Day 22: Something You Miss
My Caffeinated Tale of Woe.
A year ago or so,
I had the usual tests done for Cholesterol
I did not do well on these tests.
Changes needed to be made!
My preferred method of coffee-making at the time
was a French Press.
I LOVED my French Press.
I wrote poems about it.
I adored the mechanics and ceremony of brewing in it.
In my googling of ways to lower Triglycerides,
I discovered you could lower them by using a paper filter with your coffee.
Something to do with an oil that paper filters off the foil filters don't.
But, I thought, I use a French Press!
I went downstairs to my conventional Coffee Maker
(kept there for when my dad visits) and there was the cache of filters.
I painstakingly cut filters to size.
Ok, this is going way too long about the French Press...
Perhaps I should've sketched a picture of that instead?
Long story short (too late)
I also went to 1/2 caf and eventually cut out coffee altogether.
My numbers went down CONSIDERABLY!
I drink tea now.
Tea is good...
Earl Grey rules.
But I still keep coffee, for guests I tell myself,
but the true reason is to open that cabinet in which the coffee is kept
and take a big sniff.
Just smelling it is enough to relax and invigorate.
I miss you coffee.
I hope you're doing well.
