Did you know that the kaufie bien is actually a seed? I didn't until I Wikipedia-ed coffey

Without this seed-drink, I am headache-ridden.
It's not horrible, but I notice it.
Does that mean I'm addicted?

Ani DiFranco, in her song, Out of Habit, tells us that

".. the coffee is just water dressed in brown
beautiful but boring.."

Hmmm....that doesn't seem to be my experience.

Yet, I never did experience that "rush" or "buzz" that folks talk about.
But the headache thing makes me think that I am dependent on the stuff.
I guess I have a wee addiction.
If a wee addiction is possible.

I drink lattes primarily.
Which can get expensive.
But, the extra milk does me good since, being a vegetarian, I could use the extra protein.

  1. Jenn,

    I had no idea you were a vegetarian! Are you really one or was this just to make your lovely poem end with a twist?
