I'm sitting at Panera Bread drinking a Diet Pepsi.
I wondered when I ordered it along with my bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich (on soft grilled ciabatta bread--yum) if the woman assumed that I'm "one of those" people, non-coffee drinkers who load up on diet soda at insanely early hours of the day.
Well, I'm not (though no doubt I've offended those of you who are -- no offense meant).
It's just that I had more-than-enough coffee this morning at home, and thought an icy soda would go great with my warm sandwich (and it did).
Looking out the windows here, the sky is blue. It's bright and sunny. It looks like a beautiful day.
But it's not.
It's cold -- below freezing with a predicted high of 39.
These days always trip me up, especially when there's a little wind, as there was yesterday. How can it be so unpleasantly frigid when it looks so beautiful?
I guess one could ask that question about so much more than morning beverage choices and sunny days, but I'm not going to go there on this Friday morning. Let's stick to talking about the weather.
