We have been watching our grandson while our daughter-in-law continues in Dental School. She will be responsible for taking care of the chaos in my mouth for the remainder of my life. Part of that chaos is surely attributable to my love of coffee. For a very long time neither of my children liked coffee. As a matter of fact, they thought my wife and I were crazy. Well we are, but that is beside the point. Now that they are both adults, they have learned to love coffee. My daughter who is 25 and SINGLE is going to dental hygiene school. Between her and my daughter-in-law, my mouth should be well taken care of.
However, they are now loving my Colombian Supremo beans a little too much. My son stops by each morning to drop off my grandson and has a large cup as we discuss the daily drudgery of being accountants. I now know why they call us bean counters, because I am starting to count the depletion of my Colombian Supremo bean inventory with great angst and anxiety. We are now up to three pots in the morning and our commercial coffee grinder is being put to the test and depreciating rapidly. We are already on a monthly shipment of the beans from Coffee for Less. I hope they see I’m a good referral source and ship one free 100 pound bag to me this month. One can hope right? Then my daughter now has her own Keurig machine, but still consumes MY supply.
Now I love my kids, but they are making me draw the line. Kids or beans, beans or kids? Whoever said children are a blessing should have their beans removed for a month. Then let’s see how they truly feel? It’s enough to make a parent become a closet coffee addict and hide from the children coffee conspiracy. Now our time of watching our grandson ends this next week and my supply of beans will stop depleting as rapidly. My son will have to find his caffeine fix somewhere else.
This leaves me only with the issue of my daughter. If there are any rich doctors, dentists or computer engineers seeking a beautiful, fun loving, and intelligent soul mate – puhleeeeze reply to this post. I’m taking applications and interviews for a son-in-law. Those with saggy pants need not apply. Attach photos of your coffee accessories and bean supply. I will make exception for Starbucks franchise owners or employees of Coffee for Less. I’ll even throw in the 100 pounds of beans Coffee for Less ships me as her dowry.
Are you reading this Coffee for Less? Geez, gratitude for shameless promotion is so hard to find these days. Oh the chaos that coffee brings to world. Yes I am very shameless, but hey, every bean counts.
What madness has coffee brought to your family?
