Um Coffee Whitener?….


While thumbing through my journal today I came across the hysterical notes I had taken about this little gem during my flight. That’s right folks, not creamer; whitener for your hot cup of joe. My semiconscious thoughts on the matter after watching 4 consecutive movies on a plane were quite entertaining. I don’t know how I forgot to write about this earlier, but I’m sharing my unaltered thoughts, written in the middle of the night somewhere over Europe with you now.

“Excuse me, can I have some whitener for my coffee?”

Clearly we aren’t concerned with the velvet creaminess of our coffee, it’s a purely cosmetic additive. It’s just more visually appealing to have my coffee a few shades whiter. Only the Tom Waits’s and Judi Dench’s of the world drink black coffee. The rest of us like it a nice shade of eggshell beige. Glad I can stop pretending to like soy milk in my latte. Now that I know its strictly for color altering I can just start grinding chalk dust into my mug. Good grief.

  1. Ummm. What about coffee darkener for those that may like their coffee extra dark? Just sayin’. Gee. I crack myself up sometimes.
