Be Willing to be Boring

What with the yerba mate I drank, the Icee I drank at the movies ("white cherry," which I'm pretty sure is not a real thing, in the sense that there is no corresponding cherry grown in the world that is absent all pigmentation), and the jasmine tea I drank at dinner, I believe I had more caffeine (and all the concomitant xanthines) yesterday than I've had in ages.

At the birthday party of our downstairs neighbor Ellen last night, I was feeling like I was really "on," a conversational dynamo, listening appropriately, winging zingers out into the fray with aplomb, making jokes and laughing at other's wit. I felt good, enjoying the company of people and being enjoyed in return.

This morning, I have a little bit of a headache, and my skin is dried out and scaly, and I can't seem to drink enough water.
