Wasting time in a better way.

It's Friday. Finally you have the day off.
You lounge around in your pajamas till noon. Finish that book. Dream a little, about something that seems unattainable. Swim. Walk down the road for a coffee with the man of the generous heart.


Go back there later for a drink. Try the house cocktail. Army Navy: Stoli, Orgeat, lime and slush puppy ice. The flavor of bitter almonds evokes dark thoughts of cyanide and half-requited love.
Have another.
Cook for your friends.
Accept that Yotam Ottolenghi is king. Tofu shines in a new light. (Stop wondering about the book, people! Buy it. He knows of what he preaches.)

 
Swim. Underwater, in the dark.
This is a highly underrated activity.
Go to bed smiling.
