OK, here's the dilemma...
I'm a day shift guy for the last three years. Until shift change when I can go back to afternoons (my favorite shift), I've got this problem, see.
Free agency put me back out there, occasionally hitting a party, the infrequent bar appearance, a late night out on a date, etc. So tonight one of the guys on my team, well, his sister-in-law is throwing this big bash at a kick ass hall, replete with full bar, a catered in dinner and live band. Sounds great, right?
My trouble is, since I typically get up about 0540 for work each morning, it's like Weekend at Bernie's
on a Saturday night when I go out. I'm like the dead guy they have to prop in the corner because by about 10 o'clock I'm a veritable goner.
So what do I do? I'm not into mixers much anymore. If I were, I'd just drink Captain and Coke and stay awake that way. Nope, I'm pretty much a domestic bottle guy.
Think I should mix in a Red Bull halfway through the evening?
Pop some NoDoz? (ick- makes my stomach hurt)
Need help. Party starts in about 45 mins...
