She pushes me out of bed because she can and because I can't get up by myself when I can hear the soothing pitter patter of rain. The shower takes major ear focus and the rain is briefly forgotten, only to be re-introduced on leaving the house. Breakfast at a Purple Breakfast shop is accompanied by Jasmine Green tea and a bacon and egg on toast. The New York Times tells me much I didn't know. I leave the table feeling full and the day has just begun.
