Feenin for Java

So it is Mr. Wonderful's birthday on Wed and while I've already gotten him a present, do you know what he asked me for? A yerba matte tea gourd. I know. Great Buddhist monks on fire, what in the world is a tea gourd?

Years ago, when he started his regime of all-night typing fests, the love of my life was a bona fide coffee freak. After two years of a gallon a day habit, his body began to resist the caffeine. Now one cup induces a cold sweat and hallucinations. Like a heroin addict being weaned off through methadone, Mr. Wonderful is using yerba matte to treat his coffee addiction. Nevertheless, the gourd is a whole different thing. I suspect he wants one because it reminds him of a coconut and our time spent vacationing in tropical places.
