ON THE BACK BURNER

April8

I drink coffee all day long. And often, just before bed. I seem to not be sensitive to caffeine. Which ,I understand, is a good thing. I often drink the same cup of coffee all day. i take a few sips, get distracted, put the cup down, and several hours later, do the same thing ,with the same cup. Only now, it has less coffee in it. I drink hot coffee first thing in the morning. Absolutely nothing tastes as good as this first cup. After that it is room temperature coffee. I don't understand why coffee has to be reheated. People drink iced coffee, so why not room temperature coffee. Maybe ,like gefilte fish, it is an acquired taste. I drink my coffee strong and black. No sugar. I learned how to do this by having coffee every morning with a Swedish neighbor. She made coffee using a method where you boil the water and grounds in a pot and then crack an egg into the pot. The grounds mysteriously clump around the egg. You then throw out that coffee grounded egg. It was really a good cup of coffee. Now I am a slave to my sophisticated electronic coffee machine. Some days I long for my old Mr. Coffee machine. Sigh.,
