Is It the Coffee?

I drank more than five cups of instant coffee today. Tough meetings and those number-crunching jobs made me thirst for these caffeine-powered drinks. It made me stay awake even at this 3:50 AM.

I am not on night shift. I was never on a night shift. There is no night shift in my present job. But you know what accountants do on the first week of every month -- closing of books, monthly reports and all that. We may go home past midnight but still have to report to work at 8am. "What a life!" if you might complain.

But I'm used to it, working on this same situation when I started out at PWC at age 20. 14 years later and many steps up in the corporate ladder, it is still the same.

It is still the same 3-in-1 coffee that filled my cup, satisfied my lips, and kept me awake. Maybe I should try tea next time.

Nah. Tea won't do it! Hahahaha! :D
Nothing beats a good cup of coffee. I am 21 years old and trying very HARD to have just 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day. Nothing more. God bless my young heart. Hahahaha! :D

I drank such voluminous amount of coffee that I actually had develop some form of stone problem in my urinal system. Now, I got to be without it for a long, long time, or maybe, from now on. Tsk, tsk...

I love 3-in-1 coffee but had to refrain drinking it since June when my stomach ulcer comes back...
Even softdrinks, I'm avoiding it until this time...
