There is only one cure for this monotony:
Yes, coffee strong enough to balance on the knob of the radiator, while I huddle beside it for warmth.
Other afternoons , I’ll venture to fetch myself an Americano, or, if I’m desperate enough, a Coke. Today, I successfully talked myself out of the latter and its sugary carbonation. Right now, I’m drinking green tea until I am able go to get myself coffee. It is a poor substitute in the midst of a typically monotonous Monday. My longing for coffee is the thing getting me through this day. Green tea, I love you, but you’re a lightweight.
Coffee time – 45 minutes. I can do this. We all can.
