Re: Your Onboard Coffee Fix
Coffee slut. That's funny.
No denying I'm a coffee addict and will drink anything I have to. Emphasize, if I have to.
Just a couple of seasons back, I began to get a severe headache on passage at about 10am. We were in fog, with visibility of a couple hundred yards at best and crossing the Buzzards Bay shipping channel on our way to the Vineyard. While these would be all hands on deck conditions, by 11am I was curled up in the corner of the cockpit, trying to sleep to avoid the stabbing pain in my head, with my wife alone at the helm.
Later that day, I'm reaching in the cabinet for more Advil, which hasn't been working anyway, and I finally notice the bag of coffee in there is decaf. The regular was empty (although more in the pantry). I asked if that was what she used to make coffee that morning and she said yes, without realizing it was decaf.
Addict is admittedly not a good thing.
