In general, I follow the Honesty is the Best Policy sort of lifestyle.
In that vein, I confess that every day is a need coffee and didn’t get enough sleep sort of day. I mean, I work. I write. I have kids and other people that I spend time with. If I stop drinking coffee, the precarious balancing act that is my people side would collapse.
Although, I must admit (honesty being the policy and all) I am in that stage where I don’t worry about the kids dying in their sleep and just before the stage where I worry about them sneaking out and crashing cars. There are occasions when I get enough sleep. There is still coffee on those occasions.
Grind on, my coffee loving friends.
