healthy

This morning I woke up early and headed into work early, in the hopes that perhaps all this earliness will also coincide with leaving early tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.

I was rather bleary-eyed as I boarded the elevator this morning, and just when the doors were almost closed, a hand shot through and caused them to open again. A guy bounded in, gleaming smiles at me and the two other people on the elevator. He was carrying a binder in his arms and a bag over his shoulder, and I grumpily looked at him, wondering how he was looking so cheery at 7:45am.

He turned around to face the doors as we climbed to his floor and I looked down at his binder, and there, nestled on top of his papers, was his breakfast.

A Red Bull.

And a package of sugar coated donuts.




Now I know.

Red Bull + Donuts = Crazy delicious.

(With apologies to Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell.)

Huh. Maybe I should get me some Red Bull then, because this coffee stuff ain't cuttin' it.

Maribeth said...

Forget the red bull. I'll take the donuts!

Jess said...

Do you know that I've never once tasted Red Bull? I have enough addictions, thank you very much.

Ugh. Red Bull is disgusting. But I hear it does the trick. The donuts, however, those donuts are dangerous. I can eat a whole box in one sitting.

Holy Cow. Let me know if the building started shaking from the epilectic-like seizures he surely must have experienced sometime later in the day.

YIKES.

Those damned health nuts.

I had leftover Chinese food and a Fresca. Somehow I was a little short on my sugar/caffeine intake today! Although just about as healthy at the RB/donut combo.

Yankee T said...

Yikes.

Nancy said...

Hey -- what's wrong with that? That's what I had for breakfast today!

Kidding, of course. Actually I ate a handful of Laffy Taffy and a diet cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper.

jak said...

Breakfast of champions I suppose.

you know what? I'm so caffine resistist(sp?) because of my intake, that a Red Bull doesn't even give me a little caffine high-none-nada-bad huh?

When Steve was working 14 - 16 hour days I bought the redbull for him and sent it with him to work daily. He needed the pick me up in the late afternoon. Thank heavens we don't need to do that any more.

If I ate that I would
1. Blow up like a puffer fish
2. Fall asleep in a diabetic coma
3. run screaming through my office unleashing demons

I hate it when other people can eat the fun food, and I can't
