Tuesday is National Coffee Day! Have Another Cup of Coffee!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Go ahead, have another cup of coffee. This week`s mug runneth over with days devoted to the beverage that wakes up nations and keeps industries humming.


According to Internet sages and the arbiters of faux holidays, September 29 is Coffee Day (also known as National Coffee Day or International Coffee Day).

The origins of this day of caffeinated celebration are largely unknown, but who needs an origin story to justify that second, third or fourth cup?"


On National Coffee Day I propose that we forever banish the nonsensical talk that coffee is a drug, and that we should limit the consumption of the delicious beverage.

Finland is No. 1 in the world for coffee consumption per capita, and the good old USA doesn`t even break the top 10, ranking 25th for java consumption. If anything Americans need to increase their consumption of coffee, we need to be wide awake and energetic to compete in the global economy.

I need to drink at least two cups of coffee in the morning to fortify myself for all the tomfoolery and stupidity that I will encounter during the course of the day.

Some coffee shops like Dunkin` and Krispy Kreme are giving away free coffee today, but there`s always a bottomless cup of coffee available at the home of every coffee lover.

I write some of my essays late at night, and coffee is responsible for keeping me awake, for that you can curse or praise caffeine.

Go ahead have another cup of Joe on National Coffee Day!
