If we were having coffee, I’d wish you a Merry Christmas or even a very generic Happy Holidays if you prefer while sipping some hot apple cider instead of my usual brew. I can brew up some coffee or tea for you if you’d like, or I could nuke some cider for you like I have for myself. It’s a good drink when the weather’s cold like it is now. I’m no fan of the cold, but I do like a good sipping hot beverage!
It’s been a mixed week for me. Monday kicked off and kicked my butt. I got some sort of sinus bug or some such that had me feeling puny until Wednesday, so there was a sipping of a different kind the first part of the week. Dayquil sipping is what I’m talking about. Not exactly a great start to the week.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that it’s been one long week and I am so happy that the weekend is finally here. I have for your sipping pleasure tonight, coffee, tea, apple cider, and of course water. I think I’ll have a bit of the apple cider while we sit, listen to some music, chat, and just relax a bit.
What’s on? One of my favorite playlists. The Black Crowes, “She Talks to Angels” just finished playing. I’d say that it’s a bit odd that a song of a girl using drugs, presumably heroin, is so moving, but it is.
If we were having coffee, I’d offer you up a nice cup of Seattle’s Best that I just brewed up. Since I’m up getting you a cup, I think I’ll get a refill for myself. This is good stuff! Coffee not your thing? I’ve got some green tea, oh and some apple cider that is really good heated. It’ll just take a minute or two.
So, we stayed in tonight. The original plan was to ride over to dinner and a movie after work. We thought we’d see “The 15:17 to Paris,” but that didn’t happen. I discovered on the way home that our route to the theater had been blocked by a head on collision. It would be four to five hours before the road opened said the nice State Trooper that detoured my drive home.
