  1. What’s the first thing (not person) you see in the morning? Write it on a post-it and stick it there–bathroom mirror, fridge door, whatever. The tattoo thing, I dunno…

  2. I don’t mind starting the worst house chores before breakfast, but nought before a cup of green tea.
    Then later, coffee to fire up the brain. Wish I weren’t so dependent.

  3. Green tea counts. A light breakfast. Very light. Water counts, too, I think. It’s my understanding that a drink of water was the way the Ancient Romans breakfasted, before the imperial decadence set in.
