Startin' my Day of RIGHT

You know those coffee commercials that show people slowly getting out of bed, tip-toeing into the kitchen in their pajamas, looking like they are hungover, or just had a very late/terrible night? then when they finally make it to the kitchen, they take a sip of freshly roasted steaming coffee and suddenly a broad smile appears across their face, music starts playing, and they look as if they can conquer the world? then the commercial ends with some comment like "drink such-and-such coffee and start your day off right"?
well, this morning the person in that commercial was me.
i woke up early (not by choice) and was having some issues while getting ready. when i got into my car to drive to work it was FREEZING. because i was cold, and it was earlier than usual, i talked myself into stopping at a little espresso shop on the corner just down the street from our apartment. ive told myself numerous times that i should try the place, and i decided today was the day. after waiting a few minutes for my fat-free, sugar-free caramel steamer and making small talk with the gentleman preparing it for me, i drove off, steamer in hand, sipping and feeling EXCELLENT. i am refreshed, energized, and ready to take on the world. i strongly suggest treating yourself to such beverages, especially on cold and seemingly hopeless mornings like mine.
