I'm dragging today. Okay, so I was dragging yesterday too, but for
whatever reason, today, even the little things seem monumental. Take
this Mountain Dew bottle for instance. I figured that a little bit of
caffeine might just be helpful for me this morning, despite the fact
that I typically avoid it because we seem to have a love-hate
relationship. But, I had an offer, so wasn't going to turn it down. But,
getting the cap off the bottle has been proving to be a task as
troublesome as scrubbing a tile floor with a toothbrush. Oh wait, that'd
be more tedious, not troublesome, but anyway, I'm sure you get the
picture. And, it's not just the first time either. Even just putting it
back on and removing it again seems like trying to move a mountain from
one continent to another. So, what's this bottle trying to tell me?
Should I not be drinking the Mountain dew, (probably), are they just
making bottles more difficult to open, (unlikely), or am I just slowly
losing my mind, (probably most accurate)? In any case, yesterday I had
caffeine too, and it was much more effective. Today I'm getting the
typical reaction which makes me avoid the stuff in the first place.
Rather than waking me up, it gives me the jitters. So, here I am, in
front of my computer, a series of queries to run, two docket lists in my
inbox waiting to be scheduled, and a set of hands that seem to have
developed minds of their own. The left one seems to have developed a
permanent wrist cramp, and they're both just sort of doing random
things. I seriously need to figure out an alternative to this. When the
cure becomes worse than the original problem, something's got to change.

<SMILE!> But now, time to see if I can make myself command the rest of
me so that I can start getting through everything I've got to do today.
