Coffee Analysis Project #3
Aloha from New Zealand!
Welcome to the CAP, where I analyze the personalities of readers who send in a photo of their typical morning cuppa. Of course this is all scientific and legit and I am totally qualified to do this and the results are always 100% accurate.* Without further ado, let’s dive into this week’s submission.
*totally not true
CAP #3 is sent in by DW in Kaneohe, Oahu.
Our pal D is an ADVENTURER! She doesn’t shy away from anything. Brekkie in New Zealand? LET’S GO! Chili powder in her cappuccino? Okay! Wood shavings on her oatmeal? Bring it!
That’s right, this photo was taken in NZ. I know I ask that people send a “typical” morning coffee photo, but for D, this is typical. She happens to live in Hawaii and puddle jumps over to her homeland on the regular. Just another day in the life of an ADVENTURER!
D is brave and lives life to the fullest. I think she must also have a steel-lined stomach because this setup looks serious, does it not? I’m pretty sure right after she finished this, she climbed the tallest mountain in NZ and went for a swim in a glacier lake. Then descended the mountain, had another coffee, and spent the evening holding court in a karaoke bar.
As my mom used to say, “that’ll put hair on your chest!”
The kiwi is the national animal of New Zealand. If you look closely, there is a shadow of one in the upper left corner of the photo. They let those things roam freely over there, and the law says that you have to share your breakfast with it if one hops onto your table at a coffee shop. It’s true—I read it on the internet. Anyway, there were more strawberries on D’s Mountain Woman Industrial Strength Fiber Brekkie but the kiwi ate them. There is also a funny story about where the kiwi pooped out the strawberry seeds but that’s out of the scope of this project.
In short, D is the kind of person we all need to invite over for breakfast whenever we can. If you have a pal like D you’ll be sure to have lots of sunshine, island vibes and strong coffee in your life. And who couldn’t use that?
