caffeine & me

Back in high school I worked for a gourmet grocery store in the cheese and coffee section. This was a GREAT job. In a 6 hour shift, I would drink about 9 cups of coffee....and I like coffee 'light & sweet', so it was caffeine (because at the time, I thought that decaf affected the taste of the coffee) and sugar for me. At any rate, I would get home from work and my mom would always know I was cranked up on caffeine because I was BOUNCING (literally) off the walls.

As I have grown up, I've realized the effect that caffeine has on me and try to be a more responsible 'caffeine consumer'. (Though I HIGHLY enjoy Iced Coffee from Dunkin' Donuts.) In fact, I rarely even drink caffeine anymore, and if I do, it's in the morning so I have the whole day to get that 'caffeine-racing-through-my-veins' feeling to wear off.

Well, sadly, being the moron that I am, I grabbed a Diet Coke after a trip to the Education Store for classroom 7:30pm! Uh, HELLO!?!?!? I am WIDE awake. Dumb, I tell you, sometimes I do just plain dumb things.....
