CAFFEINE: Stimulant of the central nervous system

FullSizeR

Awwww….CAFFEINE..nectar of the gods and all that. Sunday looms ahead and…while it’s normally a rest day…today will be a volunteer and mentor day. The black liquid was brewing when I woke up and I’m on cup 2 of my precious oil.

There was a time that I appreciated the morning’s more…coffee in hand and caffeine coursing through veins. I’m back to that this morning. Eyes stare out ahead at some random show (starring Ryan Gosling….nice to zone out to) as my body wakes up from bottom to top. Good morning toes…the caffeine has hit you and now I can feel you’re readiness to walk to the closet and the sink and back to the coffee pot. There you are calves and thighs! I can actually feel a tingling as caffeine and blood mingle together and come to an agreement that we can begin our day. Belly’s awake! Might need to feed it. Fingers and shoulders are emerging from their nap and the one drawback is that old ache in the right shoulder is also awakening. Last but not least….here comes the brain. Goooooooood morning gray matter. You ready to rock and roll? You ready to mentor? You ready to work with your youth and hopefully say something that will impart wisdom and change her path this week? You ready to dance and sweat and recall choreography? You ready to study?

Oh dear…..I’ve lost the brain……….Cup 3 and another dose of caffeine on it’s way.

(For perkier mornings…I highly recommend the deliciousness of Cafe Bustelo. If the caffeine doesn’t wake you up…the brightly colored can will. )
