Fun Fact Friday - 05/09/14

I'm going to try to start  "Fun Fact Friday" where every Friday I'll come up with a fun fact about myself, just for fun.  I was just sitting here in the weather center thinking to myself, "I'd love a cup of coffee right now".  Fun fact:  I LOVE coffee.  I drink a lot of it.  (probably more than I should)  When I use to work on the morning shift, people would always ask me how I looked so awake at an ungodly hour.  My answer was always... COFFEE! 

I picked up drinking coffee like most others.  It was in college when I'd be up late studying for a big test the next day.  My mother always told me if I was going to drink coffee, drink it black.  It's easier to order and it has no calories.  So I did.  Now I like drinking black coffee for the taste and smell of it.  Don't you just love a hot cup of coffee?  And is it just me, or is the coffee at the end of dinner the best tasting coffee you can get.  Why is that?  Yum.  :)
