Topic: Am I pathetic or what. (2 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: Aaron
My morning rictual consists of making two cups of coffee to if all goes 
well, go out the door with me at 6 am as I head to work.   One is in a 
cup that I drink on the drive in,  the other is in my nissan mug to 
enjoy at work for the few hours that I can make it last....  Generally 
as I pull into work I am left with about half an inch or so of coffee in 
the drive mug...  Yes I know I really should drink it down, pour it into 
the thermo mug, bla bla woof... but I generally don't, i forget it and 
just rinse it out the next morning when i wash the cup.
Well today, as I got into the car after it had been steaming in the hot 
florida sun all friggin day I look at the thermometer I have in it and 
it's saying 145 degrees...... gee nice, I can't #$^^% wait till july / 
august / etc.  Anyways, I sit down and just stop... the coffee really 
made the car smell good!!  In fact it was making me hungry, but good 
coffee does that anyways especially when i havent ate for several 
hours.  I look over to the cup that been stewing in the sun all day, 
smell it, then swirl it to  make sure no critters decided to pull a 
lemming act when i wasn't watching and said oh why not, Ive drank a hell 
of a lot worse on drunken bets.. and took a swig.  Yanno what,  it was 
still a darned good cup of coffee!!  Full body, no funky sitting on the 
burner for half a century taste, it was pretty good.  People make this 
sun tea, so I have sun coffee... I wonder if I can patent it and market 
it...   Hey tom, you need a business partner?  :)

Aaron,
Good story, made me laugh in parts.  You're not pathetic, just a confessed
coffee-lover.  That was simply "aged coffee" you were drinking.
Hey, if you pass your new creation through the kidneys of an exotic animal
maybe you can charge a kings ransom for it.  I mean what does Kopi Luwak
mean anyway?  I think it means "oops I pooped my beans".  They couldn't
have called it Coffee Uranus.  So you could have some exotic name for your
new brew too.  Maybe something like..."Ko-pee Kitten"?
