I love coffee, but...

I love coffee and usually have 2 to 3 cups a day. Yesterday, while collecting my boss at Shannon Airport, I stopped by a gas station to get some coffee. I was surprised that the brand of coffee they sold was Tim Hortons. Yes, in Ireland there are apparently branded Tim Horton's coffee cencessions at gas stations.

Later that morning, when we arrived to work, we got some more coffee from Puccino's. The franchise in Ennis is run by some lovely girls who serve some of the very best coffee in town. It must be said, that even though I have an affinity for Tim Horton's because of the proximity of my hometown to Canada, Puccino's is far superior in every way.

Then came dinner time. My wife and I had prepared some venison lasagne. Before this, we had some white wine and then some red with our meal. The reason I don't mention exactly which wines we had was because I couldn't taste either of them. Why, you ask??

Because I burned my damn tongue with all the F-ing coffee!! AAaagggh!
