I was trying to write an ode to coffee.
It did not work.
At the end of the second line I paused to think. I finally scrapped the idea after the word ‘few’.
While thinking I glanced at the auto suggest offering by my iPad. Fewmets. A word I met first when I was thirteen, reading The Sword in the Stone by T H White. Not really a word in common usage. How on earth did that get into the iPad lexicon?
Also known as theine, mateine, guaranine, or methyltheobromine, we know it best as caffeine. It coincidentally does have an association with fewmets via the famed Kopi Luwak .
