The other morning I decided tit would be nice to have a warm coffee drink for breakfast. The temperature had swung from 50’s back to the 30’s with rain, rain, and freezing rain. I needed a warm up, something to keep me going in the dreary spring. On my way to work I stop at Starbucks, the only place open at 5 am besides McDs, and ordered a tall cappuccino and a veggie breakfast sandwich. I had to eat something with the coffee!
Later at work and about half a cappuccino down, I was bouncing around in my chair. Caffeine!! Normally I have coffee drinks in the afternoon to help get me through the rest of the day. I started to remember why I don’t have caffeine in the morning. By 8:30 am, two and a half hours at work, I’d completed all the work I had for the day and started getting bored with siting at my desk. I decided to get up from my desk and walk over to the area where my other co-workers sit and talked to them. My team lead know right away that I must have had coffee this morning because I was too happy for being at work. That made me realize its great to work with people who get to know you. OK, back on the story, I spent the entire work day ready to complete any new work that came my way. Just sitting at my desk for 8 hours with way too much caffeine.
So lesson learned, no caffeine for me before work. I’ll save all my cappuccino and latte dreams for the weekend.
