Sleep…I bid you a fond adieu

What keeps me going today: Royal Cup Coffee
What moves my feet today: The fact that my shoes are slick on the bottom
I could do without: Peak seasons

Welcome back, students.

That what everyone is saying around here. All the know-it-all, rebellious Freshman are getting their first taste of debt all while they are smacking their gum at you. It is one person right after the other.

It began yesterday…Thursday. It was move-in day for the incoming freshman. Parents hovered over their kids for the last time while they, the kids, ignored the loan counseling like Bueller and the teacher played by Ben Stein. I even tried to throw some jokes and word slips in just to see if they were listening…they weren’t.

I’m sure it would help if I was running on full steam, but my steam for the week ran out about mid-day Thursday. No coffee is really working. No sugar or sweets could help. There is only one solution for the fever I have…and it isn’t more COWBELL.


In time I will find my rest. In time I will be at peace again. In time I will make friends with my pillow and have a great relationship with it. But until then…I will nearly run into vehicles in front of me on the road because I have fallen asleep while I’m driving. I’ll make mistakes on orders. I’ll cut my hands up while I am trying to cut lemons and limes for the customers at the restaurant.

Such is my life…
