Full Disclosure: The Captain does not drink coffee. Never has. Love the smell of coffee being ground, but can't stand the taste. That said, enjoy the following...
The Captain has realized that several of my Facebook Friends are coffee drinkers.
Rabid Coffee Drinkers!
In fact, in recent weeks, they have posted several memes first thing in the morning making reference to their need for coffee.
It happens so frequently the Captain fears we are dealing with an addiction.
According to Psychology Today, an Addiction is "a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol,cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others."
Fortunately for my friends, coffee addiction is one that society accepts - in some places embraces.
Grocery stores, gas stations, even churches will offer a free cup of coffee to customers. Especially at gatherings of preachers, coffee flows freely, but should you want some other beverage, "There's a Coke machine down the hall. They're 75 cents."
They almost didn't let me be a preacher because I don't drink coffee and I don't play golf!
In social media, the cute little coffee memes are abundant. And, yes, they are humorous. But I wonder if anyone would find them as funny if we substituted a different beverage in the place of the word "Coffee".
Let's see what that might look like:
See what I mean?
