Thanks for another great article, Sharon. I once took along a small coffee pot and supplies for a road trip because I didn't know a lot of hotel rooms supply them. It was good to be prepared for the ones that didn't, however.
I got hooked on coffee while working my way through college. Sleep became a rare treat because of my work / class schedules, so my coffee pot became my best friend. One of my mutant classmates used to like to talk about how much he wanted a "brewski" (I think he was from Milwaukee) and that word became my favorite term for my ever-present cuppa joe. He had to go off-campus for his kind of "brewski."
If there are any couples out there who have ever argued over whose duty it is to get up first and make the morning coffee, the answer is in the Bible... In the book of... "HE brews."
