I’m too tired and busy this week to really write substantial posts, but since it’s been a few days, I’ll give you a quick glimpse of my sleepy mind. I got five hours of sleep last night. I jerked awake when my alarm went off, still thinking I was inside the dream I was having where I was at a conference in the world’s most ghetto hotel, and I was worried about the safety of the people I was with. I didn’t know what that means–I’m never very good at interpreting dreams–but I did know that I needed caffeine fast.
My friends Betty and Melanie, and my college roommate Sarah got me hooked on coffee in college. Back then, I slept whenever I wanted to and didn’t care if I was up until 4 in the morning, so I drank coffee at all hours of the day and night. Now, I’m hooked on caffeine and will actually get headaches if I don’t get it in the mornings. I am annoyed with myself for being addicted to it, but I don’t really care enough to do something about it. Ever since I got braces (stupid things), I am not supposed to drink coffee. But I do. Nothing starts my day off better, particularly when I can go to Starbucks and get my favorite–tall nonfat white mocha with peppermint. Ahhh.
Drinks are definitely my comfort food. When I’ve had a rough day, I sit on the couch and drink Diet Cokes until I forget about it. If it came from Sonic and has a little cherry in it, all the better My sisters and I celebrate good things with trips to Starbucks. When it’s too hot for coffee, I like their passion iced tea. I’ve even got my hubby drinking it. A little.
Anybody else out there do this? Have a food or drink that never fails to lift your spirits?
