Now that the cold nights and mornings are upon us, I have been having trouble getting warm in the mornings. I dress in sweats and my slippers and sit back here in my cold little corner and shiver and drink my coffee.
My office is in a converted two car garage that wasn't very well insulated to begin with.
So to combat this, I have been soaking in a hot bath for an hour before I get dressed to go to work. Gets me nice and perking warm.
This morning was no exception. There I was, in a hot bubble bath, reading my book, smoking a cigarette and drinking coffee with a trickle of sweat on my brow. Paradise. Mostly paradise, anyway.
I hear the door to the bedroom open and my wife comes into the bathroom and sets a saucer with three fresh out of the oven home made chocolate chip cookies on the side of the tub.
Now it's paradise. My wife makes the best chocolate chip cookies in the world. And when they are fresh out of the oven, still warm and sticky they are pure ambrosia.
I think I'm a little spoiled now and then.
Be a dear and peel me a grape, would you?
