I was looking through my e-mails this morning, and this aritcle caught my eye:

I'm not sure what I drink could be called coffee... I like half milk half water, heat and add instant decaf and a little sugar. I normally have a large mug twice a day but I still don't think it is 4 cups worth. If I drank 4 cups of regular I'd be bouncing off the walls!

That's very interesting.

I don't drink coffee -- I only drank it for a year, when I was in eleventh grade, to keep myself awake and not because I liked the stuff.

Bouncing off the walls, indeed! I don't know many people that can handle four cups a day, but for the regular coffee drinkers I know, it's more that they'd be spending all day in the bathroom...

I have trouble finding time to go to the bathroom now, I definitely don't need that problem! I have a lot of trouble sleeping if I have caffeine so I try to stick to decaf. The creamed honey sounds so good. I love tea but the decaf I've tried is just not good.

It's kind of a running joke in our family to ask me to make the coffee. MIL likes to think that she's helpless and is always getting her kids (DH and his bros and sis) to make her coffee. Well one day everyone had an excuse why they could not go make her coffee (trying to make her get off her butt and do it herself) so she asked me. Well, I've never made coffee in my life. So I just told her no. It was earth-shattering. I think I was the first person EVER to tell her no. At the time she thought I was lying but now she thinks its funny. I got her a coffee-scented candle for Christmas that year. I told her at least she could smell it. :)

The only time I've had coffee on a regular basis was that summer in college when I worked at a Girl Scout camp. There was no way to face 100 girls who were home-sick, crying, sissified, scared of every bump in the night, afraid of bugs, squealing, giggling, playing... You get the idea. I was in charge of a group of 10-15 six to eight year olds for a week in the woods. I NEEDED that coffee!!

Now, normally I don't drink it. However, since I was pregnant with my son (11 mos old) I have been wanting coffee. It is the strangest thing. I smell my BIL's coffee and I just want some! It smells so good! I think he just puts milk and sugar in it. Next time we're at his house I just might have some. I have to say though, I can drink iced tea by the gallons. I even know how to make it myself too. ;)
