Red Bull Fuels Summer Days
Along about 2 PM, I'm usually ready for another burst of caffeine induced attention-to-task. With the temperatures in the afternoon significantly higher than those in the morning when a cup of hot Joe works well, I typically turn to the iced Americano (heavy on the ice) in summer.
But now? Cast your eyes above to view my latest discovery, sugar free of course. This little pick-me-up has been around for years but not in my repertoire. Until now.. Gotta love this icy cold aluminum can of rocket fuel, especially savored through a straw.
When my colleagues see me enjoying one of these treats they shake their heads knowingly. But, as I was before them, they are reluctant to go there. Why? Too symbolic of great need? Not caffeine driven? Wary of the taurine and other additives in Red Bull? I don't ask. I just drink, smile, and wait for the renewed energy to kick in.
Highly recommended if you like this kind of stuff.
