Dear self —
If you botch one step in your morning routine, view that as a red flag and pay closer attention to the subsequent steps.
If you botch a second step, don’t curse and press on; stop. Breathe deeply. Regroup.
If you don’t, things
might will get worse. If you’re lucky enough to end the process with only inadequate caffeination, a small steam burn, and an explosion of dry espresso grounds all over the wedding supplies, count your blessings and back away.
