This morning I suddenly found myself in line at Starbucks. And while I was thinking, “Wait, I have class! I don’t have time to stand here,” my feet propelled me to the counter where the barista said, “What can I get for you?”

And I swear I tried to say “How long have I been standing in line and what am I doing here?” But instead it came out as: “I’ll have an iced grande caramel macchiato” and my brain went “What?!” and my mouth said “Please.”

It was in that moment that I knew:

“Hi. My name is Emily and I’ve just become addicted to caffeine.”
