Speaking from experience, breakfast in bed solves all the doldrums of waking up in the morning. Bidding farewell to your slumber is a cinch when you have a fresh cup of coffee, eggs over easy, and fresh-squeezed orange juice waiting for you. It doesn't matter who's serving it up — mind you, a handsome gent holding a silver platter doesn't hurt — just that you're still pajama-clad and haven't so much as lifted a finger.
