Wine or Coffee, Coffee or Wine…That is the Question.
I have a significant number of vices and probably several I don’t even know about or refuse to acknowledge. I have my friends to remind me of those things so there’s no need for me to keep track of everything about myself! They do a fine job!
Some people may look at vices, in general, as a negative trait when considering a person. I would never do that to any of you! I will not even utter the “J” word here, or EVER, because I distain it more than just about anything. Judgmental people are at the tippy top of my list of pet peeves. You are you and I’m not you so have at yours while I continue with mine!
My two absolutely favorite vices are wine and coffee (most people know this about me already). I love, love, love them both so it has taken a lot of thought over the last 24 hours to decide/determine which one I would rather divorce if the screws where turned. They both make my toes curl, in wonderful but very different ways.
I actually did a little self reflection and research on a website to help me make this important personal decision and not that I have any plans to do so.
Wine is Proof God Loves Us and Wants Us to be Happy by Benjamin Franklin
(I’ve used this quote before and it’s no lie! If he said...)
But then, I found an equally compelling quote about coffee that summarizes my feelings very well.
Things I love about coffee:
Coffee is hot
Coffee makes me excited
Coffee is good enough to have every day.
Coffee smells good
Coffee makes me nervous sometimes
Coffee gives me warm and fuzzies
Even when coffee is too strong or too weak, it’s still good.
When I think back historically about my relationship with both of these liquid gold drops of goodness, I realize that one WAS rather easy to give up and the other impossible so I didn’t.
One gives me a headache if I drink three glasses and the other gives me a headache when I don’t.
Therefore, if push came to shove and God forbid it ever does…
I can’t stop drinking the coffee. If I stop drinking the coffee, I stop doing the standing and the walking and the words putting-into-sentence doing.
Drink Coffee…Do Stupid Things Faster with More Energy!
That is my final answer…Coffee; I’ve never been able to give it up and I never will. Wine is a very close second for me because…
For instant happy woman (me), just add wine!
BUT, Step away from my coffee and no one gets hurt!

The concluding thought that puts the cherry on top is I'd always share my wine with anyone. Go ahead, have a sip. However, back off my perfectly golden goodness or I might snip. That’s how I knew by which would make me angry living without or having someone touch.
