Late to bed, early to rise...
Jan 14, 2010
I had a speaking engagement this morning. That would have been no problem except that I had stayed up way too late the last couple of nights. (No, it wasn’t because I was goofing off...quite the opposite in fact...I was working on deadlines). I don’t mind getting up early but the event started at 7:00AM which means I had to be up by 5:30 in order to walk the dog before I left. Let’s just say that I am thankful that nature has provided us with that wonderful stimulant known as caffeine. I take mine in the form of coffee. But even before this first sip, which I didn’t take until I was at the event, I had to at least pretend to be awake, which I certainly was not, well, at least not entirely anyway. I guess I shouldn’t complain too much. I spoke with my buddy up in Oregon and he had to be at 3:30AM. That made me feel a little better. Of course he didn’t have to entertain a room full of people so early in the day. Still, seeing all of those smiling faces and hearing all the laughter has an energizing effect on me. It’s too bad that Starbucks can’t figure out a way to make laughter into an eye-opening morning beverage. Just imagine if they could...then people would actually be all smiles even after paying four bucks for a cup of coffee.
