I love Jerry Seinfeld but at times forget why I love him so much.
He explains the ordinary in an extraordinary fashion.
His latest “masterpiece” is how he describes he fell in love with coffee.
Actually he reminds me of, wait for it, one Billy Shakespeare. Shakespeare used the very ordinary and made into a work of art we still celebrate hundreds of years later. While I don’t think Jerry will have that lasting effect, he catches the pop culture of America perfectly at times.
My favorite excerpt if you are too lazy (hey try some caffeine) to read the link.
On why coffee is so central to our culture
“I think the answer is we all need a little help, and the coffee’s a little help with everything — social, energy, don’t know what to do next, don’t know how to start my day, don’t know how to get through this afternoon, don’t know how to stay alert. We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.”
