Monday, March 28th, 2005 • 2 Comments on Hello Coffee, My Old Friend
Lent has passed, I can drink coffee again. I’ve had cravings for the stuff in the past few weeks—and days when I really didn’t think I’d honor my sacrifice. Being denied coffee—even if it was self-imposed denial—made me want it all the more. And yet, I didn’t have coffee today. Knowing I can have it whenever I want has quieted the yearning. For now.
Two things are for certain: I’ll be drinking a lot of coffee this week
I won’t be making any more lenten sacrifices. It’s not in my nature to deny myself something I want and going against my hedonistic tendencies just makes me cranky.
I predict some productive, late night writing sesssions ahead.
