So I’m driving into work and I need to buy a case of water. I go to rite aid and next door (store) over is Dunkin Doughnuts. I was in the mood for a cream cheese sesame seed bagel so I went in. I order the combo and it comes with a coffee. I’m not a coffee drinker but what the hell, today is Friday and let me switch it up. So I drive to work eat my bagel and one glazed doughnut and then get to the coffee. I flip open the sophisticated top and tilt the coffee up and what do you know, the motherfucker is 1200 degrees. It burns the shit out of my tongue and I’m sitting there wondering how in the world do people drink this so hot. Nevertheless, I finish off the coffee with no more taste buds left. Next thing I know the caffeine starts kicking and I have some pep to my step. I start buzzing around the office, answering phones calls, cleaning up anything out of place OCD style, and bouncing off the walls. Wow this is great, I can take on any task, even 3 or 4 all at the same time and nothing can slow me down. That is until the caffeine wears off. I’m sure everyday coffee drinkers just pour another cup and continue on, but being a once in a blue moon drinker, that was it. Now I’m sitting at my desk lethargic and wondering when the day is going to end. I’m not one to get addicted to things. I tend to stay away from anything addictive because it’s usually bad for you. I know it’s fun to do bad things but it most likely won’t end well. I understand how people can’t get through their day without their morning coffee. I do know though that it is not for me. Yes it seems fun and you feel really productive but it would just turn into another bad habit. Once again this will be another addictive substance that I am passing like Tom Brady on. And I just wrote that last sentence and laughed out loud to myself how cheesy it was.
I have a tame weekend coming up. I need to meet a roofing contractor on Saturday morning at 830 so that buzz kills my Friday and I have a German supplier flying in on Monday so I don’t want to go in feeling like shit, so I have decided to take it easy on Saturday too. Hopefully this will be one of my more productive weekends and I can do some holiday shopping and get to the gym or play some ball.
