sick

Hrm. Coffee machines... of doom?!

Here at work, we have coffee machines that dispense mixtures of various brown beverages. Among these brown options is hot chocolate, of which I occasionally partake. I am beginning to suspect, though, that sometimes the machine doesn't clean out the previously prepared beverage properly. Because, I am starting to think that hot chooclate I had earlier today has caffeine in it. I certainly had a jolt of energy when I drank it, but at the time I just thought I was noticing the sugar more than usual. My anxiety levels have been through the roof since then, however, and I'm typing faster than I usually can, which suggests to me, along with the splitting headache, that I've inadvertently consumed caffeine.

Not that I don't have plenty of things to get stressed about on my own, but I was feeling fine this morning...
