Since I've been hanging out at hospitals so much lately, there's something I've noticed. Everyone seems to be roaming around with cups of coffee. Coming from a non-coffee drinking background, this is something I don't understand. It isn't just the morning cup to get you going either. There are coffee machines everywhere with people anxious to imbibe. When something bad happens, someone is right there to offer you a steaming cup. It seems like all that caffine would be the last thing you'd need when you're anxious anyway!
Maybe someone could give me some insight on this. Does the hot coffee going down feel comforting? Is it just nice to carry something in your hand in hard times? I know it peps you up, but I think there's something more!
I am patiently waiting for a nice hot chocolate machine to be installed. Now there's something relaxing!
