Yes, I’m starting with coffee this year. (It was day 3’s winner last year.) Why? Because last night was Halloween, I have a pile of papers to grade, and I’m pooped. Coffee is just plain necessary right now.
I do love my coffee – I take it with just a little splash of milk. It’s a necessary part of my morning routine. Last year, I wrote this poem and I think it captures how thankful I am for my cup o’ joe:
Oh coffee, how I love thee.
You help me out when I’m sleepy.
You’re dark and roasty,
You make me warm and toasty,
Get in my mug right now.
