Jim loves his coffee
Even if it is thick sludge
Call me Java Jim!
“Jim, how can you possibly drink that crap from the break room? I don’t think it’s really even coffee, I think its sludge.” Blair teased.
“I’ll tell you why I drink it…” Jim thought a moment and then realized he knew the answer only too well. “I drink it because it’s free.”
“So if they were giving free poison out, you would be the first in line?” Blair asked seriously.
“No, just java. I love coffee and the stronger, the better. It’s good coffee, Chief.”
“I’d rather pay Starbucks and get good coffee.” Blair was still snubbing the coffee Jim had brought him.
“I’ll drink yours if you don’t want it. Just call me Java Jim.” Jim grabbed Blair’s cup and began to drink the offensive brew.
“I’ll just call you insane, how is that. Java Jim…” Blair walked off laughing as he went to get some juice.
Jim sighed happily as he continued to drink his strong coffee. This was the life.
