Some of you might remember this, where I documented life without caffeine as mom to a newborn.
That ended tonight, while on my way to a work meeting, when I woke up on the freeway. Yes.
I pulled off the road, into the first gas station I could find, grabbed the “small” size (programming note: 20 ounces is small?) and drank 8 ounces of Diet Coke. I decided that it’s no good avoiding caffeine completely if the alternative is killing myself. You know. It’s the little things you do for your kids, like staying alive.
Hold on, Anonymous Internet Commenter! Yes, of course the solution is to get more sleep. Know what would be an even better solution? Paid maternity leave like every other industrialized country in the world.
In fact, I think this is Answer the Anonymous Internet Commenter Week at The Jet Set. .
Yes, Anonymous Internet Commenter, 8 ounces of Diet Coke. I'm a lightweight. People named Allison are always poking fun at my extreme sensitivity to caffeine, and every other ingestible substance.
I'm also aware, Anonymous Internet Commenter, that lots of people die, often tragically, as a result of drowsy driving. Let me know when my driver will arrive.
I think we can both agree, Anonymous Internet Commenter, that DVRing Millionaire Matchmaker was a low point in my nursing viewing habits. I apologize on behalf of myself, Comcast, BravoTV, the institution of marriage, both traditional and otherwise, and my mother.
