Lucky Klutz

Hello World!  Well, remember la few days ago when I awoke and said I was ready to embrace the new day?  It was a good thing I was filled with peace and calm because I had a bit of a rough start.

One of the joys about working again is a paycheck.  I LOVE Starbucks, and there is one close to me.  So each morning I go there and get a cup of coffee to enjoy.  And I do so enjoy it.  Especially that first sip of the day.  Your mouth is untainted by any other beverage or food, the coffee is warm and rich.  It smells delightful and has a taste to match.

Anyway, I got my cup of coffee and took it to the car and placed it in my cup holder.  Somehow my key chain tucked itself under the lip of the cover on the coffee, lifted the entire cup and deposited it on the floor of the truck between my feet – spilling the entire contents on the floor (yet not getting a drop on me)!  Sigh.

Back into the shop I take my sorry self – and get in the long line to await my second cup of coffee.  And the lady spots me – inquires why I’m back.  After hearing my tale of woe – tells me to go on over to the pickup station and receive my replacement beverage FREE!  I couldn’t believe it.  No charge for being a klutz!

Somedays things just cannot go wrong no matter what happens!

Cure for insomnia?

Well, the dr has decided to change my blood pressure meds.  I started on the new one last Wednesday and guess what.  One of the side effects is insomnia.  Now I’ve never suffered from insomnia before.  Yes, I’ve gone a night or two when I was working through issues and didn’t sleep well.  But insomnia?  Not me.  Well, between Wed night and Monday morning I don’t think I even got a total of 8 hours of sleep.  Yesterday was so hard at work – I just wasn’t functional.  The brain was in a total fog.

Last night I went to Starbucks and ordered my usual (triple shot cappuccino, dry).  The barista asked if I’d ever had a macchiato and when I answered no he fixed me one “one the house”.  He said he thought I’d like it as much as the cappuccino since I always ordered it “dry” and that it’d be cheaper.  So I enjoyed my beverages and decided he was right.  I went back in to make sure I’d be able to order what he fixed me.  He’d fixed me a triple shot macchiato.

So, last night before bed I consumed SIX shots of espresso (and not de-caff either)!!  Guess what.  I slept like a baby and awoke refreshed this morning.

Go figure.
