Ask GrannyK: Coffee

chocolate-top-cream-and-coffee-100173603I know some of you are just dying to know things.  Since I know just about everything, I thought I would pre-answer a question that is on the minds of all.

“GrannyK,” you might ask, “Why do you love coffee so much?”

“Well,”  I will answer, “There are several reasons.”

“1.  Coffee is either good or bad for you, depending upon which article you read.  I do so love something that keeps me guessing!

2.  Coffee is yummy, unless you water it down too much like I did today.  Then, it’s basically dark colored hot water.  Also, don’t put too much coffee in the pot unless you want your hair and toes to curl.

3.  If you like your alone time in the morning, drink coffee!  I find it can give you stinky breath, so people will stay out of your personal space bubble.

4.  I get my exercise when I drink coffee.  I can burn it fast to the bathroom and do so regularly after a couple of cups of coffee.”

5.  There is something cool about holding a steaming cup of coffee and chatting.  It makes me feel like I’m an adult.

So, you see…there are reasons to drink the stuff.”

This concludes another valuable life lesson from GrannyK.

“Triple filter?”

“That’s right”, Socrates continued. “Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

“No,”,the man said, “Actually I just heard about it and …”

“All right”, said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second filter, the filter…
