I rarely ever drink caffeine. In my opinion its a powerful psychotropic drug that is very similar to cocaine. Yes, I just ruined my chances at public office by admitting that I tried coke (a few times in college… not my cup of tea though). Anyways caffeine is a drug that too many businesspeople I know can’t function without a cup of every morning. I prefer to control my own mental states thank you very much. Alcohol is my vice of choice.
When I do have a cup of coffee or even tea sometimes, I can definitely feel a strong buzz- I get jittery and very talkative. It can be fun.
One night I was out at a bar with some of my buddies and one of them ordered each of us a touchdown (vodka dropped into red bull then chugged). Then he ordered each of us another. And another.
For someone who never drinks coffee, this gave me quite a jolt. I was feeling a little spacey.
We went onto the dance floor and were dancing with a group of girls we knew when I spotted Her.
She was the hottest girl in the bar and she was dancing with her cute little friend. I stared.
I walked over and opened my mouth to talk to her… ordinarily I’m pretty charming and able to carry on a conversation well, but what popped out was, “What is the difference between love and obsession?”
She looked at me funny, then surprisingly answered very earnestly. Only I couldn’t hear hear her over the Boom Boom Boom of the music, so I just faked it and nodded. Eventually she trailed off and I just stared. She bailed.
I went outside and sat on a bench and stared at the sky till my friends were ready to go.
