Coffee as a means to the end of laziness.
There is something romantic about coffee in the morning that you have to move on from. I seem to always miss the deadline, around 11AM, when one should get up from the coffee and newspapers and email and actually begin the day. I would choose to have it last forever, the posturing moments structured around my double short soy cappuccino. While we were leaving our favorite coffee bar the other day, one of my best friends remarked to me, "Some people aren't alive before their coffee in the morning. I'm glad we aren't like that", or something to that effect. He said that we like it as a ritual, but it's not strictly necessary. I wasn't so sure.
