Caffeine!


If my brain were an automobile, I thoughtit's driving with the parking break on.
I'd looked forward to having a morning off. I'd clean the kitchen! Get projects done! I'd be a productive morning! Yet I felt tired and dull. What was going on?
Then I remembered- I hadn't had any caffeine. Usually I start my day with a Diet Coke and a cup of coffee. No wonder I was so dopey.
I scrounged some coffee from the freezer, plugged in my old Mr. Coffee and hit the glowing red button. The machine clicked and sputtered. Soon the kitchen smelled like a Starbucks and I had a cup of it at my side.
Thank goodness for coffee! I thought, absorbed in my drawing. It's like a switch was thrown. I'm awake! Alive! My brain is a whirring blender of thoughts and ideas! Whoohoo! Better not have too much I'll have trouble holding the pen still...
Then I noticed I hadn't actually drank any.

I wish this phenomenon would work for me (with chips and beer instead of coffee). Set them out, feel satisfied at that.

Hi Linda,
If I figure out a way to pull this off with junk food and beer, I'll let you know first.
I did have some candles once that were scented like pastries (donuts, cinnamon rolls, cookies etx..) Their scent was almost as fun as the real thing.

Hi Stray,
How much coffee was "way too much" for you? In my 20s and mid 30s I drank it with impunity (including super big gulp-sized cups from 7-11 when I worked night shifts).
Now too much coffee makes me jumpy and keeps me awake at night. Boo!

varied over years but lately started 3 cups +, and that's too much. (school and hospital sent me over the edge)
