise I'm in a passive reactive mode of so called living. I wonder how many people share this experience? After checking Google images under key words "without coffee" I found a slew of those who share my addiction. Here's just a few.
When I read Exodus in the Bible I wonder how the Jews managed to walk all of those miles in such dire conditions without a cup of Joe. What's our society come to when we need coffee this much?
