Sometimes I feel like I'm channeling Rowan Atkinson.
I get up early, read a little email, and decide I'd better drink something hot and wake up. I'm avoiding brewed coffee for the sake of my stomach, so I've been making hot chocolate. The only problem this morning is that the Swiss Miss is nearly gone. There's not really enough left to make a good cup. So I decided to add a touch of instant coffee, and a dash of cinnamon and call it good.
I put the kettle on, then poured the last teaspoon and a half of Swiss Miss into my cup, and added my tiny dab of instant coffee. The kettle wasn't ready yet, and I grabbed the bottle of cinnamon and shook a little into the cup and the lid fell off the shaker and about a quarter cup of cinnamon fell on top of the only hot chocolate mix left in my house.
I scraped out as much as a could with a spoon before I put the hot water in, but even so, once hydrated it was mud. Very strong-flavored mud! Fluffy mud. It wasn't nice at all, very nasty consistency. Bleah!
I did salvage something, but it wasn't easy.
And how was YOUR morning?
