I’ve spent the last couple of days drinking really strong chai. I don’t typically drink chai, or any other flavored tea for that matter. I am a coffee drinker. I love a good cup of coffee. But, I’ve had this nasty head/chest cold since Monday, and coffee just hasn’t tasted good.
I know, right? A travesty. A true travesty.
So, I brewed chai as thick and strong as I could stand it, just so I could taste it.
While I was bemoaning the trials of tasteless coffee, I had to chuckle at one of my all time favorite coffee mugs…
Maxine , of course! I just love Maxine and her sarcastic wit!
I’d drink flavored tea if the flavor was “Really strong coffee.” Love. Her.
Of course, here I was, drinking really strong chai out of a Maxine mug that decries the value of flavored tea. Ironic, huh? Well, I didn’t want to waste my good coffee on useless taste buds and I needed caffeine. I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. You try being a nice Mommy with no taste buds, a head/chest cold, and no caffeine! Nope, I had to sacrifice the chai.
Anywho, I thought I would share some of my favorite Maxine funnies with you.
And a few more quotes for the kicks of it…
“Coffee is like a kick in the attitude.”
“Caffeine is for people who feel they aren’t irritable enough on their own.”
“Yelling really loud can sometimes ease tension…and sometimes it makes everyone else in the library jump out of their skin.”
“To stay relaxed in today’s frantic, stressful world, you have to force yourself to stop & put your feet up. I put mine up just high enough to kick the butt of whoever’s annoying me.”
“Forgive me if I snap at you, I’m myself today.”
“Ever feel like you’ve had too much coffee? Me neither.”
