Caffeinated Rock Star

Steaming coffee mugClick, click, and click. She scrolled down, drumming her non-mousing hand, as pictures froze and popped at slower than a snail’s pace. Definitely not rocket science, but she had places to go, things to do, people to be. Really, she had to dust her shelves, vacuum her carpet, wash summer dust from her picture window… 

And she’d had the coffee—too much—so she HAD to do the things. Her neck clenched.

Before all, she had to change that doofy Facebook profile pic. And the damn thing wouldn’t load.

Finally done. She’d feel like a rock star, except duh!

    Sounds like the coffee talking.

    Coffee: Now obsessively fold all the HyVee plastic shopping bags into neat little squares…and after you are done, go back to HyVee and get a hundred more to fold.

    My saner self: That’s nuts.

    Coffee: You need more coffee.
