I think it was The Rock that once said, “Do you want to sleep in….??…. IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU WANT!!!!”
When you have an eight month old your needs and wants are no longer ranked in the top 100 things of importance. You can’t keep up with this little man. Kid is taking business calls at 6AM.
Therefore, it is necessary to keep pounds of coffee on hand. So what happens when you wake up to this:
Hot chocolate and a random Dunkin decaf.
Well the fear and desperation and realization that you are going to have to face 6AM with a fully awake eight month old tends to get your brain working in overtime… And boy did it ever.
Let me introduce to you to the process that led me to the invention of the millennium:
STEP ONE: Freak the hell out when you realize there’s no coffee.
STEP TWO: Calm down… And think your situation through.
STEP THREE: Take inventory of your materials.
STEP FOUR: Use what you have and begin working!
STEP FIVE: Experiment.
STEP SIX: If at first you don’t succeed, try-try again.
STEP SEVEN: Give it another go.
STEP EIGHT: enjoy the fruits of your labor!
