Good Morning! Or is that just a matter of opinion? Yes this is me, first thing in the morning typing away, writing this blog. Sad but true. I'm a little disheveled first thing in the day and not at my intellectual best but I'm very pleasant. Just don't ask me anything tricky, like my name. And the saddest part? I'm a morning person! HAHAHAHAHAHA! I'll give you a moment to pull yourself together after hearing that one.
Actually it's true. If I have a big job to tackle, I get it on it right away, I never let it wait until afternoon or evening. If I have to make an appointment and get to select the time, I always choose the first available of the day. When we travel, I want to just get up and go, not wait around for the rest of the world to wake up. There are just two things I need to go from the above photo to my real self and neither one of them is caffeine. I need to be vertical for at least ten minutes and I need to take a shower.
My morning shower is like a magic elixir. Except instead of drinking this particular wizards potion, I apply it. I step into the shower looking like the Wreck of the Hesperus and step out looking far closer to a real human being. Presto Chango! As my poor husband can give witness, the transformation is nothing short of alchemy. Yet another reason why, the following statement is true, " Sam don't camp". I would frighten away all those poor innocent little forest creatures.
Tim is a coffee guy. It's not that he is grumpy when he is uncaffeinated, but he certainly feels more prepared to face the day after that first cup. He isn't even particular about the brand or, in dire emergencies the quality of the coffee, as long as it isn't "foo-foo flavoured stuff". He has great appreciation for a top notch cuppa Joe, but does not turn up his nose at McDonalds coffee either if that is all that is handy.
I used to be more of a tea drinker. It was not required for me to be functional, but I do remember truly enjoying a morning mug of Earl Grey or Oolong. Or an afternoon cup, or an evening cup. You see the issue here. If I made a pot of tea, I drank a pot of tea. It warmed me up from the inside out and on a blustery New England day, I needed a great deal of warming.
Nowadays I drink hot water. I actually like it. Still warms me up from the inside out, not that I need a lot of warming here in Florida but, and I know I sound whiney when I say this, sometimes air conditioning makes me cold. Go ahead and say it, "Isn't it supposed to?" Personally, I believe that AC is supposed to make the air cool, not cold. There is a difference.
And I'm sure the biggest issue on that topic is perception. What temperature do I consider cool as opposed to cold against what another person believes to be true. For the sake of argument, let's say that other person is Tim. Or nearly any other person on the entire planet. I actually do recognize the fact that I'm just one of those odd people who are almost always too cold. And honestly, it's easier and far more reasonable for me to put on a sweater and/or drink my cuppa hot H2O than for everyone else to endure being to warm.
But I digress. My brain wandered off in a completely different direction and my fingers followed it. Sorry. I'm back now. But I should go jump into the shower and get ready to take on this day, see what it brings.
I hope that your coffee or tea or whatever kickstarts you brings you a terrific Thursday!~
There we go magic transformation complete!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
