Coffee perked is no better than instant
That's your opinion, I disagree

Some things are better done slowly
Today all we want is quickies

It takes the pleasure out of many things
I don't like our instant society

You like instant  European, I like brewed Colombian, must we argue

Can't we just sample each others and smile
We could cuddle nice for a little while

As we take sips giving our choices
Enough time to savor the taste

But no, you must have your instant fix
Saying I should be satisfied with the quickie

 Then leave me with cold coffee grounds

I live in an area that has a store called a WAWA, kinda like a 7-11 but much, much better...they have a cappacino machine that makes both latte (caffeine drink) and creamers (just a milky substance without caffeine), and the creamers are delicious...Myself I mix in a bit of caramel coffee, maybe a half cup then top it off with a caramel creamer...damn thats good coffee, such as it is mostly not, LOL!

Oh, I really didn't "get" it the way Sherry did, I assumed you were only talking about how life has metamporpsed(sp) into the fast track about everything. But I haven't time to discuss it, I'm late for . . .

It is sad that someone needs be so controlling that you must do things his way or no way at all. That "My way or the highway" mentatlity leads to a lonly existance. This person is what I would openly call a "loser;" he not only missed out on a wonderful time with you, I am certain he has lost out on a whole lot else in life as well. Trust me, you are much better off with your cold coffee grounds than his "holier than thou" attitude. Watta jerk!!!!
Take care,

I like a blend of old and new Eileen, as I like to have a foot in every camp !
I just love Mochas and Cappochinos, the elixir of Heaven !
Very tasty and palatable composition

Makes me think of bacon. Slowly frying up in the pan; sizzling away, touching the nose before the stomach. And then there are many that prefer to put it into a microwave for a few seconds so they can have their rubber. But then again some quickies are quite fun ;-) The message within this write is quick clear and is quick for the reader to pick up as you slowly add depth to it. Great write.

I agree - and those cold already used coffee grounds have saved my butt on many a day!
