    It basically means to face reality.

    I'm sure Coffeecat has been told that. It's a pretty common expression, and it's just that, an expression.

    There doesn't have to be coffee brewing.

    I found this on the internet:

    The term "Wake Up And Smell the Coffee" was made famous by a newspaper columnist Ann Landers (famous advice columnist) from her book of the same title.

    More trivia to put in my head.........maybe that's why I have a headache. hmmm.

    I've been told it, for sure.... and my response has always been "if I have to wake up and smell the coffee, there'd better be some coffee to DRINK, too!" -- and thus I always face reality with a hot cup of caffeine in my hand.

    I think the person was telling me to wake up and see the situation for what it was, but I would have prefered a nice cp of green mountain french toast coffee....
