A Six-Cup Kind of Day

30 Mar

Everyday is a coffee day for me, but some days just require a bit more caffeination. I was never a coffee drinker until I graduated college, which is when most of my bad habits seemed to expose themselves (See also: making rash decisions, having mental breakdowns, listening to Top 40 radio). And since I’ve started my new job, I’ve tried to relegate myself to drinking coffee in the mornings on my drive to work, which mostly leads to me spilling coffee all over myself and blotting the drips off my pants. I’m really not a morning person.

Despite the fact that I don’t get a paid lunch break or any health benefits, my office has invested in a free, fully stocked coffee station in the kitchenette, which I have already frequented three times today. I’ve sampled the Kona, French Vanilla, and Hazelnut blends so far, and I still have the entire coffee continent of South America delve into.  Five more hours and it’ll be time to switch to decaf!

It hasn’t helped that my sister is home for spring break and I’ve been staying up past my normal bed time of 10:30 (I’m a 22-year-old grandma). It also hasn’t helped that traffic has been a beast this week, despite the lack of rain, snow, or a single cloud in the sky. The culmination of the later nights and my exhausting mornings has me in full slug mode. And since taking a nap isn’t really a viable option, I’ll just plug in the central IV and pray for the shakes.
