A Leisurely breakfast on a work day? Ha!
I stay up late. Whether the reason is getting stuck in a page turning book, “just one more” episode, or an inconvenient burst of restlessness, there’s not much time between a last hit of the snooze button and leaving for work.
However, there are the rare mornings with coffee in a ceramic mug, breakfast comes a bowl without a lid, and a there's a few moments to spare. The Iphone beckons out of habitual use, but screens await all day at work. Taking advantage of these precious minutes requires a good book.
What would you read if you had ten minutes? Personally, I like things that are entertaining, short, and easy to put down. That precludes anything with chapters, literary writing, and page turning books that kept me up the previous night. The following are a few of my favorites for such occaisions.
Matthew Inman, aka the creator of The Oatmeal offers a collection of hilarious cartoons that demonstrate how caffeine works and answers the question that's been keeping you up late "How would a T-rex do at comedy?" Ranging from the everyday to the absurd, these cartoons are a great start to the day.
You may be eating breakfast, but what's for dinner?
A boy and his stuffed tiger make breakfast grrrrrrrreatttt!!! Wait, wrong tiger...
Next time there’s a choice between “ten more minutes” and the breakfast table there’s no guarantee what will win. However, I’ll always have something waiting to read and enjoy if it does.
