A Joyful Glass Of Caffeine

When we headed to Hawaii for a family vacation I had a minimal number of demands.

Number one, I’d like $1,000 to spend on trinkets.

Number two, I’d like to look like a tan super model in my swimsuit.

And number three, I must have coffee everyday. I will not be flexible with the date I have with my cup of Jo every morning and again in the afternoon and maybe once more IF I’m burning the midnight oil.

My husband laughed at my $1,000 request, so my trinkets will be collected for free at the beach…in the form of lava rocks and polished pieces of broken glass.

On my first day in Hawaii I received a dose of sun poisoning while collecting trinkets for free at the beach that has burned my legs and caused them to swell to twice their size. There will be no super modeling in my swimsuit.

However, all is not lost.

I am having iced coffee and plenty of it as I sit poolside, icing my cankles. And every day I thank Jesus for putting International Delight’s Iced Coffee on the island of Hawaii because it really made my access to caffeine one thousand times more…accessible.

You feel less sorry for me now don’t you? Let me remind you about my sun poisoning…

Don’t I deserve every joyful glass of caffeine I pour myself? Gulping it poolside has been exactly the wonderful experience I was hoping it would be. Consider packing a cup to go next time you hit the pool…but lather on the sun block before you go!

    I hear taking lava rocks off the island is super bad juju! I don’t want you to have bad luck so look into that! No bad luck sista!

      Oh just great, that’s all we need! The uncle giving us the background of the homestead seemed to encourage it. I’ll send our bad luck his way…one lava rock coming right up!

    Sorry to hear about the sun poisoning, hope it doesn’t curb your vacation activities too much. At least you have your coffee!
