Decent Coffee...
Author: Shiloh


COFFEE..... important stuff. Required for proper ability to navigate, breathe, see, understand and communicate. Decent coffee. Strong coffee....

Now, by decent strength, I mean coffee that growls at you from the cup, jumps out of the cup and climbs and crawls up your chest to your jaw, yanks your jaw open and then flips itself up and into your mouth, stomps along the ridge-line of your tongue to the back where that dangly thingie is, takes a couple swipes at that, then goes over to the swallow hole, yells out AIRBORNE! and jumps off into the abyss, bouncing and rebounding from side to side, finally entering the stomach where it lands with a resounding THUD!, gets up, dusts itself off, and stomps over to the wall, where it falls against the side with determination and malice aforethought, wriggles it's way into a comfortable position, scans the perimeter for any potential grief, but none will show up out of great respect and fear, then settles in for a nice snooze of a week or so before succumbing to the stomach acids, which are reminiscent of AIT training... occasionally elbowing the stomach walls to cause it to emit a loud and resounding BURP!!!, which is music to the coffee. THAT is coffee. No cream, no sugar, and TONS OF CAFFEINE, so much that the coffee must be chewed and swallowed in chunks.
