Departure from the Usual

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

I am so used to being in bed with a book by eight in the evening that a deviation from this daily routine feels like a grand shake-up. Coming home late last night from a colleague’s birthday party and waking up early this morning with only a few hours of sleep, I felt disoriented. I only had soda, but I woke up with a hangover.

After downing two huge mugs of coffee, I felt a sense of normalcy set in. A temporary departure from the usual is not bad after all. Being in the company of my colleagues and hearing their joyful banter is a welcome break from listening incessantly to my own thoughts.

i think you drank a different sort of soda - hangover inducing one...lol. kudos to coffee, i am having one right now, and it's the only thing that sets the start of any working day.
