Sometimes I Have Sugar In My Coffee

A Steaming Cup of Coffee on Coffee Beans Photographic Print by Peter Sapper

I'm a routine person.  I like to do things the same way every day.

This drives my husband crazy.  He's a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants kind of person. 

We've been good for each other to say the least.

He's helped me to loosen up.

I've helped him to straighten up. : )

Let me give you an example:

I drink my coffee with a little milk. ( My stomach can't handle black coffee very well )

On the rare occasion that he gets up before I do in the morning he would bring me a cup of coffee. ( He's sweet like that. )

But he ALWAYS put sugar in it with the milk.

Now, it's not that I don't like sugar in my coffee--I do.

But I know that it's not good for me (sugar that is) and I don't need the extra calories.

So, I would get annoyed with him--for messing up my "perfect" coffee.

But he didn't let a little thing like my annoyance stop him.

He kept bringing me sugary coffee.

And ya know what happened?

I started to realize that variety is good.

Sometimes it's fun to break the routine.

It makes you feel adventurous. : )

So, now, sometimes I drink sugar in my coffee.
