I don’t use the word hate often.
Unless I’m talking about coffee.
I hate coffee.
The aroma. The taste. The frou-frou triple-venti-mocha-caramel-half-caff-extra-soy-hazelnut-latte-with-extra-frappin’-foam.
I hate, hate, hate it.
And I’m giving away three month’s worth of Tom’s coffee as my part of The Daily Blur’s Inaugural Semi-Shameless Subscriber Drive.
Well, I am Miles & Co.’s Company Curmudgeon. A title, as our team will tell you, I take very seriously. And according to the Curmudgeon Code (Article 7, Section 4), our type would never, EVER admit that we actually like something…much less give it away as a gift.
So, in lieu of offering a prize I actually, y’know, prize, I’m opting to give away something I hate.
And I hate coffee. With a passion.
But, hey, I realize I’m in the minority. For reasons I can’t understand, many of you actually ENJOY the jolty juice of the evil bean. It’s even believed that java junkies enjoy benefits of caffienated creativity that us anti-coffee advocates will never fully realize.
Well, aren’t you special?
The way I look at it, the more coffee I give to you, the less coffee I have to smell.
And that’s a win-win in my book.
