"There's no point to any of this. It's just a... a random lottery of meaningless tragedy and a series of near escapes. So I take pleasure in the details. You know... a quarter-pounder with cheese, those are good, the sky about ten minutes before it starts to rain, the moments where your laughter becomes a cackle... and I, I sit back and smoke my Camel Straights and I ride my own melt."
This quote from the movie "Reality Bites" is one of my favorites. Only I would substitute the quarter pounder with a Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Oh, and 86 the Camel Straights...yuck.
For the last 2 weeks, everyday on my way to work I've stopped at Dunkin' Donuts to get the same thing: a medium coffee, 2 Sweet n' Lows and extra cream. All this yumminess for 90 calories. And the absolute best part? It totally curbs my appetite. No wonder models exist on coffee and cigarettes. Of course this is not all I have for breakfast (what kind of a bander do you take me for??). I start the day with a protein bar around 8am.
And one day, the guy in front of me even paid for my coffee! Love random acts of kindness! And as soon as I pay off my medical bills, I might be able to return the favor!
