I have always been very proud of the fact that I will never grow up. I am a child in a big persons body and I am fully aware of it. I don't like adulting that much and prefer the goofiness of a childlike existence. I know it is probably the wrong approach to life but I have always said I refuse to grow up...until recently.

I decided I was going to try to develop a new habit that I see nearly all of my adult friends chained to and that is drinking coffee. I have always hated the taste of coffee. I have been getting up before dawn even thinks of cracking for decades but I never drank that bitter gunk. My wife is a coffee hound and I thought it would be something I could try that would give us something more to do and spend time together. I hate to say it but I think I have become a coffee drinker now.

I never thought this would happen to me. I swore I would never give in to the coffee bean but I think I have become reliant. I still hate the taste but that warm sensation is very comforting in the morning. I have had friends see me with a cup and ask me when I turned into an adult. I don't see that happening. I will still be a big child but one who is a little more alert and has coffee breath. I now drink it each morning but believe me...I would still rather have a juice box. This adulting is hard.
