It’s 5 a.m. I’m up.
Coffee is brewed.
I take the first sip.
Black. No sugar.
Ahhhhhhhh. The first sip is always the best, which is why I spend the rest of the day chasing that taste. Drinking cup after cup until I’m so high on caffeine there’s nowhere to go but down. And that’s when a small niggle in the back of my consciousness says – maybe you should make better choices.
Then again…life without coffee. Well, you know. Simple pleasures.
