I like coffee so much that I have tea for breakfast: The first cup of the day in particular is so good that I’m afraid I won’t be able to properly appreciate it when I am half-asleep. Therefore, I celebrate it two hours later when I am fully conscious...
Here’s a chart that shows my coffee bias over the years. For good measure I have added my bagel preferences over the same period. (1) Drip coffee, (2) Starbucks, (3) blueberry bagels, (4) sesame bagels, (5) poppy-seed bagels, (6) everything bagels. Please don’t hold my brief affair with blueberry bagels against me. I cured myself of this aberration.
I order large coffees, but stop drinking when the coffee gets too cold. There’s always a couple of ounces left in the cup, so I can’t just toss it into my wastebasket. I dread the long haul to the bathroom to properly dispose of the coffee remains. Hence you will usually find a tower of paper cups on my desk.
That last one's funny because it's true!!!
By the way, as I write I am sipping a large black coffee from Dartmouth's Novack Cafe. I prefer Dunkin' Donuts to Dartmouth Dining Services, and I prefer mugs to paper cups with cardboard sleeves, but alas I am a student and this is what we do, so I am honor-bound.
