Too much coffee and it stays with you all day. It’s like having pancakes for breakfast. There’s something in maple syrup that never leaves your mouth.

All day I get the residue aftertaste.

Mom used to fix pancakes about once a week. And on those days, I’d be in Algebra or some other stupid class, trying to act like I’m listening to the teacher (who’s trying to act like he cares about us learning). And then my tongue would unlock another pocket of Aunt Jemima. I’d spend the next half hour staring at equations and thinking about warm buttermilk pancakes.
