I am drinking a mug of beef bone broth on a rainy early afternoon. I don’t like it as much as chicken bone broth I’ve had in the past. But I am reading a book set in rural France, and the shining quality of the prose (Matthias Enard) is not affecting me as much as the constant refrain of all these country people drinking aperitifs. I closed the book at one in the morning and just lay there for half an hour thinking about a life of drinking aperitifs every day.
I could right go a vodka gimlet and a few slices of saucisson sec right now, and just daydream about a life of aperitifs.
I’m going to grind myself a shot of Kenyan peaberry coffee instead. Sigh.
