To Nap or to Coffee?

Today I did something for the first time ever.

I had a rough night of sleep last night. I fell asleep around 11:30, woke up to Biddy (cat) drooling for food at 4:00, and ended up unable to fall back to sleep for the next hour or so. My day then started at 7:00.

Fortunately I didn’t have a headache, but I was pretty tired in the afternoon, and a nap was a tempting prospect despite the amount of work I had today. I could start to feel my brain becoming more and more sluggish.

Then I remembered that due to an upcoming game day I’m hosting, I have iced coffee in my fridge. I’m not a coffee drinker at all, and while I’ve had it a few times (my favorite being Thai iced coffee), I can’t remember ever drinking coffee strictly for the caffeine.

That all changed today. No nap for me–I had a small glass of coffee instead:

I’m ALIVE!!!

It certainly did the trick, and I was mostly productive for the rest of the day.

Are you a coffee drinker? Have you ever used it to wake up your brain?
