There’s something sexy about a man who reads the morning paper, likes his coffee black and pays our bills on-time. So… grown-up.
I don’t look like a grown-up… not even close. At the moment, I’m wearing a green shirt with orange tights… and brown boots. And maybe a purple headband. Oh, and my eye shadow might have glitter in it. (Don’t judge.) And how many times did I just say the word “and?” I suppose I don’t write like a grown-up, either.
But let me tell you something… I’m starting to feel like a grown-up. Know how I know?
I don’t sleep in anymore. I watch the Today show. I go down the property to let out and feed my chickens. On my way back to the house, I pick-up stray tangerines they’ve pecked off the tree. (Yes, this counts as yard work.) And since the tangerines are perfectly unharmed, I take them inside and use them for breakfast.
Breakfast is a daily multi viy-tah-mihn, and it’s chased down with a green smoothie I even blend myself. By the time I get to the office, I feel like Superman. I prance down the hall (in my orange tights) winking at my peers. I sometimes even do that slow-motion double-gun-shake-thing with my hands. (See also: I don’t act like a grown-up.)
Baby steps, right?
And for the record, I like my coffee black, too.
In-season tangerines are the jewels in this quick breakfast smoothie. Blended with bananas for the sweet, strawberries for the sour and kale for the punch. Use the Stevia extract to eradicate any bitter trace in the kale.
