Drinking on the job

drinksIn keeping with my recent thoughts on vices, I have yet another confession to make: I like to drink.

But not alcohol, mind you — oh, no. Not interested. I mean flavored tea, sparkling water, diet cola, Red Bull, hot tea, coffee, espresso, lattes, fruit punch, Sprite, and . . .

I’m sure you can see where I’m doing with this!

On my desk at any given time, you’ll see a littering of cans, bottles and mugs. I’ve tried to keep this under control — honestly — but, well, I get a smidge lazy about my recycling and have a tendency not to dispose of things as fast as I should! Since we don’t have a designated recycling program at my office, I store everything until I can drag it all home in bags for curbside pick-up. And that process can take months — especially when I have something like the above snapshot on my desk daily!

I guess I should be thankful that I’m not a chronic work snacker. I purposely don’t keep any junk food within arm’s reach, choosing instead to shove a mug of tea into my grasping fingers. Any nearby crackers, chips or popcorn would be swallowed whole in a matter of seconds — and that’s why I have to keep all forms of delicious candy away from me, too! (I’m sure my incredibly good-looking dentist would approve.)

And now I’ll return to guzzling my kiwi watermelon spring water from Archer Farms, followed quickly by half a can of Red Bull. Good day to you!

  1. lol – I used to be addicted to coffee for the longest time, having about 8 cups a day: mocha, cappuccino, double espresso, latte, macchiato, you name it! Decided to stop, one day, and am now addicted to hot chocolate with either caramel or hazelnut. So unhealthy!

    At least you’re eco-friendly, and the kiwi-watermelon spring water sounds yummy. I’m personally a big fan of the kiwi-apple smoothie.

    Good day 🙂


  2. Hi, Megan! I was so happy to see you pop up in my comments today! I think you were one of my first commenters on the old blog and I couldn’t believe you followed me over to the new one. Thank you!

    And I love drinks too – any coffee or tea, sparking water and all those sparking drinks like Izze’s. Don’t even get me started on Jamaba Juice. I’m just glad there isn’t one near me!
