What Coffee, Alcohol and Jazz Can Teach You About Yourself

I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was about 25. Didn’t have the taste for it. Too bitter. I liked my drinks sweet, like Coca-Cola, Pepsi. Not that diet bullshit that everyone is addicted to now. The real shit. The one with all the high fructose corn syrup, the one that makes you fat. I was fat then. I didn’t give a fuck. I loved it. I’d drink a two-liter in one sitting.
