10 Reasons Why I Don't Drink Coffee (Writer's Workshop)

This is in response to Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop prompt:  List 10 reasons why you do or you don't drink coffee.  This is why I do not drink coffee (Gerard doesn't either).

  1. Never started, so no reason to start now.

  2. It's hot--I don't like hot drinks!

  3. You have to make it--I'm lazy when it comes to the kitchen.

  4. I don't like the taste of mocha--isn't that how coffee tastes?

  5. Don't want to wash the cup or mug.

  6. I don't even like the smell of it.

  7. The percolator scares me--I made it once when I had guests for a home decor party.

  8. I take after my dad who never drank coffee.

  9. I don't like coffee stains on any of my things: no coffee = no stains!

10. It's dangerous, my pets or us could get burned!

The second item on your list worries me. It makes me think you don't like hot cocoa either. Regarding item #8 as applied to hot cocoa, Swiss Miss all the way.

I can't live without my coffee. I am addicted for sure.

I do not understand life without coffee. It hurts my head. :)

One of the greatest pleasures every morning is a hot cup of coffee. I get up, go downstairs and turn on the coffee pot. It's all set up the night before so that work is done. I listen to it do it's thing and when the buzzer goes off I get me a hot cup of coffee. Yummy. I've been doing this since I was about 20. Life isn't complete without my morning coffee.

Have a terrific day. :)

Oh, this is one thing where we differ. I LOVE my coffee and can't start the morning without it. Drip coffee makers are nothing like the old fashioned perculators and there are many, many different kinds of coffees with very different tastes. Definitely doesn't taste like mocha. On the other hand, if you never started drinking coffee, no reason to start now for sure. It's great to see our differences too.

Wow. I can't imagine life without my coffee!! I even have a coffee-maker for our camping stove so we are never without it--even camping!

Are you one of those people who drinks Cola in the morning instead?

Thank you!! I don't drink coffee either and so many people think I'm crazy!

I blame my dislike for it on my NICE WHITE TEETH. No bleach needed :)

I love your list! I drink coffee occasionally but prefer hot chocolate. I thought of creating a tongue-in-cheek, funny list but just couldn't do it; I was afraid Starbucks will come after me :-) Ended up writing about online friends.
Stopping by, following you and commenting back from your visit to my blog... Thank you!
Have a great weekend ahead!
