Coffee- to all you morning zombies this is your life source. I’m talking about you.
A bit of a different topic today. So much of my blog talks about what I’ve done,where I am and how I’ve changed so let’s dissect 1 change I’ve experienced. I used to hate coffee everything about it. Taste,feel etc… Now I cant get enough. The darker the better. I’m a morning person already so you can imagine what it does. I’m pretty much unbearable to all you morning zombies without coffee. God forbid I’m on coffee in the morning. If I get 6 hours sleep I pretty much wake up singing. I got to the fire house today jacked on coffee and moped the whole place. I love cold coffee not so much warm but I never really liked hot drinks anyways. As I sit writing this blog I can feel my skin crawling with caffeine and I want more. A few weeks ago I was getting headaches and I thought it might be a lack of caffeine I’m happy to say I now think it was the strep throat I had. So I’m back on the coffee train.
Today we had 2 calls i wasnt allowed on the first call because I’m in training and it was a mutual aid call for a nearby town. The second call was a truck that had been flipped. Luckily all people involved were ok including a young adult. Tuck not so much when we arrived on scene they were in the ambulance. We removed the battery from car made sure tuck was off and safe. Even though we could smell a gas leak no imanate danger was present and the truck was in the middle of a field. All things considered very luck accident I’m happy noone was killed. It was a good experience. I’m now getting ready to leave the fire house and enjoy what’s left of my day.
How to know if you are with a morning zombie. If your alarm goes off they will probably yell at you. If their alarm has gone off 3 times already and they keep hitting snooze.If you sing at all in the morning they will look at you with laser beam eyes that almost cut you.(Scott summers)Try and avoid eye contact until they have coffee or time has passed. They will be both beautiful and scary at the same time. Don’t be fooled by the beauty. That’s nature’s trap. You are allowed to try complaints but I recommend just being quiet.
You guessed it my next stop is starbucks. I’m addicted now. Coffee isn’t that bad for you either if you dont get a super sugary one.
History dates back to the 15th century, and possibly earlier with a number of reports and legends surrounding its first use. The native origin of coffee is thought to have been Ethiopian. 1 orginal story tells us of a man named Omar, who was known for his ability to cure the sick through prayer, was once exiled from Mocha to a desert cave near Ousab. Starving, Omar chewed berries from nearby shrubbery, but found them to be bitter. He tried roasting the beans to improve the flavor, but they became hard. He then tried boiling them to soften the bean, which resulted in a fragrant brown liquid. Upon drinking the liquid Omar was revitalized and sustained for days. As stories of this “miracle drug” reached Mocha, Omar was asked to return and was made a saint. Dude was made a saint all because of coffee and I bet many of you morning zombies would agree. It takes all kinds of people to achieve anything in this life and I hope you morning zombies dont take offense to that term because 1 of you scares me let alone more. Jokes aside taste change people change sometimes for the better I’d like to think I’ve changed for the better. At my core I’m me but I’m more open to more things. Dont get closed off to the world. Change for the better. Do something for the better. I love coffee so to me it was a change for the better. Yoda says do or do not do. There is no try. I love you Yoda but in this case and many others I say try. Sometimes if you bring a morning zombie coffee they won’t bite your head off just a little friendly advice.
As always I love you if you read or don’t. Adapt or die. Except more do more and enjoy the caffeine high.
If it’s not morning the morning zombies look like normal people.
