“A morning without coffee is like sleep”

An advertisement that ran in the 1970s told people that “A day without orange juice is like a day without sunshine.” What is a morning without coffee?

“A morning without coffee is like something without something else” is cited from 1994 and is still used as a slogan on some products.

“A morning without coffee is like sleep” is cited from at least 2000. The slogan is popularly printed on coffee mugs and on some T-shirts.

My Morning Schedule
CMHL posted her take on “Rawhide” the other day, along with her typical morning routine. In the interests of not posting anything too huge in her comments, I thought I’d share this morning’s schedule as it was fairly typical.

Foreword…
I may have mentioned a time or two that I am nocturnal by nature. I don’t willingly do mornings. My coffee mug at works says “A morning without coffee is like sleep.” and I mean every word of it.
