The Midlife Change

As they left Caffeination, their usual coffee spot, Louie took a sip if his coffee. Carly laughed at the ghastly expression on he made.

“Life’s too short to drink lousy coffee,” complained Louie. He took another taste and cringed.

“Why’d you try it again?” asked Carly.

“I wanted to make sure.”

“You’re sadistic.”

“I can’t explain it, but all coffee tastes terrible lately,” said Louie.

The two walked in silence for a few seconds. Louie took one more sip, then threw his coffee away.

“It’s so weird,” mused Louie.

“They say people’s tastes change through their lives,” said Carly.

“That can’t be it, can it? Huh. You might be right, I guess, but why’d it have to be coffee? I need coffee.”

Carly stared off into space. “Life is full of mysteries. Who can truly know it?”

Louie sighed. “Especially when I haven’t had my morning coffee.”
