Truly! Respect the brew. There are mornings when it’s the only reason you live to see lunchtime. And, I do mean you, not me – for the generic “you” meaning anyone around me.

Start your day off right. With coffee – or tea if that’s your cuppa – before you read the paper or surf the web for your morning “news.” Coffee first, then check to see what today’s outrage is or is supposed to be according to the Lamestream Media.
Remember that! First Coffee! Then, all the other shit.
OK, OK, OK! If you’re luckier/smarter than I am (highly unlikely but possible), as lucky/smart as I am (oddly rare), or even half as lucky/smart as I am (decent chance of that!), coffee should be the 2nd thing you do in the morning. But still, the 1st thing once you get out of bed. 😉
The important thing is to start the day with something good that will also center yourself. It’s important to get your mind in a rooted, good place before perusing the crap the world has for you each day.
Yeah, some mornings – especially Monday mornings it seems – are like that. We all need – or, at least I do – some hellishly strong coffee in order to function in a manner that is safe for both myself and anyone around me. 😉
But … While coffee is quite enough to invoke my presence in the morning and to wake me up in a manner conducive to civilization, it does take more than that most times to bring me to both full consciousnesses and put me in a more pleasant mood at the start of the day.
Of course, the one of my women who is something of a morning person in that she wakes up even earlier than I do, knows the proper rituals and rights to summon me to the waking world. 😉 So, in that I am one lucky devil. 😆
Yeah, that’s me. I drink a pot or two – at least – of coffee every day. Indeed, the ubiquitousness of coffee in my diet is why I almost forgot to celebrate America’s National Coffee Day last Thursday. I do, after all, celebrate it 365 days a year. 😉
But today is International Coffee Day! So rise, shine, brew up and enjoy a hot mug of java, and celebrate the beauty that is a cup of coffee.
