Most of you know that I love coffee and I love Iced Tea. I have tried for years to switch to decaf, but it is not even worth drinking. It is kind of like drinking Diet Dr. Pepper instead of regular Dr. Pepper. It is a waste of a beverage. Needless to say I am dependant on caffeine. I am not addicted, I just can’t live without it. There is a difference you know. While drinking my two cups of Dunkin Donuts Coffee this morning, I read Mikey’s Funnies and he had this take on the 23rd Psalm. The original version of the 23rd Psalm is much better but I identified with this one this morning.
Caffeine is my shepherd, I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures.
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz.
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction, I will fear no Equal ™.
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Starbucks.
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of Folger’s forever.”
- Just a side note here. I do not like Starbucks nor Folgers. I prefer Community Coffee or my new love, Dunkin Donuts Original Blend.
