I realized, while walking my daughter to the bus stop, that I should talk as little as possible in the morning until after I’ve finished my first mug of coffee. Seriously, I don’t make very intelligble sentences. It is a feeling like, ‘wow, I used to be able to speak this language, but I’ve forgotten it all overnight’. That first mug, while brewing is still happening – black gold. That’s all there is to it. Can I get an ‘amen’?
