A friend at work said, “I always wake up before I have my coffee.”
He was kidding around with me.
I told him that it was a smart sequence of events.
It would make for a wet set of blankets if you tried to do it the other way around.
I don’t know, though.
I get up quite a long time before I have my coffee….but I still think that I “wake up” after a cup or two.
I haven’t made my coffee yet.
There’s something kind of scary about going downstairs and putting on the teakettle.
It makes a little bit of noise….and a “little bit of noise” might wake up “you know who”…and if I wake up “you know who”, then….”you know what” might happen.
I don’t want to deal with the “you know what” this morning…not yet, at least.
I’d rather be blurry and quiet for a while.
And besides, I’d be like an addict if I thought that I needed the crutch of caffeine to make it through a morning…even if I really did need the crutch of caffeine to make it through the morning.
I’d be like a more self-aware addict if I admitted that, at least.
I have no secrets like that that I’d want to reveal this morning.
But…..how about that Ben Sollee?!
There are performers….entertainers….and then there are artists.
I think that Ben is an artist.
I’ve written about him before…..and to do it too often is kind of creepy….but I really enjoy his music.
There’s something very cool about a good vocalist with a cello…..very cool.
How many of those….a cello playing vocalist…. do you see these days?
Not many… that I can remember.
Here’s another one by Ben….I need to go cook some coffee.
