Thread: Developing the Taste
- 10-22-2012 08:21 AM #21
I started drinking coffee to break from soda on a third shift job I had a long time ago. I needed to stay awake and looked to the bean to facilitate that. It was a long time ago before Starbucks gained notoriety and the Seattle scene brought coffee houses everywhere. I remember the first time I walked into a coffee house, the smell was fantastic and it did not take long before I started to love the drink. I am also a tea drinker and enjoy both. I probably have 5 to 6 cups of tea a day and 2 cups of coffee a day. I do drink more coffee but if I do I scale back my tea consumption. It was not hard for me to get the taste for coffee, I do think that a coffee house is a great place to go to get that bug, it could be Starbucks but the atmosphere at a non-chain coffee house is way better.
Look up coffee houses in your area with a quick Google search and find some that have events that sound interesting. It could be poetry night or music, then go in and check it out. Be sure to tell the Barista that you have a person who is trying to learn to enjoy coffee and they will help you along. Your Barista is your guide and can really help her get into the groove. One thing I should say is that you are more likley to get this at a coffee house that is not Starbucks.

Imagine that. What a revelation!!! I might have actually started drinking coffee because of peer pressure? Kind of funny when you think about it.
Anyway after that, it was sort of a social thing (I think I touched on this in my previous post), and then even as the times changed and I didn't have coffee breaks with those people any more, the morning coffee still stuck with me... And so began my relationship with coffee..

I also like the pools where you don't even need to get out to eat

Yeah this is true.
My logic behind the heated pool is almost the same as yours. Lol, eating inside the pool is not a very smart choice, I believe. I though love playing water games inside the heated pool. I can virtually remain inside the pool for hours if I have different water games to play. However, I don't really feel extremely comfortable in the public swimming pools even if they are heated. I wish I had my own swimming pool inside my house where I could enjoy all the activities and fun all by myself (or maybe family and close friends).
At the moment though, I live in an apartment where obviously it is not possible to have swimming pool, lol......

Well, partly yes and partly no.
Partly yes because I have some space in my living room to set up a kiddy pool. And partly no because I am much bigger to fit in any kiddy pool and also the kiddy pool does not give the sense and feel of the actual pool. The environment around the pool matters as well.SAY "I LOVE YOU" TO EVERYONE YOU WANT TO, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE !

I have seen kiddie pools that are about maybe a foot across but are two feet/three feet deep... How the heck does someone enjoy those? (Even a small child?)
We can set up a little grill too, and of course always have hot coffee available... I always stick ice in mine on those days though.. The looks I get... LOL...

Lol, OMG, I really loled at "ahh the benefits of not having a car"..........
But unfortunately, I don't even have a garage in my apartment, You are much better and well off than me, lol......
Yeah, to be placed in a living room, an average kiddie pool of 20 feet in diameter is pretty much big.
And I don't see any use of that 1 foot diameter kiddie pool. I believe, there is no option for a person like me, living in an apartment.SAY "I LOVE YOU" TO EVERYONE YOU WANT TO, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE !
