Why I Choose Coffee Over Water

During the week, I hate to say that it's quite possible I consume more coffee in a day than I do water. I wake up, get ready for work, pour myself a coffee, and quite possibly buy myself another coffee as soon as I get to the office. And some days, like today, a pot of coffee is readily available in the office. My eco friendly reusable coffee mug doesn't help the cause. Nor do my busy nights and weekends.

Yesterday, for example, my friends and I went to a free concert in Central Park. Taking the train to the city can be quite the trek, and it was super hot out yesterday. So once we got to Summerstage to see Victor Deme, Trevor Hall, and Jimmy Cliff, we mostly just layed down on the tapestries we brought along and drank wine that comes in a carton (Bandit- awesome) and bottles of water.

We may or may not have also attempted to use free beach balls as pillows...somewhat unsuccessfully.

By the end of the day we were all tired and sweaty, but we came back with a favorite new song:
Deen Wolo Mousso by Victor Deme.
We have no idea what the lyrics mean but we love them.


  1. Looks like you had a really fun time!

    Also, coffee is good for a quick jolt of energy but can dehydrate you. Balancing it out with water actually can give you more energy and makes your cells happy to be able to run smoothly. I try to keep a recyclable water bottle or cup with me during the day that I can refill. I get headaches when I have too much coffee and not enough water. But that's just me.

  2. I always carry water with me, but im thinking that the amount I drink of each are way too close in proportion.

  3. oh coffee, how to say that i love it...there are too many words and too many ways. i've been thinking about it a lot lately because no one here in provo drinks it.

    ps: you and your friends are absolutely adorable.

  4. Thanks Meg! I hope you're surviving without coffee over there, I don't think I could do it. I tried once and it was maybe the worst ten days of my life. Well, that's maybe an exaggeration, but i'm sure you understand :)
