This is a "somebody pulled the plug" kind of morning. I feel like a deflated balloon after all the rushing about during preparation for the guys' trip. We were all up at 6am, bagels and cream cheese at the ready for the canoeists, who actually left on time to meet up with the rest of the group in the city. Since we don't drink coffee and never have it in our house....not for some noble social justice reason or anything, but because we are too cheap and too lazy to purchase a coffee maker.....our guest knew he would be stopping at the local Tim Horton's on the way out of town.
SO, I have learned a valuable lesson: never purchase coffee. Keep up our miserly standards and never purchase a coffee maker, IF we want to ensure our overnight guests depart at a reasonable time in the morning without lingering on and on. The desperate need for coffee by the caffeine addicted will lure them to the Tim Horton's within a half hour of rising. Since it is out on the highway heading homeward anyway.......hohoho! Lesson learned!
