|Ever hear the one about how Jesus went |
into a Starbucks and ordered
a double frappe macchiato?
I mean, we might as well get authentic about it...so I asked history professor dad the obvious question: might Jesus have drunk coffee?
"My guess would be...no," concluded he. Perhaps, he mused, somewhere in the Bible it mentions Jesus' dietary habits?
In the absence of such data, I say, look at someone's coffee cup collection, and you can learn volumes about them--not anything of biblical proportions, but certainly plenty.
Mine, for example, includes souvenirs from the Rivers Music School; Boston College; that Jersey Shore institution, Ron Jon's; the Volvo place; Rensselaer, alma mater of my sister; and a red-banded cup from the Wellesley Education Foundation's spelling bee.
Nothing religious about them, unless you consider Dad's fanaticism about the Boston College Eagles football team, which could use a bit of prayer right now.
