The thing I forgot about coffee? It keeps me awake. I mean, really
awake. Being coffee-free for weeks only enhanced that little side effect. I was buzzing on a caffeine high until 4 a.m. I slept fitfully, only to be awakened numerous times by 1) loud, barking dog, 2) loud neighbor, 3) loud husband, 4) loud husband setting off loud truck alarm as he left for work at 7:45 a.m., 5) loud husband calling house phone to apologize for setting off loud truck alarm, 6) loud, barking dog, 7) quieter husband coming home from work at 9:30 a.m. (he’s in the Navy, it makes sense). All told, I probably got about five hours of sleep, three of those uninterrupted.
You know what? I still love coffee.
You know what else? I won’t be drinking coffee tonight.
