Coffee or Cat Food
I hate when I wake up and need coffee. But I need coffee. Because I'm not really awake. Got on the computer as soon as I physically got up. Stared at it a while. Realized it was Monday, so I clicked on the WRiTE Club button to vote on the next round of stories. The cat yelled at me for not getting him food yet. Now he's on the table right in back of my laptop screen, looking at me. He's been rubbing on the stack of papers on the table and thinking about pushing them onto the floor. That always gets my attention. Sometimes I've rewarded him with food when he has done that. Because he's persistent. And he doesn't need coffee to be awake.
I think I will stop staring at this computer, and start the coffee and feed the cat. Or maybe feed the cat, then start the coffee. That's probably safer, though it delays my coffee...I think I need to go with safer.
I should set the coffee to come on automatically tomorrow morning, so I can vote at the polls (corrected spelling from poles - is anyone actually AT the poles' polls?) with a better mind than I have right now (see previous parenthetical remark). I'm sleepy. I need cat food.
