dear coffee


Dear Coffee:

You know I’ve loved you for a long time. That first time we spent together on that drive home from a party like 12 years ago and how you kept me awake so I could get to work that morning on no sleep. All those times you helped me stay up to finish studying or helped me recover from a night of drinking. The many times you’ve woken me up for a workday or just soothed me on a Saturday morning. I’ll never forget those.

Yeah sometimes you haven’t been so reliable, sometimes you’ve been kind of weak and other times way too strong but we all have our off days so I understand. I have learned that I just can’t guarantee your goodness with DD so I stopped trying. I find you thoroughly enjoyable at Starbucks but I just can’t afford you there.

Anyway, my point is that I think our relationship has gotten to a co-dependent point and I may just need you more than you need me. I know you’ll tell me how much I mean to you and how we have such great memories but it’s just not fair to me. I can’t be the one to do all the brewing and spending all the money.

So it’s time for me to step back and see others, maybe drink some tea or just have a fruit smoothie. It’s nothing personal, we had great times but I have to think about myself too.

Love always,


ps. Ok, maybe one more time…for old times sake…but that’s it.

    Coffee and I go way back. there have been times where I’ve strayed, but I always come running back.

    I do like coffee, but I can go without it. That could be because of my inability to make a decent cup (including with a single-cup maker). I don’t know what it is, I just can’t do it successfully. When you can only buy it, it gets expensive. So I drink a lot of tea.
