It's Just One of Life's Little Pleasures
Often times for me, it's the little things in life that bring me the most pleasure. One of those little things I have come to enjoy in my life, on a regular basis, is a good cup of coffee with my first meal of the day. I usually get up late in the morning, so my first repast is a kind of light brunch consisting of oatmeal (or one of those high-fiber bars), pita chips (or something similar) and a serving of dried fruit (or nuts). I especially enjoy having coffee when I first get up; though truthfully I don't drink it all day, because too much of it makes me jittery and may keep me up past my bedtime. I love flavored coffees, like hazelnut, pumpkin spice and blueberry creme - they're sweet and delicious. My drug of choice is caffeine, so later on the day I will indulge in some tea and/or diet soda to keep me chugging along... in small amounts, of course. But I look forward to that home-brewed coffee each morning.
