Coffee Places

I do like coffee. Interestingly, I used to not drink coffee, or tea, when I was growing up. I started when I was working at Tivoli. I noticed many of my co-workers gathering in the kitchen area for coffee and just chatting. I really got intrigued and just got into it.

But as much as I wanted to get into it, it being coffee, it just didn’t taste right. Many told me that it was an acquired taste. Which I found baffling – why would I want to try anything that requires me to “acquire a taste” for. There are so many yummy things that I never had to “acquire” the taste for. They were just delicious.

Anyway, I gave in – and put all the cream and sugar that the beverage would take to make it drinkable.

Over the years my taste for coffee has changed. I now take my coffee black and without sugar / sweetener. For a while I was really into Latte and Mocha Latte, both of which I find very good, but don’t care for either too often. If I am looking for a specialty coffee, I look for a cordato.

Birthday

I have always felt birthdays to be a special thing. For as long as I can remember, my birthday was a special day that my family and friends had celebrated in some form / fashion. When I was really, really young there would be parties – even with some decoration and what not. But that didn’t last long. What did last is the wishes. No matter where I have been, I was always reminded that my loved ones were always there.

I have also never really associated “birthday” with “age”. Not to mention that I don’t really associate “age” with the number of years one has been living. One’s “birthday” to me is more of a yearly marker. An opportunity for the friends and family, i.e., loved ones, to remind that [s]he is special and our lives are brighter because of them in our lives.
