You know those quizzes on Buzzfeed that ask weird questions & give you even weirder answers? Like you'll pick between a picture of a puppy in a sweater or a kitten in a sweater, & then they'll tell you what city you'll retire to (who even comes up with this stuff & where can I sign up? #dreamjob). Anyways, Heather takes these quizzes all the time, & the other night she was having me take one that was all about coffee. I don't remember the question exactly, but it was something like: "Pick a word that describes the perfect cup of coffee." The options were things like energizing, invigorating, or nourishing. I picked calming. Which I quickly realized was the opposite of what caffeine is supposed to do. Coffee = energy. The word "calm" is supposed to be associated with things like chamomile tea, or meditation, or petting fluffy cats.
But on further reflection, coffee is calming - for me anyway. It's my calming jam. It's the steadfast moment of my mornings. It's the delicious little guarantee of my day. I'm not a spiritual person, so the routine of that first cup is the closest thing I get to a ritual. I like it. I like that minute in the morning with my cuppa joe on my walk to work. It's my time. It's calm.
