20 Things I’m Thankful For #4 – Coffee

Oh, man. Coffee. You knew this was coming. I never drank much coffee until college. And then, it was crap like Denny’s. Strictly caffeine injection so I could “cram” for tests. Yeah, that didn’t work (the coffee or the cramming). Somewhere along the way I started drinking better coffee, but still needed to “doctor” it … Read more
