Many a time you will come to this blog and find words of praise for a beverage I call chai. Its a warm beverage of tea and milk with a dash of sugar for the sweet inclined. I now realize my praises have been reckless as I have sung the praises of chai, yet seldom do I discuss the darker side of the delectable beverage. Today I temper my love for chai with some words of advice: Do not, I repeat DO NOT drink a cup of loose leaf chai at 9:45 at night. Yes you may tell yourself that chai is not as strong as coffee and therefore will have no effect on you whatsoever. You may remind yourself of all the days you drank tea and promptly began snoring like a hibernating brown bear. However chai drinking at 9:45 at night can result in side effects such as lying in bed for 48 minutes listening to each individual rain drop as it hits your roof forcing you to go downstairs and deplete your carefully saved new episodes of Ugly Betty that you were hoping to watch as you savored each one and not in a frustrated restless state as you waited for sleep to come and then reading hideous books you're glad you borrowed from a library and didn't actually purchase, and praying deeply, most sincerely to feel just the tiniest slightest bit sleepy though sleep in any shape or form seems nowhere on the horizon resulting in this, what you have before you, frantic caffeine induced blogging of questionable literary merit. Sigh.
Sleep is a symptom of caffeine deprivation. ~Author Unknown
