Those of you who know me already know that I LOVE Kahlua and coffee. LOVE, I say.
To those of you who don’t know me, let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, my senior year of college, my roommate, KB, and I finished our finals SUPER early. I mean, finals week ends Friday, and by noon on Monday we had turned in all of our papers and finished all of our exams. HOME FREE!
And so, we decided, we must celebrate! And how did we do that, you may ask? Well, we were over-committed college students with no free time, so our apartment was kind of a sty after a quarter of hard studying and no cleaning. So we cleaned and drank coffee spiked with Kahlua and watched Love Actually all day long!
(And then we spiked our coffee the next day. And the next day. Until eventually, it was an ordeal. You know, if by “ordeal” you mean AWESOME.)
Since then, each year starting on December 1st all the way until the New Year, I put Kahlua in my coffee every single morning. Yes, EVERY morning. Even when I’m hungover. Even when I don’t want it. It’s a tradition, damnit!
So if you’re feeling blue, or (on the opposite end of the spectrum) if you’ve just finished finals, spike your coffee with some Kahlua and join the party! I swear, it’s worth it.
P.S. If you liked that story, you should hear about the time KB and I moved out of our apartment and got high on Clorox. And then we drank a bottle of wine! Ahh, good times…
