Coffee... the remedy to combatting cynical Tuesday

There is a black chair in our office... upon which I sit to get the best wireless signal. And the joke is that you sit in this chair on Tuesdays... cynical Tuesdays... after reading something outrageous, brokenhearted because your fantasy football team sucked it up over the weekend, or you are just needing to vent a little bit of "ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?" about something...

Early this morning I had a good time meeting with a couple guys over a cup of coffee and I think I may have found a remedy... or at least a calming salve for cynical Tuesday...

Coffee.

Now... I don't want to diminish the Mercy of the Lord that is new this morning and available to me... but the coffee doesn't hurt one bit!

Enjoy some Coffee-isms...


"No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee's frothy goodness."
~Sheik Abd-al-Kadir

"I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee."
~Flash Rosenberg

"In Seattle you haven't had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it's running."
~Jeff Bezos

"Decaffeinated coffee is kind of like kissing your sister."
~Bob Irwin

"It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. I bet this kind of thing does not happen to heroin addicts. I bet that when serious heroin addicts go to purchase their heroin, they do not tolerate waiting in line while some dilettante in front of them orders a hazelnut smack-a-cino with cinnamon sprinkles."
~Dave Barry
