Every once in a while, one should pause and take a look at what’s swirling in one’s cup of life.
Whether it’s that heady and perfect mix you thought you brewed or whether somebody has taken the liberty to crap in it while your attention was diverted elsewhere.
Whether the cup is half full or half empty.
Whether it’s an aromatic concoction that you had quite obviously desired it to be or just a whole lot of foam spluttering together.
So, what does a normal human being generally find in his/her cup? Crap, most would say but I beg to differ. Being the eternal optimist (would be grateful for kind dissolution of snide coughs here) I say we should keep stirring it.
Not allow it to clump.
Peek in sometimes.
Let others have a sip of it.
Reheat it if need be.
Add sugar to make it sweeter.
Or whipped cream if that’s the ticket.
Mostly; I think it’s just the little matter of knowing your ingredients.
