F@ck the System: Don't stir your coffee!
Sometimes after paying 3 dollars for a liter of sparkling water I drink my favorite-est most refreshing drink in a wine glass. I don't drink anymore. So this would be my most fancy beverage, I guess. So I indulge. I'll sometimes drink 8 glasses a night and can still drive, and am only more hydrated.
Anyway, what does this have to do with 'f@cking the system'?
Allow me to explain. I was just noticing how lovely my drink looks in a pint glass. Dark rich purples on the bottom softening into disparate strains of clear up top. Beethoven underneath Arvo Part!
I realize now that for the last 10 years I've refused to stir my coffee before drinking it. Sugar, cream, hell even, powdered milk...I just shake the cup a bit if absolutely necessary!
Why? Homogeneity is boring. F'ing boring. I want my drink to change flavors as I imbibe it. I want the last sip to pack a whallop of whoop ass in the form of un-diluted sugar! I want my first sip to be nothing but cream. I want to be scared to death of what the next sip brings!
Life is a little short to be frightened of surprises. Does the 'system' (whatever that is) teach you to fear change and to therefore fall into place. I don't know. That is for minds with a better understanding of the world to let me know. I just have my suspicions. Healthy ones. Healthy suspicions are like the vitamins that keep us all honest.
But ultimately, for what it's worth, this guy here is starting a full blown rebellion by not stirring his mixed beverages!
How do you question authority?
