Ciao, amici. This isn’t my usual post (or type of post), but I have a crippling amount of work to do, so I’m procrastinating.
I wouldn’t be if I wasn’t so tired. But I’m caffeine deprived.
See, when I was at the store on Sunday, I found chocolate-covered coffee beans. They’re my favorite guilty pleasure because they combine two of my very favorite things. And the store almost never has them. I bought a bag.
I was going to buy a few bags, but I convinced myself to be good.
The plan was to have just one or two in the afternoon. A little pick-me-up to get me through the afternoon. I don’t sleep well, so I benefit greatly from a caffeine jolt later in the day.
Imagine my surprise when I went to get the bag and it was gone. I don’t mean opened and many were taken out. I mean GONE.
So I asked my son if he had them. He confessed to eating them all.
It’s Tuesday. It hasn’t been 48 hours since they were in the house. And he ate the whole bag? No wonder he didn’t sleep well last night.
Here’s the kicker… He works at a chocolate shop. Where they sell chocolate-covered coffee beans. He can eat them anytime he wants. FOR FREE.
He offered to bring me some, but I told him not to. I don’t need them. That’s why I never ask him to bring any home. (I’m convinced I don’t have a problem, and there’s my proof.) But when the store had them, I couldn’t resist.
Don’t get me wrong, I could certainly use some caffeine right about now. But I don’t NEED them. (Or so I’m telling myself.)
What’s the point of this post, then, you ask? Like I said, I’m procrastinating because I have so much to do, I can’t think straight. And I don’t have any caffeine to get me moving.
So, what about you? Do you need an afternoon pick-me-up? What’s your choice? Bonus points if you’re super busy and opting to answer me instead of working. lol
