It's just that I'm a great fan of coffee.
At least I used to be until one of my doctors told me not to drink it because it messes with my pituitary gland. I asked if I could have de-caf and he said NO ! Emphatically NO! Then I asked if I could drink tea. He said yes. I asked if it had to be de-caf. He said no. It's not the 'caffination,' it's the coffeination.
If you "Google" coffee, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, etc., there is enough information out there to scare the pants off anyone.
If everyone who read that information heeded it, all the coffee shops between Seattle and Key West would shut down. And there are a lot of coffee shops just in Seattle.
So, for several weeks no coffee entered my blood stream. There wasn't much of a difference in the way I felt . . . except for the screaming-meeny-fits that were thrown between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Hans 'ole buddy felt a lot different !
Now my newest drink is a Steamer with one pump of mocha. There's a fancy name for it, but basically it's just a very weak hot chocolate. That's the downside.
The upside is this.
While I'm in there, I inhale deeply. I mean I suck in all the air I can through my nostrils hoping that it eases that urge for a really strong cup of coffee.
Brewing coffee really smells good. So do roasted coffee beans.
So far I have succeeded in hyperventilating a couple of times and drawing a lot of attention to myself because it sounds very much like Ouija Yoga breath.
Can someone out there please give me some very good reasons why I can have a couple of cups of coffee in the morning ?
Or how to ease that need for coffee in the morning.
And don't tell me to stuff a bunch of coffee beans up my nose. I tried that with green peas when I was little and ended up in the ER.
