“Shhhh! Mama hasn’t had her coffee yet!” More than once I’ve uttered this phrase to my secretary, dog, children and even strangers passing by. It used to mean that I hadn’t had my first cup yet but as I’ve grown older, it could mean that my caffeination levels haven’t yet reached what is needed for peak performance.
My daughter understands my need for coffee. She is the best daughter in the world for many reasons. As she’s grown up, she seems to sense when a coffee delivery is the perfect gift. When she brought an Americano with an extra shot to me at work one afternoon, I nearly cried. The bold richness announced itself before she even entered my office. The sun seemed to appear from behind a cloud as she entered with this special cup of bliss. What is your favorite drink?
