Do You Need A Heart-to-heart Chat With A Friend? Drink Coffee!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You and your best friend both have full-time jobs, families, and activities outside of work. You are eager to get together. Even though it has only been two weeks since you last got together, it seems like it has been forever! One night, shortly after coming home from work, you call her. She picks up the phone after the first ring. The two of you talk and make plans to go to the mall this coming Saturday. You will both have the day off. It will be the perfect day to get together.

At last Saturday arrives. It is a sunny, chilly December day. You dress in jeans and a long-sleeved, blue turtleneck shirt, put on a coat, and head out to pick up your friend. You go to her door, ring her doorbell, and get warmly greeted by her golden retriever. She kisses the dog goodbye, and then the two of you head out. You are off to the mall! At last it is time for some shopping, chatter, and coffee. The two of you weave your way through the pre-Christmas crowd, stand in line, order coffee, and then find a table where you can sit down. You sit down, plan your shopping adventure, and savor your coffee. There are several reasons to drink coffee when you get together with friends or family.

One reason is that coffee will warm you up. When it is cold outside, people will do whatever they can to stay warm. At home, they turn on heaters, build a fire in the fireplace, bundle up in blankets, or jog in place. They also drink hot beverages, such as tea, cocoa, or coffee. The hot beverage, flowing through their bodies, helps them to function better. They can think more clearly when they are warm and comfortable, rather than cold.

Another reason to drink coffee is because it is the perfect beverage for a heart-to-heart talk. Since it is hot, you cannot simply gulp it down and run off. You have to drink it slowly, or you will burn your tongue. As you sip your coffee, you can discuss your shopping strategy, help your friend plan her wedding, and take in the sights and sounds around you.

As you enjoy your coffee, remember this. Plain black coffee has fewer calories than the fancy coffee drinks, which will help you to keep your weight down in preparation for the holiday parties and get-togethers. Also, keep in mind that coffee contains caffeine, which is a diuretic. If you order a small coffee, rather than a large one, that should cut down on the restroom visits so that you can maximize your shopping.
