If we were having coffee..

The fact that I hate coffee would undoubtedly come up at some point.  I don’t even like the smell of it.  Yeah, I know, that’s really odd, but it’s true.  To me, it smells like burning brussels sprouts – something that smells bad to begin with and then burn it to make it smell even worse.  And it tastes even worse, like what sludge looks like it would taste.  When I was in Egypt, I tried Turkish Coffee.  Oh…my…word!  Yuck!!!

Now, I wouldn’t continue talking about it, so that you could enjoy your choice of coffee in peace.  I would just quietly order my grande hot chocolate and be quite happy.  Yum!  I love a good hot chocolate.  Then we’d sit and talk about anything and everything we had time to talk about.

But Anyway

But, since we’re not sitting and having coffee at the moment, I will continue.  What is the attraction to coffee?  Honestly, why is it the go to beverage?  I know there are some who prefer tea, but, unfortunately, I don’t like tea either.  So, I really feel like I don’t fit into the morning beverage club.

It really does seem like a club.  The responses I get are pretty entertaining, especially when I mention that I don’t like the smell of coffee.  It’s like they can excuse me for not liking the taste, but not liking the smell is unforgivable.  Maybe I should just stop telling people I don’t like the smell.  Hmm, that’s an idea.  But I guess, by writing this, the cat is out of the bag and it’s now a known fact!

I think I may have a problem.  It’s probably not normal to have this much dislike of a liquid.  But, then, I’ve never been accused of being normal.

  1. I’m the same and don’t like tea or coffee. People are always confused as to what to do when I don’t want either and just ask for a glass of water!

  2. It’s so nice to know there is someone else out there with similar tastebuds. It is funny to watch people respond.

  3. LOL – burning brussel sprouts – now that’s definitely a yuck. I’m an equal opportunity morning beverage person – I like coffee, tea, hot lemon water, hot chocolate, and of course water always works. But you’re right – now your secret is out. Your nose knows and so do we.

  4. For some reason I couldn’t get to the bottom of your comment. Hope that isn’t a smell that comes to mind when you drink coffee.

I'd love to hear from you.
