Buzz, Buzz, Buzz... Went the Coffee...
There are many "happy" sounds in life. The sound of a child's laughter, the snap of a crispy cookie, the whisper of sweet nothings in your ear and the buzz, buzz, buzz of a coffee machine. Ahhhh. Buzzing brings joy. Buzzing brings the promise of a fresh start. Buzzing means it's time to do something!
This morning over BBC News, buzz, buzz, buzz... went the coffee. Buzz, buzz, buzz went my brain.
As I watched the dark nectar pour into my cup I gazed out over the snow-topped roof. As sugar and condensed milk glided into the cup, I dreamed of exploring new places. As I stirred to combine the goodness of coffee, milk and sugar, I thought about a warm shower, a hot breakfast and allowing my day to unfold.
The first rich sip helped wake me up. By the time I was halfway through the cup, I was alert. By the last sip, I wished the cup was full again, like the bottle of port in "It's a Wonderful Life." Wouldn't that be fabulous? A cup of coffee that refilled? Well, that is stuff of night time dreams, not daylight reality.
