As I write this, I am sitting at the local Starbucks trying to get some work done. You see, I was able to leave my day job early today and I had planned on a very productive evening, writing-wise. I told myself that I would go to Starbucks or The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and spend the whole night there writing. After all, they have WiFi – even though I have to pay – and what better combination than coffee, music, cigarettes, and writing?
But here I am, being bummed because it seems that the WiFi connection at BOTH Starbucks and Coffee Bean is down. It has been like this for the past 2 hours. Still, it has not stopped me from writing using Word, with the intent of publishing my posts when – and if – the WiFi goes back up.
Anyhow, back to the topic of this post – how much coffee do you need? I suppose that that question is quite vague. How much coffee do you need for what? In my mind, it is how much coffee do you need to wake up? I have been up for 16 hours and my mind is starting to become sluggish. Even my typing is becoming bad. I am on my 3rd cup of coffee – not for the day, but for the past 2 hours.
I used to think that a cup of good strong coffee could give me the jolt that I need to function normally. Now, I am seriously doubting that. Maybe a fourth cup from Starbucks would help?
