Ahhhh! Morning coffee. I never was much of a coffee drinker. I always thought it tasted bitter and every time I drank it I thought about that fancy expensive coffee that the foreign cats eat the beans and poop them out then they grind them and make coffee out of them (have you seen the Bucket List?). ICK!! Then there is the dragon breath side effect. Don't even get me started on my ex boss who drank coffee constantly and was a close talker. EEEWWW! But, when my mother-in-law was in the hospital a few years ago, my brother-in-law got me hooked on coffee with Hazelnut creamer. Ahhh! Delicious and about 100 calories per cup if you drink it like I do, ya know, a little coffee with my creamer. YUM! So, now, I'm hooked!! This is my morning escape.
One sip and I am transported to a little sidewalk cafe in Paris. I'm sitting at a little table enjoying the waking city around me. There are little old men talking by a fountain across the street. To my left there are three women sitting at a table. They are speaking french and laughing while they are eating their croissants. They are thin, very fashionable and I can't help but wonder if they shave their armpits. That's a weird thought to have, but I can't help it. Anyway, I'm enjoying my cup of coffee at this beautiful little cafe when....DURN! One of the little ones needs more syrup on their pancakes. So much for my escape from reality. As you can see, I've never actually been to Paris so I have to use my imagination to go on vacation.
How do you escape from your reality? Do you lock yourself in the bathroom? I've been known to do that, but it usually doesn't work. Thank you Lord for my imagination!
Have a good weekend!
