Careful about that drink, ma'am!

I just did something funny today.

I had to get up really soon (well, before five in the morning sure is soon for me) to arrive to my first class in time and oh my, I really hate that class. No idea why they stuck such boring subjects so soon in the morning, when half of the students is still half asleep!

Anyway, after the hour-and-a-half long lecture I had about four hours of nothing before my next class, so I decided to do some schoolwork in the university computer room. Almost all the computers were still free, as most people were either at lectures or still at home. And I was, after about hour, ready to fall asleep on my keyboard (which is something what happens to some of my fellow students. It really is funny to watch them wake up with keyboards pressed into their faces).

First, I tried to chase the sleepiness away by buying myself a bottle of soda which has quite some caffeine in it and do some walking around the building.

If anything, the level of sleepiness was the same, so after another hour, when I finished the bottle, I decided to buy myself a can of energy drink.

The energy drinks they sell in the automats are 0,5 l ones. It's called "Semtex", "Burn" or "Monster", depending on the automat. I really wanted to start drinking the drink but then I realized that there is no chance of me drinking the whole can in one try, and there is also only minimal chance I would be allowed to keep the opened and mostly full open can on my work desk. And I though'well, why not to pour it over into that empty bottle you got from the soda?'

It was easier to say than do, to tell the truth. I can be extremely clumsy, especially when I try not to be, so I took the empty bottle and the can to the nearest restroom and poured it over while standing over the sink there.

I wondered why the people are giving me funny looks, when I left the restroom with the energy drink safely poured over into the bottle. And then it hit me - the drink had very intensive dark yellow colour. I just exited the restroom. It looked like I peed in the bottle and then took it with me.

It was priceless to open the bottle, right in front of some disgusted looking young lady who saw me exit the restroom and take a nip in front of her.

I know.

I'm horrible - but the look on her face was just that priceless!

Do you drink energy drinks?
