I’d love to understand why I always seem to end up taking more time to have breakfast than anything else in the morning. If I want to get out early, I choose to have toast. If I want to get out really early, I skip breakfast altogether. A full toast, cereal and mug of coffee experience otherwise seems to consume a solid 20 minutes. Unless I’m stood in the kitchen looking out of the window while I’m doing it, in which case it takes less. If I’m working on the computer or reading, it might take more. Generally, however, breakfast time seems to create a sort of temporal viscosity in my morning schedule. I daresay I’m actually at fault, but it’s nice to have the alternative to blame the fabric of space/time instead.
