    As a confirmed coffee hater, I fail to understand this.

    It allows you to start the day without all the cosmic adventures of a coffee commercial.

    I don’t drink coffee, tea, milk, alcohol or pop… The question I get asked most is “Are you Mormon?” No. I guess Mormons don’t drink coffee? Good for them, coffee is a drug to too many people… No, none of that stuff tastes good to me. Just the smell of something like Blue Cheese dressing or cottage cheese (made from milk) will make me throw up, as in puke. That stuff smells rotten, bet it tastes like it too.
    Yet millions of people can’t seem to live without such a thing as coffee.
    I really got looked at funny in the 60’s and 70’s when I was at restaurant’s and asked for water instead. Back then, very, very few people drank water. It is better now, the waiter/waitresses don’t look at you wondering WHY you don’t want coffee.
    I enjoy water just fine, and usually drink 16 cups (1 gallon) or more a day.

    Me also, I don’t get today’s strip either. Must be only coffee drinkers can understand it. LOL

    After yesterday, I don’t want everybody to think I’m applying for “Official Arlo and Janis Explainer”….

    And this might be wrong….


    But I’m thinking that Janis recently switched from buying expensive coffee store beans to supermarket canned ground coffee.


    Now she’s congratulating herself for being correct in her hunch:


    Arlo, in his morning state, doesn’t even notice the difference.

    I don’t get it either but I am not going to launch into a column of all my likes and dislikes.

    Arlo has the same look on his face, “Ah nector of the gods” as if it were high dollar brew.

    I like coffee, but I don’t get it either.

    @Ken Chevy

    Arlo simply doesn’t appreciate the expensive stuff so why waste the money? As for coffee being a drug, the same argument could be made for sugar or any substance that kick starts your system. Now they say a couple of cups of coffee a day doesn’t hurt your body at all.

    @SusanSunshine

    I agree, but have you seen the price of supermarket coffee lately?
    Holy carp(sic)!
    I can only imagine what the gourmet stuff costs.

    Ken Chevy, I hope you’re drinking filtered water. The stuff that comes straight out of the tap is not good for you either.

    Gourmet coffee to Arlo is as Perrier in Luddie’s water bowl.

    Tap water is not good for you? US tap water is highly safe, it equals some of the bottled water that is sold.
