In my past life, I used to buy coffee at 3 different corner stores alternately because I'd drink it differently depending upon my mood. At Dunkin Donuts, I like my coffee flavored, light, and sweet. At Starbucks, black dark roast or if I'm feeling like treating myself, a double espresso. There was a third shop that had awesome cafe con leche.
In my current life, more often than not, I drink day old coffee microwaved that's half skim milk. I usually eat a bowl of Smart Start while it's heating up.
In my past life, I would hope to arrive before my coworkers so I could get back to my desk without actually having to have a conversation with anyone before the aforementioned coffee was consumed.
In my current life, my daughter does a jig when she hears me coming down the stairs and cheers "Go, Mommy, go! Go, Mommy, go!"
In my past life, my work day was often interrupted by the gravelly voice of a coworker that I (perhaps not so) secretly wanted to throttle.
In my current life, my work day is punctuated by my daughter suggesting that we play a game.
In my past life, I used to think that my coworkers deliberately tried to tick me off by redistributing the paperwork on my desk and moving my stapler.
In my current life, my daughter occasionally draws pictures in the margins of my day planner and it makes me laugh.
