Mornin' cup o' joe/ the 100th post

I literally didn't have the energy to move when I got to the office this morning. Absolutely a result of the fact I hadn't had coffee before getting to work-- the resulting headache, proof of that.

Which is really great that the withdrawal symptoms have kicked in because it's only been this summer that I've reverted to my dependency on the morning cup o' joe. I had weeded myself off of coffee almost two years ago-- slowly picking it back up during my fall semester, only to discover that the caffeine causes my hands to shake.

But I'm used to the trembles now. That, and they've gotten a tiny bit better.

And so I'm sitting at my desk, gripping my cup of coffee with such might-- as if G-d forbid there's a chance it’ll slip away while I'm not looking-- stopping every five seconds to down the liquid goodness. Except the urgency at which I'm slurping my coffee sends me off on a coughing fit as it slides down the wrong way-- my co-workers feigning casual oblivion.

Right. We all sit next to each other. And you know, I had turned beetroot red by this point so, if for some reason they'd all gone deaf, there's no way they'd miss the blazing color that shaded my face.

But it's all good now. The caffeine's kicked in its magic-- the coughing has settled down. And now it's time I get back to work.
