Sweet Nectar of the Gods

((SCENE)) Today was my boss’s birthday. It was also the day that we decided to head into the office at 0600 to finish next year’s sales plan.

In need of a gift and still damn tired, I gave in to the months of temptation. My boss has said for months that his energy drink was the greatest thing since sliced bread. I had never tried it. I stopped in at the convenience store and bought seven energy drinks – 6 as a gift (wrapped in a generic plastic bag — nice!) and one for me. I popped that baby open and drove to work.

((Background)) I am normally a little tornado. I suspect that people see me as the friendly version of the Tasmanian Devil from Bugs Bunny – just wooshing into the room and creating a wake like a speedboat. I have a lot of energy. I’m naturally excited. It tends to be infectious when people are around me.

Now that we’ve painted the picture, I need to tell you that the energy drink is truly the nectar of the gods. I went the whole day at my routine pace (1000mph) and was still just pinging at the end of the day. I was never jittery – never frantic – just ready for anything that came my way with enough spunk to tackle it with a big smile. It really did give me the wings to tackle any bull that came my way.

So, if you are considering trying an energy drink, I want to tell you that I’m sold. Here’s my suggestion:

  1. I’m sure I’m due some comment akin to “mess with the bull & you get the horns” or something clever. This isn’t just for her, I really did drink the shit out of that Hansen’s and it was great!

    You gotta admit – she did kinda call me out with the donuts & margarita bashing. Besides, she won’t read this or even notice the “Now Playing”. 🙂

  2. I’m running away, now. Sorry, C. I try to control him, but it’s impossible when he’s hopped up on energy drinks. 😉

  3. It’s hard to say. Candy is good. I’ve always liked candy. Try it and let me know. I think it’s great. No bull! 🙂

  4. You’re just trying to get me back because of my IceCream/Donut/Margaritaville statement. I think I’ll go purchase some pillows from the Marriott!

  5. I would say its not that bad. I think i try every single energy drink that comes out. Some i like some i don’t. My first energy drink was a Red Bull, i was in New Zealand. I had never even heard of an “energy drink” back then. I’ve been hooked on the stuff ever since. I also like Bawls and coffe style energy drinks. But I get the bull daily 🙂

  6. While this is an incredibly true story, I can’t begin to tell you how much laughing has been going on over here at Chez Kev. 😉

    As far as the pillows go – some people do have a personal preference, but only the ones that have never slept on the goose down Heavenly pillows.
