Drink a fuckload of coffee every day for like 10 years
quit drinking coffee cold-turkey. Make it through the withdrawals, till you are getting work done without coffee, you’re coffee-free in ’93, everything is fine
Pounding green tea all day like a master, sitting there all peaceful at your desk
Unshowered and unshaved (or, as Auden would have it, “unwashed,unshat“), take the bus to work. Decide on the bus that today is a Coffee Day. Buy an egg sandwich and small coffee ($3.25 total) from the dark Bakery next to Cancun on Mission.
Drink the coffee and go batshit bonkers insane!! Rub up against your coworkers’ knees like a human kitty. Think hard and long and fond about the dollop of catsup the bakers put on your sandwich. Shiver with warmth, shiver with pleasure. Play marathonpacks’ best-of 2006 mix on your computer speakers for all of the office to hear. Tickle the interns!! Etc!!!!
