So, I've never been someone who sees myself as addicted to caffeine. I don't need coffee in the morning; if I stop at Starbucks it's because it sounds delicious, not because I'm tired. But, I have realized my daily Diet Coke at lunch has become a dependency. I know this because I did not have it for the past two days, and I am about to put my head down on my desk and fall asleep. Which, I believe, is frowned upon when the kids are here. (So is blogging, I'm sure, but they are all on their own laptops working on test prep, so I just have to take a lap every few minutes to check on them.)
Anyway, since I have apparently developed a dependency to caffeine, I am going to avoid it for the next month or so. :( Which will be very difficult, as there is nothing quite like a cold Diet Coke to prepare me for my fourth period class. It's like the legal equivalent of a stiff drink.
I might need to go to a meeting.
