Recently my trusty coffee maker up and died. Kaput. No warning. Dead. Now, normally I’d head out to buy a replacement right away, but I had an early client scheduled so I had to leave the house without my usual wake-up cup. Not a good morning.
Actually not a good morning for a lot of reasons. In fact, it started with my lack of caffeine and it went downhill like a runaway freight train from there. I had to deal with a high-energy Irish Setter, a high-strung dog owner, and a call from my stinker of an ex-husband. All without caffeine.
Now as a pet therapist, the pet/pet owner problems were right up my alley, but the call from my ex… Let's just say if I’d know it was Geoff, I sure as shootin’ would not have answered the phone.
After my appointment I drove directly to the Koffee Klatch where the barista started my latte as soon as she spotted me. And then coffee in hand, I headed to the office. Things were looking up. It seemed like the day was improving. But that was before the drop-the-package-and-run delivery guy, the forgotten feline, and the dead body. (If I've piqued your interest, you can read all about it in Book 8: Downton Tabby.)
I understand not everyone is a coffee drinker. Point in case, my cousin, Melinda, isn’t a fan. She's all about her chai tea latte. But it does seem like most people have something they use to kick start their morning. What about you? Do start the day with coffee or some other beverage?
