They Said…


Coffee in my cup.

They said. Yes, they did.

They said that new studies indicate that coffee drinkers live longer. With the amount of coffee consumed around this place, I’m pretty sure that some of us will live forever. My first thought was “Damn, I’m never leaving.”

Don’t get me wrong. I have no death wish. I don’t want to die. But, we know that all things must pass. I accept that. Even living to over 100 years old really doesn’t interest me. The quality of life just doesn’t seem to be there. It’s likely that you’d out live most friends and family. It could very well be that living to 100 is a very lonely endeavour.  I don’t know.  I’d ask the next “senior-senior” citizen that I see, but that might not be the kind of question you should ask. Seriously.

Anyway.

I was watching the espresso flowing into the cup when I thought it actually looked kind of cool.

So.

I photographed it while it was in process. Then, I did my thing to it and made it a little more creative. I also realized that when I posted a coffee picture a while back, I earned a new follower. A blog about coffee. I never posted anything about coffee again. What must he or she think of me? Probably, like I’m some kind of bait and switch dude.

Y’all know better than that. I photograph what I see.

By the way, the couple of you who responded to my “should I beg for money” question, said that I should. I probably will. But, it still feels weird to me.

  1. “My first thought was, ‘Damn, I’m never leaving’ ” — I’m still smiling from this, with the occasional…what is it called when one blows a little air through the nose in a mini-laugh, belly engaged? There’s gotta be a word for that. It can’t be “snort”. That’s for kids and pigs and cocaine and strange people on the subway.
