Are you a “give-it-to-me-straight-and-make-it-strong”, one that starts each day with a heavy trudge and determined scowl fueled by the pure black octane?
Or, do you rise lazily and fill a flowing mug with mostly cream and a good pour of sugar – a “like-a-coffee-flavored-beverage-or-at-least-the-thought-of-it” type?
Either way, you’re officially in the Mug Club along with 80% of Americans (and it’s the most popular worldwide beverage) that use this stimulant with no need for rehab – just ongoing usage of Crest Whitestrips.
Myself, I’ve gone through the many phases, from powdered cream with lots of sugar to sickly-sweet flavored coffees and creamers (everything’s better in hazelnut, right?) to appreciating the rich, not bitter dark roast with a splash of half-and-half. I feel I’ve evolved – and this more enlightened, more cultured tipping of the cup definitely gives me a better outlook on the day and my role in it – isn’t that the purpose of this legal, addictive substance? Shouldn’t that be the sole purpose of everything and everyone in our daily challenge?
