I think I’m putting far too much pressure on my morning cup of coffee. I drink in the aroma as it flows, liquid gold into my oversized mug and the world is full of promise. I take a sip and the bumps of the day instantly smooth… And then the kids bring out the homework that was due yesterday, the dog eats a school sock, traffic appears, work is still waiting and I see coffee for what it is… A lie! 
But then I hit my office, make another cup, drink in the aroma… Coffffeee. Gooood.
