Would you rather cannonball into a cup of coffee or dive into a mug of hot chocolate? Before you answer you should know that the coffee is a rich brown liquid with a strong bitter scent that rises with the breaking of each boiling bubble. The lip of the coffee cup is flat and steady under your feet. While the hot chocolate is a creamy brown and the slight froth makes it difficult to determine exactly how hot the liquid is. The smell rising up on thin pillows of steam is sweet and delicious. The lip of the mug is curved and your toes and heels rock softly back and forth as you fight for balance. So, would you rather cannonball into a cup of coffee or dive into a mug of hot chocolate?
If we were having coffee I would explain that on Family Day the boys and I went to a restaurant for lunch and played a short game of “would you rather…” The coffee versus hot chocolate was one of the “would you rather” questions that I pitched to them except instead of dive I used the action of belly flopping.. It was a fun time! If we were having coffee I would smile because a great side bonus of Family Day is a short work week and that is always welcome.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have a puzzle craving lately. So, part of my weekend is going to involve putting together the new puzzle I got earlier this week. The puzzle is called “The Sadness of Gaia.” Do any of you use a puzzle table? So, with having to be able to show the house I can’t exactly leave a partially finished puzzle and a bunch of pieces all over the table. I am thinking I might try a puzzle table but I am not sure what the best option is. Can anybody recommend anything?
If we were having coffee I would ask if you have given any thought to April’s A to Z challenge for 2020? I know it is around the corner but I am not sure what I plan to do with it yet.
Well, if we were having coffee I wish you a wonderful weekend and take my leave.
