A Question of Taste
Unimportant, you say? Trivial? If I'm remembering Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai correctly, matters of great concern should be treated lightly, while matters of small concern should be treated seriously.
It is the way of the warrior to spend the morning comparing the merits of tea versus those of coffee. If a warrior's head were to be suddenly cut off, he should still be able to perform one more action with certainty.
So would it be tea or coffee?
