So I had my Monday coffee at Santa Cruz’s Coffeetopia. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but Monday morning has become my bit ‘o down time after the drive over the hill and prior to heading up the (much smaller) hill to teach at UCSC. Today I added a toasted bagel and cream cheese to the mix since I didn’t allow myself time for breakfast at home.

After a nice relaxing time at the coffee shop I arrived on campus an hour early, so I could get a bit of practice in. Guess what?! I had the same near blackout experience that I had yesterday.

Light bulb moment: this old lady can’t handle caffeine all that well anymore.

So I have come to the (duh!) conclusion that it’s decaf for me from here on out. I can’t handle this blacking out thing. It’s not very fun. I used to drink coffee even at all hours of the night, and I’d still sleep soundly. Not so any more. But I didn’t realize that my not having coffee much any more would cause this sort of reaction when I did decide to have a cuppa joe.

Oh well. It’s not like I’m giving up chocolate!
