It's the way he starts every day for the last 25 years.
I know this how?
That is how long ago we bought a set of four handmade pottery coffee cups.
My assurance that it was a good purchase began with "HiHoney, this cup is handmade to last." High fire clay and glazes guarantee that to be so...providing it doesn't hit the floor.
Over the years there have been plenty of assurances for one thing or another, so when the 'I'm not bossy' sign was found it seemed more than appropriate. However, 'I just know'...nothing...compared to his 25 year crossword vocabulary.
So what do crosswords and coffee have in common besides they are both morning habits? There are plenty of words out there on the merits of crossword puzzles as being an important part of a healthy lifestyle and an activity to stave off neurodegenerative diseases. On the other hand, there are skeptics who say crosswords may be just another 'Habit' with 'good and bad' prefixes attached according to one's experiences.
The same, I say, can be said about Coffee!
What say you, Sally?
