“Life, within doors, has few pleasanter prospects than a neatly-arranged and well-provisioned breakfast-table. We come to it freshly, in the dewy youth of the day, and when our spiritual and sensual elements are in better accord than at a later period; so that the material delights of the morning meal are capable of being fully enjoyed, without any very grievous reproaches, whether gastric or conscientious, for yielding even a trifle overmuch to the animal department of our nature.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The House of the Seven Gables (1851)
I take Hawthorne one farther and suggest that Life, within doors, has few pleasanter prospects than a neatly-arranged and well-provisioned breakfast tray. One of the simple pleasures of my life occurs when my boyfriend brings me coffee (complete with frothy milk) in bed. I ask you, Boyfriend, is it too much to ask for breakfast? Perhaps a pain au chocolate and some greek yogurt with honey? A bowl of fresh berries? Fresh-squeezed juice? Boyfriend, are you still there or was that a door slamming?
