shhhh! sometimes secrets are not meant for only one
sharing harmless secrets generates a little Lucy type of fun
each morning when Mr. Fussy pours his morning cup of brew
He's unaware that I've been adding a tsp of cinnamon or two
I started with just a drop and each day the amount goes up
Leaving him unaware he is reaping healthy benefits in his cup
He is getting fiber, iron, magnesium while it lowers his cholesterol & sugar as well
New studies find The aroma may help memory and cognitive skills too, its a bit too early to tell
So why not just tell Mr. Petals the truth about his daily cup of tampered morning Joe?
He will then swear he thought it tasted unusual, an intuitive certainty I just KNOW!
I trust my fellow bloggers aren't blabbers and hope I don't seem a silly coffee jerk
It may be giddy, It may be daft, but I'm now quite amused with each pot I stealthily perk!
I wrote this back in April but couldn't resist re-posting (and editing) it for Sunday scribblings Coffee prompt!
I will add a little update on the sneaky situation... A few months went by and My husband CAUGHT me cinnamon-handed! Like I assumed he would, he right away said, "I THOUGHT SOMETHING didn't taste right with this coffee!"
but when I told him about the health benefits, he said He didn't mind the taste. Coincidentally, Throughout the time of my tampering, EAch and every morning I was feeling nauseous. If I didn't know better I would have assumed I was pregnant.(god forbid!) One day I forgot to add the cinnamon and guess what? I Wasn't nauseous that day!! So all of a sudden the light bulb went off! shouldn't that expression be the light bulb went on? (It's been unusually dim lately) I think my nausea started around the time of my spiking the coffee!!
Sure enough, NO cinnamon No nausea!! THAt doesn't make sense, but what DOES make sense? as usual, any little schemes of mine always backfire on me!
