So, call it an epiphany or simply a realization...but I'm addicted to "the joe". Coffee that is. I'm not particularly proud of it but I am. I think I realized this last week as I ran out of my fabulous Gevalia French Vanilla blend. I went 2 days without "the joe" and by Thursday morning I realized that I was sort of transforming, if I may, into another person...a scary "joeless" person! And this week I catch myself thinking, "OMG, how am I going to be able to get my "joe" before I push off on the river this weekend?" Shouldn't I be worried about more pressing things? "Whoa", I thought, "who am I?" I never in my life thought I'd get addicted. I didn't even like the stuff a year ago! Being a psych major I attempted to diagnose myself. "Maybe it's bipolar disorder, maybe it's schizophrenia!" Nope. I had "joe deprived" disorder. It's a complicated disorder with many different reported cases and symptoms. I realized I had to accept my diagnosis and move on. So that very day I set out to find a store bought brand of "joe", see I'm spoiled and I've never purchased "the joe" from a store...I get my dear Gevalia sent to me! I purchased the Seattle's Best Vanilla Bean to try and I have to say I love it! This "joe" along w/my Vanilla Nut "joe" creamer is the perfect combo percription! So for now, no intervention needed.
