In the beginning was the world, created after six days according to the good book. He looked at it – the creator – and saw that it was good. Hundreds or so of years ago however, man had a taste of a certain beverage, dark and spunky, and finally found a way of getting through the beautiful, boring world that the creator had made. Before then, flowers smelled sweet and life went by as normally as it could but didn’t look as pleasant to the senses as it eventually did when man found his most effective stimulant. Normal life is good, man discovered, but who wants to live just a normal life? He went for a stimulating exceptional, and coffee took the glory of it all.
And he lived happily ever after, at least usually until the effect wears out.
