Genni peered at the heavenly coffee maker as it gurgled and spit, spewing its delicious warm liquid into her cup as she held it below the spout. Standing in the little kitchen, the sounds of the morning news networked grumbled from the living room, and she ignored it as she added milk and sugar to her cup and then headed for the couch, intent on enjoying her cup of coffee before the latest bad news of the day reached her ears.
"You're not eating the pancakes?!" Genni's roommate, Meg cried, peering over the back of the couch. Genni shook her head and settled into the love seat adjacent to the couch and television and took a tentative first sip. The liquid was like crack in her veins.
"I'll have some later...it's too early for food," Genni murmured, eying the plate of food Meg had already finished off. It was a rarity for both Genni and Meg to be off that day.
"Did you hear? They found some weird gorilla napping in the enclosure at the zoo this morning. They think it's so rare species of ape or something," Meg said, taking her empty plate into the kitchen. Genni peered at the television, that was giving off the same info, just not quite as summarized.
"It just wandered in there?" Genni asked. Meg shrugged and the sounds of dishes being put into the dishwasher reached her ears. Genni laughed when Meg came around the corner with a new plate of eggs and pancakes.
"You're eating MORE?"
"NO this is yours!" Meg said cheerfully, and sat it in front of Genni cheerfully. Genni groaned.
"This is why I'm fat, you know. Too much rich food!"
