...To eat a real breakfast and wash it down with Actual Coffee. I had to fast for twelve hours going into yesterday morning (yeah, blood work, my doc had a loooong list of things she wanted to check) and it was worse than usual -- there's no taking ibuprofen on an empty stomach and we were fresh out of acetaminophen (paracetamol, for those using the Queen's English) . Stumbled into work and into a minor crisis before I was able to even think about a candy bar or a hot caffeinated beverage.
So a simple sausage/egg/potato/onion scramble and a cuppa' joe is a plan treat. --Come to think, last night's canned chicken and dumplings (revved up to corn chowder with the addition of canned tomatoes, beans and corn -- cook it up on the side and you can fine-tune your own soup plate.) was pretty darned ambrosial, too.
