For a long time I considered myself immune to caffeine’s fabled charmed. Never stopped me sleeping and I could do days on end without a cup of coffee and suffer no ill effects. Not any more. I have had no coffee today and it has made me decidedly grumpy. I don’t have a grinder in the house at the moment, so all equipment lies dormant.
I stared at the local Starbucks (cos their fresh brewed really is quite acceptable, meaning it is the only chain that peddles consumable coffee) but the queue was way too long and it was just generally too full of people and I would have needed a couple of shots just to make me human enough to face the herding masses.
Damn it, I appear to be something of an addict.
