The Art of Manipulation

Today's Cup of Life pours a steaming cup of a rich, simmering Italian Roast. I like this brand occasionally and always wonder why I am so indecisive about this blend. I just can't quite make a decision about it....is it really the right blend for me? After my first sip I remember why I vacillated in the first place. The blend manipulates one to think that it is going to have a somewhat bold, yet rewarding flavor. But no! The flavor is bitter, even with cream, far too strong for my liking. Now I remember why I vacillate over the Italian Roast. It just isn't what it claims to be and it manipulated me once again. The question becomes what to do with the bitter tasting pot of Italian Roast? Finding myself in this situation once before I unfortunately acted on pure emotions and threw the full pot of bitter Italian Roast out. I immediately regretted that. After all I am not a wasteful person and once committed, I complete a task. So, here I sit on this beautiful morning listening to the birds sing the first songs of the day, staring at an almost full pot of bitter Italian Roast. Damn coffee! The bitter Italian Roast is really an Espresso in disguise. After contemplating the pros and cons of once again finding myself taken in by the bitter Italian Roast, I have decided to beat it at its own game. Not only will I drink the bitter pot of Italian Roast, I will enjoy it and quite possibly drink it every day for the foreseeable future.
