When my segment of the reality TV show, All On The Line, with Joe Zee aired last month, I certainly did not think the producers would open the show with me discussing my preference for the color of my morning coffee with an intern. Yes, I am very particular about how I like my coffee---Aren’t we all? After all, a cup of coffee does serve as my only breakfast nourishment, so I have to get this right.
Last week, I was at a restaurant with friends and the waiter asked me if I would get him fired if he got my coffee color wrong. I laughed so hard I nearly fell off my chair.
Today, a friend forwarded me a link to the Tom & Lorenzo blog post (http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/2011/12/aotl-aysha-saeed.html )in which the shade of my coffee seemed to take second place only to the fight for the Republican nomination.
Tom & Lorenzo felt my taupe coffee preference, among my other “demanding” ways were so over the top that they compared me to Miranda Priestly of The Devil Wears Prada. Should I take that as a compliment? Weisberger didn’t mean it as such; Meryl didn’t play her as such, me? Sure, why not.
Clearly, my coffee preference has gotten people in a tizzy, so I thought it only right I share with you some more of my coffee must-haves…..Yes, taupe the color must be, but I don’t stop there. Oh no! I also sip my morning coffee through a skinny red straw - so my lip gloss doesn’t get messy. And I take three sugar lumps; I’ve tried the fancy, expensive sugars or their substitutes, but can’t tell the difference, so I stick to the ordinary. I know you are shocked, Aysha liking something ordinary?
So if execs from Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts are reading my blog (hey, you never know), call me. Let’s talk business…..clearly I am well suited to be your next spokesperson
