I get up seriously lately at 7.30AM . I blame it on the cold and snugly blankets we are in.
I come out and immediately feel like having a cuppah [coffee]! I lazily switch on the coffee maker and feel inside the fridge for the milk carton. Yes the carton is there, but no milk!
I lazily push myself towards the door, open it and search for milk packets. Ding! It clicks. This isnt India. No milk delivered to the door.
So I push back into the house contemplating whether I can have the coffee black. But it wont work. I have two ferocious milk drinkers still sleeping snugly unaware of the milk crisis. I sigh. I put on the heavy jacket and set out into the cold to buy milk.
Well! Its 7.45 Am now. No grocer close to me will open till 8AM. So I wander about the neighborhood.
Everyone greets the grumpy me with cheerful 'Good Morning' and a couple of 'Have a nice day ahead' greetings. My mood begins to slightly lift.
I see a quaint cafe next. Trust me, you may not have a grocery open this early but the cafes open at 6. I decided to have my Latte here and enjoy the scenery while I wait for the stores to open. I get a muffin free with my latte. I love these people. :D
After a good Latte, I go to my grocery store where I have to decide whether to take the blue top or a green top milk! Yes when I am given choices I don't want to make , I ponder around. After getting the green top one and paying what seems to me a ridiculously high amount of money for 2ltrs of milk , I return to my cozily heated apartment.
My two milk drinkers are still blissfully asleep and I need to wake them up to yummy milk :D No Milk Crisis here. Now I think , having no milk delivered at the doorstep, is actually going to be fun ME time , I will get everyday. Yippiee!
