I have returned to drinking coffee again.
For a long time time, I boycotted coffee.
My entire system just needed a break–coffee, alcohol, and all other vices you could imagine or not imagine–I threw away.
After some six months, things have changed.
Today, I am at the coffee shop.
Flower: Just regular non-caff tea?
Me: No. Regular coffee. Black.
Flower: Decaff coffee?
Me: Black coffee. Dark.
Flower: Mo! I thought you gave it up!
Me: I’m back.
Flower: Glad you’re back.
She served me the coffee.
After sipping it neat for twenty minutes, I went through a quarter of it. My head was turbo-charged.
I decided I had enough.
I returned to the bar with the rest of the coffee.
Me: Flower, could you please pour away half of what is left in my cup and top the rest with hot water?
Flower: Of course. You have to return slowly.
So I went back to my seat, with the highly diluted coffee.
I’m sipping on it, slowly, as i continue to edit the book manuscript I’m working on.
Feeling good on a Monday morning.
Do you drink coffee or tea?
Or do you prefer kókó gbigbona?
Interested in some of my published works?
