2020 Daily Writing Challenge: October 5

And now, from Jo Hawk, the 2020 Daily Writing Challenge, for October 5!

A new month, a new try, a new kick at the can for writing here every day.

I am taking a Creative Writing class, and am free-writing every day with themes posed by our instructor.  So, I am going to post my writings here…lucky you! Today’s prompt: Write a scene that contains the following words: coffee, inflate, identification.

This morning I woke up ready for my coffee.  As I do every morning.  It’s what I like to call a routine.  Get up, feed the kitties, make coffee.  Then meditate and do my morning pages.  Every morning.  Then check blogs, blog myself, and at some point, make a second cup of coffee.  Every morning.

Don’t inflate this to more than it is:: a comforting routine that also serves to wake me up and prepare me for the day, whatever day it might be.  Missing my coffee in the morning?  Not possible.  There are just certain things I can’t do without in the morning.

If one day I can’t have or drink coffee any more?  Well then someone will be using forensic identification to figure out who all the dead bodies are buried in my yard and littering my basement.  Because without that coffee, that what will be unleashed upon the world.

People I work with these days are very lucky we are living in a virtual world.  Much easier for me to lose my shit over Zoom than in person,  which is probably good for me too,  I can easily mute myself and scream into the void without anyone hearing the vile spewing that would be that much worse without my coffee.

My point is that coffee is something I can’t do without in the morning.  That is not inflated. I can be identified by my love of coffee…and bacon.  But I won’t talk about the bacon now…

  1. Thank you for sharing. ☕☕☕ I know better than to ask you to share your coffee. I can’t do without mine in the morning either. Care for a slice of bacon?
