Coffee: A Love Letter

Dearest Coffee,

As hard as it is for me to say this, I think we need to spend some time apart. You see, I once looked forward to your company every week. I knew exactly what I wanted and you always provided. Sometimes you needed more cream, but it wasn’t anything we couldn’t work through together. Now, I’m beginning to smell (and taste) things I’ve always loved before but I now despise. And I have to be honest, I just can’t stand it anymore. It’s not you, it’s me.

Since we’re being honest here, I’m just going to throw this out there: there is someone else. I don’t know this person’s name. Heck, I don’t even know their gender yet but I know they are there, and I can’t ignore what they are doing to me. You see, this new human is causing me to change my thinking. I simply no longer like you, Coffee. I tried, I really did; but with each sip, I found myself feeling more and more nauseated. You disgusted me, to put it plainly.

Don’t worry though, I’m sure we can work things out. Just give me a few months and things will be back to normal. Eventually, I can bring this new love of mine together during my visits. It may be different than what we’re used to; there may be tiny hands tugging at your straw or pressing your buttons. But that’s how things need to be now and you just need to accept that if you ever want to see me again.

Until then,
Hormonal Pregnant Lady
