Cappuccino--the gateway to coffee

My brother-in-law, Roger, says that my drinking cappuccino will eventually lead to my drinking coffee. He calls it the "gateway" to coffee drinking.

I say, no way. Though I love me the smell of Gloria Jeans, and I relish my morning Mocha Cappuccino--Sam's instant brand, if you are wondering (I'm no die hard Starbucks girl, and I certainly don't have my own "real" cappuccino maker....the cheap stuff is fine by me)--I detest the taste (and, many times the smell) of plain coffee. Ugh.

Apparently, even my littles have picked up on my disdain.

Mommy, to Cameron, who was 'cooking' at his play kitchen: "Cameron, what 'cha got in there?" (pointing to the tea kettle) "You making some coffee?"

Cameron: "No, Mommy....we don't drink coffee, we drink cappuccino."

Well....he was right....but it's kind of embarrassing to be corrected by your three-year-old.

The gateway to coffee...HA HA HA! That's funny.

I myself prefer frappuccino, and the kids all love starbucks. It's kind of a sickness, really.

Blended in Texas said... order to truly enjoy coffee you have to drink it with sugar and creamer. Have you tried it that way? Black coffee is horrible but with some cream and sugar it's wonderfull! Just a thought... ;)
