What’s Your Poison?

Mornings for me require coffee.

I was a major klutz the other day.  I had just filled my no-spill coffee cup with fresh hot coffee (and crème brûlée creamer, natch) when I went to grab it, I apparently hadn’t secured the lid…well, securely.  And since I was grabbing it by the lid, only the lid stayed in my hand and the entire coffee cup dropped to the counter then tipped over.  The ‘no-spill’ option of this cup only works if the lid is on correctly.  Ooops.

Luckily I didn’t get doused with the scalding hot coffee, but it was a ginormous mess to clean up.

Not only did it spill on the counter, but it ran down the front of the under counter cupboards, the front of the dishwasher, and covered half of the kitchen floor.  When I make a mess, I do it big.  In retrospect, had I been a good blogger, I would have taken a picture of the mess before cleaning it up.  Alas, I did not.  Just trust me when I say it was a bear to clean up.

It also proved that I really did need another cup of coffee.

Which brings me to this week’s question:

What is your ‘must have’ in the morning to start your day?

Have a great weekend!

  1. Coffee and laptop and a couple hours of quiet in the house…that is what I need.
    I can just imagine the mess

  2. OH I hate when I do that. My coffee pot sits between the sink and the stove. Invariably it will spill towards the stove NOT the sink. Yeah I am a coffee girl too.

  3. Coffee. Must have coffee. And if the morning drive to work is brutal, I have some organic creamer stashed in the breakroom fridge for a second cup in an emergency.

  4. Oh dear >.<

    I'm so glad to hear that you were not scalded in the making of your klutzy morning moment! Hey, at least you can blame it on the morning 😉

    My must have is a nice tall glass of water!

    Happy Friday 🙂

  6. Lately, it’s been a coffee energy drink, but usually I drink a Lifewater in the mornings to start my day with something a little healthy so I can feel better about eating poorly for the rest of the day!

  7. I’m not much of an anything in the morning type of gal. I’m usually not hungry until lunch time and I’m not a coffee drinker. I guess you can say I don’t need much in the mornings. ;D

  8. So glad you weren’t burned!

    My morning must have? nothing really. All I do is pray or I like to have music to shake me up a bit. now that I”m getting older, I’m feeling a bit more exhausted so I’m wondering if I need some coffee or something to wake me up.

  9. I have got to have my travel mug of coffee (with a spoon of sugar and a spash of carmel machiatto creamer) before I get in the car for the drive to work.
    If I don’t get my coffee, I am dragging until mid-morning…

  10. French Market City Roast Coffee with 2 tablespoons of coconut milk and 3 drops of liquid stevia in my “It’s Okay To Be Takei” coffee mug. Well, 3 of those to be exact.

    What – me, OCD? Naaahhhh.

  11. Don’t worry about not taking a picture…just be glad it didn’t touch you! My must have is a shower. I drag without one!

  12. My must-have ceremony in the morning is a drink-yoghurt with some cakes and a nice strong espresso. Without these, I never can start with a day.
