Hemingway's Coffee Quote

Is it sacrilegious to compare myself to Hemingway, even if it is a comparison of routines?
It was a pleasant cafe, warm and clean and friendly, and I hung up my old water-proof on the coat rack to dry and put my worn and weathered felt hat on the rack above the bench and ordered a cafe au lait. The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and started to write. - Ernest Hemingway
This is my life with two changes:
  1. I live in AZ, so I never wear a raincoat.
  2. I pull out my computer, rather than paper and pencil.
