Nipped By the Parenthetical Remark

Disturbingly close to 24 hours ago I was writing an email to someone and parenthetically remarked that my coffee was made and I was ready to go. I added that I am one of those lucky few who can down a pot one day, then do without any at all the next and in neither case notice any physical effect. Just like the taste sometimes, is all.

Apparently, that isn't quite the case. Yesterday, after quaffing a 10-cup pot, I decided another six would go down smooth. And, er, for some reason, sleep has not gone down at all. After tossing and turning for something like 6 hours, I put two and two together and came up with "caffeine overdose" and so hauled myself from my bed.

I know, a rather dull return after neglecting you for so long, Gentle Readers. Please find below a cute photo I came across in my archives that will, I hope, assuage your collective wrath.

Summer 2002, that was. Fun times.
