Coffee is right in front of me. Caffeine, alternative addiction, multi-purposed brew of life.
Problems: It may be contaminated. It may be half dishwater. It might even be the abomination that is decaf.
... only one way to find out.
I pour a cup and stare at it. Smells like coffee, non-instant, fresh brewed. Nothing floating on the surface and color isn't off.
Nothing seems wrong.
Still. I knew the look on Mary's face. Something's up.
I raise my cup, surreptitiously check the smell and surface from up close. Nothing new there. I take a sip.
... and it's decaf.
