Postcard #105: "Coffee"
When I was younger my mother flipped out at me when she found my stash of coffee pills I had wrapped in a paper towel. In High School I never drank coffee and this was before “energy drinks” but I would on occasion pop a “No Doz” to stay up and study or wake me up in the morning after staying up late. I was no Jesse Spano. She called me stupid and reckless because I had a heart condition (which I am positive was just a symptom of my anorexia, at the time). So now that I am older I drink coffee all the time…and my mother has yet to burst into the bathroom while I’m naked in the shower and complain about the extra large Ethiopian yirgacheffe with milk and raw sugar that I drank. Every day this week.
