if we were having coffee

if we were having coffee, i’d tell you i’m almost out of coffee. when i went to make mine just now, the jar was almost empty. i’d tell you i put four sweeteners into my coffee. i’m trying to avoid sugar, and before anyone says so, i do realise sweeteners are worse than sugar. the real reason i use sweeteners instead of sugar is because i am blind, and when i spoon the sugar into my coffee i spill so much of it, with sweeteners, you just pop them out of the container and plop in they go into the coffee. i’d tell you that i am bored. i have been watching tv to try and entertain myself. i watched britains got talent tonight. there were three very good singers on it. 2 14 year olds and a 15 year old. the 15 year old was a boy and he had been on the show three years ago when he was just 12 and one of the judges told him he wasnt good enough and to go get a singing teacher. today, he proved him wrong! he sang halaluiyah and he put his whole heart into his performance. and you know what happened? not only did he get through to the next round, but the judge who told him before that he wasnt good enough gave him the golden buzzer which means he’s straight through to the semi finals of the show! he was so thrilled and i was thrilled for him. if we were having coffee i would tell you that my sister has gone to her partners sisters house in kilkenny. thats a drive of about 2 hours away from where we live. her partners sisters little boy is making his communion tomorrow. there are lots of children making their communion this month. may is usually the month for making your communion. if we were having coffee i would also tell you that i am watching this talk show on tv right now. there was a lady on it talking about smart phones and how no child under 14 should have one. i agree with her. most kids nowadays have a tablet or a phone or something that has internet. i dont think its good for them. i our day, you’d think i’m old lol i guess i am at 37, but in our day, there was no internet. children went outside to play. we played with wooden toys. with dolls and stuffed animals. with lego. with skipping ropes. with puzzles. we played bord games. we spent time talking to our friends, not bullying each other online. i’m all for having the internet but there is a time when it is just too much, and that is at age 7 or 8. children dont need to be exposed to that sort of technology then. i see my nephew at 4 addicted to his tablet and my sisters I phone. i cant imagine what he’ll be like at 10. and on that note I’ll stop ranting and shut up. i’m sure your all bored of my ranting and rambles. have a great weekend everyone.

  1. If we were having coffee, you would be the only one having it as I’m probably one of the few people in the world that don’t like it. (grin) We also used to play outside when I was a kid. Sometimes I wonder if all this computer stuff started early keeps children from making up their own games when they play outside.

    1. You don’t like coffee? What a crime. I love coffee, I’ll drink it for both of us then. LOL. I wonder the same thing about kids these days. Guess it’s just the sign of the times

  2. If we were having a coffee I would be very happy, I think it would be great. I have many different kinds of coffee right now, all my family consists of coffeeholics, well, besides my siblings, anyway coffee is absolutely necessary for normal life in this house. So we could bring mine if you haven’t. Yeah, it can be a problem with spooning sugar into coffee, I’m lucky and very often I haven’t to make coffee for myself, my Dad makes it for everyone, but even if I make it for myself I use sugar and try to manage with it, or sometimes I use honey. I know that it can sound weird for some people, it was also weird for me when I heard about it for some time ago, but coffee with honey is really yummy and healthier than with sugar. I also used to put lump sugar into coffee to avoid spilling. This boy was very lucky, I’d be also thrilled watching it, I think. Yeah, there are lots of children making their Communions in May here too, in my town children also make it today and yesterday was my sissy’s anniversary of Communion. If we were having coffee I’d tell you that my three cousins will make their Communion in June and I have to be there. I’m glad they’ll make it because of them, but I hate so big, long parties, they’re so boring and stressful at the same time. And I’d tell you that I agree with you about children and phones. It’s a completely bad idea to buy a smart phone for a child. My sis Zofijka hasn’t it and is a big exception in her class, she goes on the volleyball camp during the holidays and the teacher who organises it told parents that kids can’t bring their phones with them and she was absolutely surprised and amazed when my Mum said that Zofijka just hasn’t her own phone. I think it’s visible that my Mum protects her in a rational way from such things, ’cause she really differentiates from the children who are in her class and are very often addicted to their phones or tablets. But even though she plays games or sometimes even surfs on the Internet on our Mum’s phone and while she does this, she can’t think about anything else and her biggest dream is to have a smart phone. Last Friday I even talked with my English teacher who comes to me every week about it, ’cause he often teaches kids and he says that their brains are often very damaged and that few of his pupils even watched pornography on their phones during his lesson and they were in primary school. Scary! I got a phone when I was 12, I must admit, but it was necessary ’cause I was in boarding school and didn’t want to still talk with my family on the phone in the corridor where everyone could hear me. But I didn’t use it to play, I hadn’t Internet in it, so I also think that there are lots of other possibilities for children to play than sitting with their smartphones. And if we were having coffee I’d tell you that you’re definitely not boring and I like what you write! 😀 Have a nice Sunday! 🙂
