Way before there was ‘Cocaine Bear’ there was the dreaded and fearsome Coffee Bear. Trust me, you really don’t want to get between him and that delectable cup o’ joe. ’Tis a dangerous place to be.
I too tend to be a bit surly in the morning before having my morning pick-me-up and have sometimes been compared to a grumpy old bear in the wee hours of the day. After half a gallon or so of a well caffeinated brew I can actually manage to hold a conversation.
