A Young Man with a Lamentable Youth
Office Break Room
To coffee drinkers, romantics, and those whom carry the weight of their dependencies around their work places:
This question I hold for you is addressed to those who have regrettably lost someoneor something that they cared deeply for. It is not specifically speaking of death; more in a figurative meaning. My eyes were not quite open yet at the time this letter was written. My coffee was getting cold, so I took my mid-morning break early one day at work.
It was addressed to all whom know themselves as loving, caring individuals, whom believe they understand their world.
To those who fit the aforementioned criterion:
I leave you a cup of coffee, and a decently broad book of my lamentable youth. When you have the chance to take your mid-morning break, or any break at which you have time to read such a book, I suggest you explore the truth to what I am about to tell you, well, not quite yet. If youre impatient, and fed up with reading this letter, I suggest you skip down to the last paragraph, and divulge from its full meaning.
Im probably confusing you by now. If not, I commend the attention you've set forth to read this letter. I denote you wise beyond your years, unless your years will be shortly passing you. To you, I have not yet found your coffee cup. If you dont like coffee, thats your personal palette. Whenever you see the word "coffee," replace it with your personal addiction.
Some people love coffee, figuratively and literally speaking. Youll drink and drink, the caffeine might keep you up at night, and it might just kill you. You kiss the cup of your addiction, you breathe the aroma, and when you let it sit just a while longer than usual, it can be one of the greatest tastes.
Youve probably caught on by now--coffee, to me, and perhaps to you, is a lot like love. Some people like only one kind of coffee (Not the act of drinking it). You kiss your cup and it will fill you up with that warm relaxing taste pouring into your chest. It fills you up, less often than not, and when it does its one of the best things in the world. It can kill you, or it can kiss you. The difference between the two is a virtue of sorts. Fortitude to keep from taking too many sips in too short of time, the lack of doing so may keep you awake at night, and cause other undesirable side effects.
My advice is as follows, at the end of which I will propose my question to you, which I hope you do reply. Dont drink too much coffee. Taking-it-in in small amounts will make you happier beyond belief, especially if you find a coffee that suits your tastes quite well, and you wont get sick of. Dont find a coffee that everyone will want a sip of, its not the best way to build faith that your drink will still be there when you get back to finish it at your mid-morning break. Drink it slowly, enjoy it, and dont let it get to you when there isnt any sweetener to put in your drink one morning, it will always be refilled promptly when you speak up about it and make it your priority to do something about it.
I ask you now, would you like some coffee, or have you already had your fill for the day?
one who has learned from past mistakes to not drink too much coffee.
P.S. Stop drinking before it kills you.
