You are driving to work, trying to keep your eyes open from the long night of grading that you put behind you, and attempting to not think about the long night of grading you have ahead of you, when suddenly, a disturbing thought hits you–it’s only Tuesday.
There is only one solution to this problem: caffeine.
If you love the taste of coffee, you can hit your closest Peet’s Coffee; if you don’t like the taste of coffee, but love the effect, you will most likely stumble upon at least three ubiquitous Starbucks on your way. There, the handy-dandy, always happy baristas (except for this guy) can work their magic in order to concoct frosty masterpieces for you (light caramel frappuccino, anyone?).
Finally, you may opt for a soda instead: the LARGEST sodas are at your local gas station (I saw one today at the AMPM that was the size of my head. Literally…I’m not a large person). McDonalds sells all of their sodas for $1 (even the large), and the largest large outside of the gas station can be found at Jack in the Box.
P.S. For something to look forward to, read The New York Times article below.
