Is It Coffee or Coffffffeeeeee!
For many, many years it was swill to me, but as with many things in my life, that too has changed.
~info dump of the small variety~ I grew up in a family where coffee was king. Most of you probably know what I mean, picture a day of meals with grandma and grandpa. Pancakes, bacon and eggs for breakfast. What to drink? Coffee. Lunch... soup and sandwich, drink - Coffee. Dinner... Roast, potato's, veggie and a good bread, hey don't forget the applesauce and Coffee. Shall we have desert? Cookies and COFFEE!
~dump over, ;)~
Yes, coffee was king, but I was the court jester. Why? Because I hated the stuff.
One taste of that nasty, bitter brew would burn my tongue and turn my stomach, though the smell was always pleasant.
Somewhere along the line, my tastes changed however and now the coffee(bleck) has changed to cofffeeee(more baby) Is it age? or maybe it's the sweet goodness of the milk and sugar substitute I put in it, or even the rush it gives me once consumed...yeah, it's probably the last one. LOL
That rush has helped me out many a day, for sure. I've used it to get more writing done, get some cleaning done, even sparked a desire in me to dance around the living room when I really should be working, but that's okay, I'll call it exercise.
As I finish this cup of coffee, I'm starting to wonder, do my shapeshifters drink coffee? I mean, the question has really never come up in our interviews. I'm sure the human in them may or may not like coffee, but how would it effect the animal?
Hmmm, I might have to follow that train of thought in an upcoming story, coffee - aphrodisiac in a shifting world? Maybe. :)
How about you out there? Yay or nay on coffee and does it cause any surprises in your shifters?
