When someone is chatting to me and says “let’s go for a coffee” or “shall I put the kettle on for a coffee” and I have to explain I don’t drink coffee or tea come to that … it gets me thinking ……. what am I missing?
I have often wondered what the big fascination is in taking time out in the day to drink something and allocate it its own slot! … what is it I am missing??
Drinking water really does not get the same response .. “let me add some lemon to your boring water in the hopes it makes it more interesting, because that’s how I roll” … mmm ….. not sure I would have many friends left at all after that.
Since when did drinking etiquette become such a minefield?
However my aversion is not to coffee itself, its to drinking hot drinks …. I love coffee chocolates and I adore the smell, so this got me thinking, why should I miss out on having something similar to a nespresso pods like the ones from the Italian coffee makers Caffe Cagliari.
I’m not quite going to drag my friends round mine for a full on coffee drinking session .. Plus I am OCD and washing too many dirty cups may send me over the edge …
But I do love cake??
So I am thinking that since everyone else allocates time in the day for a coffee break …. maybe I could make a cake with Coffee and Pistachio like this one and allocate it to its own time in the day and eat that instead?
See you like my thinking don’t you!!??
Although I am not sure how many friends I would keep since I’m not good at sharing ..
“Lemon in your water anyone?”
