    And you can't stop eating. Let me share one of my favorite heaven jokes.

    Older couple ~80's were both killed in a vehicle accident. They arrived at the pearly gates together and St Pete started showing them around. Golf course, rivers with trout, gorgeous lodging. Crowning glory: the banquet tables of heavenly food.  The husband, overwhelmed, asked "But what about my diabetes?"  St Peter laughed and said, "This is heaven, no worries." Man turns to his wife and says:

    "You and your damn bran muffins. We could have been here 5 years ago!"

    Being atheists, we don't have the mental escape of thinking we will be able to live in food heaven for eternity. But I always figured doing anything for eternity would erode the pleasure. I have actually made coffee only once the past week - and didn't drink half of it. A day with out 6 cups of half caf seemed highly unlikely, ever. Just as half caf was highly unlikely a decade ago. Maybe I will go to 2 mugs...
