As a kid, every third commercial on during daytime TV peddled some exotic coffee. Coffee commercials filled the slots between ads for accident lawyers.

Coffee that’s so delicious it transports your entire mind, body, and soul to an exotic locale known for, Id assume, fucking good coffee. Magical destinations like Paris, Belize, and Teaneck, NJ (which is magical if the wind blows in the right direction).

This was back in the 80s when Starbucks didn’t line every avenue like street lamps and Dunkin Donuts propaganda centered around a sleep-deprived middle-aged schlub dreading a life filled with making greasy, sugar balls at the crack of dawn. TIME TO MAKE THE DONUTS! but said like its an outtake fromThe Shining.

Those commercials still exist, though updated to reflect the fact housewives don’t dream of Paris coffeehouses or attractive waiters named Jean Luc who might get to stick his French baguette in their oven before they fly home. New coffee commercials show women (and sometimes men) sipping coffee and luxuriating in a place they rarely get to relax their own house.

The makers of these overpriced ground beans implore people to enjoy the quiet of their finally empty house with a beautiful, warm mug of (INSERT CRAPPY COFFEE BRAND HERE).

Screw that.

Sure, an empty house is a fantastic place especially since I haven’t been alone in mine for over two years but sipping a cup of coffee and staring out the window is the last item on my agenda of things to do in an empty house.

Also, every time I stare out my windows I notice a lawn that needs cutting, weeds that need pulling and my neighbor avoiding his now five-year plan to finish a roof. Not precisely the Eiffel Tower or a Thomas Kincade portrait on the other side of that glass.

What’s the first thing Id do in an empty house? Probably sit down for a minute and think

Holy crap, I’m alone. What were all those things I’ve wanted to do when I finally had the house to myself? Oh, right, laundry, fix everything that’s broken, rearrange the bookshelves.that all sounds like work. Well screw that, I’m not doing work, and I’m not sipping coffee. I’ve got to find something relaxing to do.

[Sits on the couch. Flips on TV. Watches nothing.]

Shit, this is boring. I’m going to Starbucks. I need a coffee.
