What do I think about when I think about life?

I was in a philosophical mood and decided to write an essay titled What do I think about when I think about life?

I started tackling the big questions. Why are we here? Why am I here? Why am I sitting here in an East London café drinking a decaf soy milk caramelized latte?

Then Steve walked past the table and I lost my train of thought. He’s got this amazingly awesome retro eighties watch where you can play video games. I asked him to join me. I really wanted to play.
