Energy

I am not a good long-distance driver.  The road hypnotizes me, puts me to sleep... during the day when the sun is shining brightly.  But, I will do (almost) anything for my kids, so I made this crazy trip.   It was over 1300 miles, round trip, in 54 hours.  Whew!  Saw lots of these on my drive:

Well, as I said, I don't do well driving during the daytime with the sun beating down on me, and I was in the car alone for the entire trip minus 3 1/2 hours that my daughter was with me, so my husband urged me to drink a five hour energy on the way home. I had gotten relatively little sleep the night before the last leg of my journey, and I felt like I was falling asleep.  My eyes were closing in spite of the things I was doing to keep myself awake.

I have never before in my life had so much as a drop of energy drink in my life, but I took his advice because I had another six hours to go.  It. Tastes. AWFUL!!!!!  I don't know what urine tastes like, but the 5 Hour Energy tastes like I imagine urine would taste with some artificial flavoring added.  I guess it helped since I stayed awake without having to stop for the night, but I sincerely hope I never have to drink it again!

LOL! I've never had a 5 hour energy before, but I certainly don't want to start now!
