Hi guys and girls,
glad you like the coffee emoticons!
I love coffee too, but mostly the flavored ones. In fact I have been known to add some weird stuff to my coffee (FYI - Hershey bars are a no-go). Good to have more people here!
I just recently re-discovered coffee. In college, I downed galllons, then, during a Pediatrics rotation in med. school, I contracted a noxious viral illness from some unfortunate ailing child, and developed a post-viral cross reactivity allergy to coffee and couldn't tolerate it for years. Every time I took a sip it felt like the entire inside of my mouth had been scalded!
After years of abstinence, I found the allergy had subsided, and I could enjoy the precious bean juice once again. Today I've really over-done it, and it's pouring out through my fingertips, over the keyboard, and onto forums like this!
Sorry to inflict my caffeine abuse on you all, but, perhaps, you are readers who may be able to sympathize!
