Growing up, I used to be one of those morning people who woke up without an alarm clock, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to be gosh darn productive.

Now I kind of hate those people. Sure, I’m still technically a morning person. I do my best work before 10 AM and a movie screening after 8 PM is out of the question, but it takes a bit of extra fuel to get me up and going now.

And two separate alarm clocks.

And coffee. Always, coffee.

Not enough people acknowledge that regularly or go out of their way to avoid the truth of the matter entirely.

Not that I would ever tell someone to quit drinking it entirely — though if your doctor says you should for individual medical reasons, you should — but, you know, moderation is a good habit to be in.

One cup of really good quality coffee is a treat. Four cups of burnt java just for the hit of caffeine is perhaps something to worry about.
