First, I was going to take a few extra minutes and go to the really good coffee shop on the other side of town. On the way back from there would be a quick stop at the best bakery where the donuts were only an hour old and might still be a little warm.
There was a news stand in the parking lot there which would let you get the Sunday paper at the weekday price. I had been going there since college and no one had ever fixed it. Sometimes I found it to be a moral dilemma – but told myself that it was karma catching up to me for being a good person.
After really good coffee, great warm donuts, and a nearly free Sunday paper, I would head to the park. There was a spot with a bench overlooking the river sheltered by the blossom of spring bushes. Just a few hidden feet away from runners who would pass by with the light steps of a fast pace while I watched the ducks drift down stream looking for a spring fling.
As I made my way down the three flights from my apartment to the car I took joy in the list again making certain I would get the order right: first coffee, then donuts, paper, and off to my space in the park by the river - But first….
....First I need to wash my car.
Just a friendly reminder, if you are interested in being a part of the Great Mix Experiment of Aught Five (GME05) CD’s need to be submitted between Christmas and New Years so the best of 2005 can be delivered in January. See More Details Here.
