Hey you – yes, you.
How has your relationship with coffee evolved over the years?
I used to hate coffee. When I worked in radio at the old Sun Radio Network, I usually had the Saturday morning shift. A local legendary gardening expert (who had a local show on Sunday on the big local talk station, WFLA) would host the first show – and would always ask me if I had made coffee. I lived ten miles away and had a temperamental car at that time, so quite frequently making coffee wasn’t the first thing on my to-do list getting the station up and running at 8:00.
Could I have done it? Probably. Most of the time, I had other priorities.
Fast-forward to the present day. My first three priorities are usually these: get Harry out of the porch area I keep him at night (otherwise he’d drive me crazy) where he’s free to roam around and get food and water as needed, feed him half a can of pet food, and making coffee.
There’s no great trick in making coffee. Grab a filter, fill it up with ground coffee, pour in the water – bada boom, bada bing. A few minutes later, you’re ready to go. Two cups in the morning, one in the afternoon – and that should keep you going all day.
Funny how the things you loathe when you’re younger become the go-to things to do in your life as you get older.
