Coffee osmosis?

Okay, who’s keeping tally for me?  Total cups of coffee Bennett has succeeded in tipping: 3.

Though I can’t be sure that he’d think of this as a success:

coffee spill

Yes, it’s in his hair, on his face, on his shirt, on the books, on the floor, on the pillow and down the dresser.

Yes, it was room temperature, not hot.  While I don’t have any witnesses, I swear that I had just taken two steps from the recliner to turn off the light so that I could put him down for a nap.

And… well, it’s only been this one time that he’s actually gotten the coffee on himself, but from my observation, he seemed to have a caffeine pick-me-up.  Has anyone ever tried bathing in coffee?  Does that work just as well as drinking it?

I think yes.


PS: I know a man who loved a good cup of coffee as much as I do.  Happy birthday, Charley!  Can’t imagine there’s a gift that we could give you that could compete with the glory of Christ in heaven.  Love and miss you.

    There’s almost no word, I think, to capture how you feel on the birthday of a deceased parent. My mom would have been 101 today. Hope there’s coffee in heaven btw.
