coffee

Today I decided to kick my small but oppressive caffeine habit*. Why would I do something that that? Because this morning when I was struggling with a heavy load and walking to my car my dear, sweet husband said, “Um. You’re dripping coffee all over yourself.” And then I looked down and saw that I had indeed dripped coffee from my travel mug all over my (almost) new Michael Kors skirt and I was very pissed off. So pissed in fact that I whipped my travel mug across the alley where it smashed to bits against my neighbor’s retaining wall. There’s a little bit of the Drama Queen inside all of us – it just has to be channeled correctly to come out. So, buh-bye to Starbucks, Caribou, and all the locals: The Grind, Casteel Coffee, Kaffein, – you know who you are.

* we’ll see how long this really lasts. It’s almost noon and I don’t have a splitting headache yet so things are looking up. On the other hand, I am famous for slammed doors (and coffee mugs) and dire proclamations stupidly made in the heat of anger and frustration so it’s entirely possible that I may be drinking coffee again tomorrow.

My cat Toby had to go into the vet this morning to have blood drawn for a thyroid equilibrium test and also to have his blood pressure taken. I had mentioned this to a number of people and they all inevitably made a joke about a tiny blood pressure cuff. You know what? They do have a tiny cat sized cuff. They shave a spot near the base of the tail and use a child’s finger cuff and a Doppler meter to check the blood pressure –it’s pretty cool. And pretty expensive – I walked out of there with a bill for $185.75. Toby looks a little dorky with a bald patch under his tail, but eh, it’s not like he’s out there trying to woo hot female cats, and my other cat Wendy, who has managed to psychotically lick all the hair from her belly, can’t exactly call the kettle black. I choose to look at it as less hair that will be shed on my couch. In fact, maybe it’s time to completely shave the cats for summer. Yeah, that would go over really well. Plus – when it starts to grow back - a stubbly cat? Shudder.
