The Truth Comes Out

I’m going to spill a dirty little family secret.  

The Kistlers cannot function in the morning without caffeine. 

It’s true.  Sad, but true.  My father stumbles down the stairs, drags himself into the kitchen, and starts the coffee maker.

My mom stumbles down the steps and heads straight for the fridge.  Yes, my mom is a secret morning Mountain Dew drinker.  

Keara, well, I can’t really speak for Keara.  She’s a coffee girl, but I’m not quite sure how dependent she is on it.  

And me, well, I need coffee.  I need lots of coffee!  That fact proved itself this morning when I poured my cereal (Cocoa Pebbles) into a coffee mug instead of into a breakfast bowl.  

I glanced down, saw what I had done, and began laughing.  Then I went out for coffee.
