My Addiction

I have an addiction. There. I've said it. They say admitting it is the first step. Unfortunately no one has ever bothered to share the remaining steps with me.

The building next to mine (as much as I pay for parking, I should own it) is the campus union. The union is home to a coffee shop. I can't get excited about the plain flavored stuff brewed and dumped in a pot. Nope, I need, lattes and frappes with lots of espresso and syrup!

When I need that warm fuzzy feeling it's a Turtle Latte. When I need to chill out it's a Mint Chocolate Frappe (tastes just like a chilled thin mint cookie!). Did I mention this place is right next door?!

I swear they can tell by the look on my face exactly what I want to order. It's pure bliss, sipping one of their caffeine concoctions!! I had a Turtle Latte this morning, can you tell?

PROBLEM:
My office is moving across campus in a couple of weeks. I ran it on the Gmaps Pedometer and it's like half a mile away! I could ride the campus shuttle, but they stole the drivers right out of the nursing home courtyard -- It takes forever!! I suppose I could re-route my commute to the office to include a Starbucks drive thru. That means I would have to leave earlier. Hmmm, 10 minutes of additional zzzz's or a lovely specialty coffee drink? There you have it! I'm officially between a rock and a hard place!
I have pretty good veins, maybe I could set up a caffeine drip via IV in my new office! I'm gonna run to the store and buy some oranges to practice on ...

Oooh that's a toughie. I think like the song said, you'll need to like to move it move it. I so need to meet these nursing home drivers, girl, they sound like a hoot to me!

A.B. - you need to tip the old folgie's and have them bring the coffee to you!
