I’ll admit it.
When my coffee sends me a message, my interpretation is likely to be the most paranoid one.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters, are you threatening me?
I’m sure Stumptown meant to send a benign message of good wishes when they printed “Good Luck” inside their Original Cold Brew Coffee bottle cap, yet I’m taking it as though Dirty Harry† were asking.
You’ve got to ask yourself one question. ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do you, punk?
Blame it on my generally heightened sense of anxiety lately, but my answer would have to be no. I am, however, slightly less thirsty now, and quite a bit more peppy.
†From the 1971 film of the same name, often misquoted as “Do you feel lucky, punk?”
