I am finally a true adult. I mean, I’ve been an adult acting like an adult for quite some time, but the other day I felt like a true, whole, finally took the leap, adult.
I bought my first can of coffee. I know, I know. NOT what you were thinking, but for me this is a BIG DEAL!!!! My family knows that I did not drink coffee and if we were having any type of family get together at my house someone had to bring the coffee if they wanted to have some! Ok, technically it’s the second can of coffee I’ve purchased, but the first one was probably 2 years ago and was for a family function and not for me to drink. This can is because I’ve started drinking coffee and I wanted to be able to make a cup whenever I felt like it!
This whole habit started at work. Coffee is the one thing that is still free there so EVERYONE drinks it! It’s the worst coffee in the world, but we survive. Since winter rolled around and it’s gotten chilly I’ve started having a half a cup of coffee in the morning at work. Honestly, I can’t drink a whole cup b/c it makes me really hot and then I’m using the bathroom every 15 minutes for 2 hours because it’s a great diuretic! Anyway, since I’ve began this little ritual at work I’ve noticed that when I’m home I’m craving a cup of java. Not an endless pot, but just that little cup with the french vanilla creamer that makes it taste like a cappuccino without all the fat/calories. Hmmmm.
My husband can’t understand why I’ve started and I can’t really either, but I know that it just tastes good. The little can I bought will last me forever since I only make one cup at a time and I don’t usually drink it every day, but I feel like a real grown up! Dumb, I know, but it really made me chuckle when I walked out of the store with a can of coffee in my cart and a little voice in my head that said, welcome to adulthood!
