Day Eleven of Everyday Inspiration will bring me to catch up over a cup of coffee and say what’s going on while we drink it.
If we were having coffee now, mine would be decaf and yours not. I would be drinking very fast and you would be waiting till yours would be lukewarm.
You would be reading the news on your iPad and I’d do the same on my iPhone.
If we were having coffee, you’d have made a latte with full-cream milk for me, and have yourself an espresso.
We would interrupt each other’s reading to share interesting news and have vibrant discussions on our views.
If we were having coffee, we would like it with a home-made banana cake, or our preferred butter cookies with almonds or chocolate.
We would turn Spotify on and listen to my playlists. We would even interrupt the coffee and the chatter to get emotional about some of the songs.
If we were having coffee, that would be over the weekend, during a late breakfast, and we could indulge in a second latte, so you would join me. And perhaps more cake.
We would talk about our plans for the day and not follow any of them, but check what’s left in the fridge and make it a PJ’s day.
If we were having coffee, after two lattes, I would prepare a pot of green tea to complete our morning chatter.
I would drink two-thirds of the tea-pot, and you would mention that I eat and drink too fast.
But if we were having a coffee after dinner, only you would have an espresso, to sleep well (for God’s sake!), and I would have just one cup of tea, prepared by you.
We would want to have an orange intense flavor, dark chocolate, and after my third slice, you would smile mischievously and suggest that we buy shares from Lindt, the producer.
That suggestion would be my choco-pleasure stopper, plus noticing that you had only two slices. I would admire your self-control for choco-matters but feel no need for a role model.
Morning or evening, we would feel cozy and relaxed doing nothing, and our own things, but together.
And that’s how I love to always have a coffee with you.
