If We Were Having Coffee

Pairs Well With… a cozy cup of coffee (as captured energetically by Karen Tobler)

Karen Coffee

If we were having coffee, you wouldn’t care that I rolled out of bed to meet you, or what I look like

If we were having coffee, we probably showed up wearing the same outfit, because great minds think alike, and that’s just what we do

If we were having coffee, you would not so delicately point out that I’m wearing (at least) one article of clothing backwards, or inside out

If we were having coffee, I’d remind you how annoying it is when you reply to me with singing and song lyrics

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I got blessed by having you in my life; even on days where you think I may take you for granted, know that I don’t – ever.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that you make me laugh harder than anyone else in my life

If we were having coffee, I’d admit that I’m usually the selfish one

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how much it means to me when you help clean up my messes or pick me up when I crumble

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you we’ve come a long way in understanding one another because of the energy and patience we invest

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that you always have, and always will, mean the world to me.

But because you don’t like coffee, I’ll be sure to buy you a tea.
