good morning joe

every morning i crawl out of bed
all sleepy eyed
all croggy headed
blurry eyed

i scoop out enough coffee into my filter in my new pot
enough to make strong coffee
i pour in my filltered water
i then push all the buttons on the pot
especially paying close attention to the one labeled
i punch it and make sure it lights up
i dont know what that pot does when i push that button
it makes a good strong cup of coffee
so my tj coffee also has the word bold on it
i drink bold coffee

i was disappointed the other day when i saw where
this judge had ruled coffee may cause cancer
i thought
how can a judge make that ruling
should someone like the cdc or some coffee researcher
be telling us this
something doesnt seem right here

i gave up my cigarettes years ago
i smoked the same number of packs a day as coffee cups i
drink every morning
it wasnt hard to tell that smoking was bad for you
i started wheezing and coughing a lot when i was
in college
so i quit
as a doctor you know that things like heart attacks strokes
emphysema chronic bronchitis lung cancer bladder cancer
can all be caused by smoking

i had no problem knowing that smoking is bad for you
it will kill you

but morning joe
a cup of java
i dont think so
it cant be bad for you

for with alzheimers it may have a positive effect in slowing
down the disease
up to three cups a day may be the magic number in helping with
alzheimers disease
thats why i drink three cups a day
he makes folks alert especially in the morning
folks who drink coffee may live longer

so when coffee is made a chemical called
may be produced during the roasting process
i dont care if it does

apparently this acetylwhatchamacallitmaybeitsbad
cant be removed because its part of the process of
making coffee

we be stuck right

that can put that cancer warning on my morning joe coffee
it aint going to stop me one bit
i will continue to drink my three cups each day
no matter what the label says

sometimes you just have to do what you feel best
for yourself
even think for yourself

im sipping my 2nd cup right now
all alert and perky now
thats the way i want it

the reason that call it morning joe
they dont really know
it may be cause a joe is a normal average guy
its the drink of the regular guy
thats me
a morning joe kind of person
