Explanation please

Tell me, how can it be that when a person (OK - me) drinks a caffeinated pop in the afternoon will still be up at almost midnight? (and just for the record, I can count on one hand the number of times I actually drink caffeinated pop in a year - that's either the reason, or the cause).

Yet, if I drink one to deal with a migraine I can wander out of the bedroom, slug the can of pop and 2 Tylenol, go back to bed for hours, wake up, and still go back to bed a couple hours later?

I just think it's weird. Does the caffeine get sucked into the migraine black hole? Just don't get it here!

Does the caffeine know why you are taking it and head to the right location? Just kidding....

On a side note though, one of our kids was being given different prescription meds to try last year to find the one that would work for her. She wasn't too keen on trying the new pills since the last ones did nothing anyway. My husband looked at the pill and said, "But look, these new ones have directions printed on them, they'll know where to go and what to do, the others didn't." (The new ones just had some numbers stamped on while the old ones had nothing, but our dd got a kick out that explanation! And while she clearly didn't believe him, she took those new pills with a smile on her face.)

And....spell check tells me that while decaffeinated is a word, caffeinated is not. But I like it anyway.

Hmmm.... you sound like a real pro at slugging back the tylenol and Mello Yellow. Cute post.

If you put in my real name, according to spell check I am not a word either. It's best suggestion is "larvae." I think that I should be in therapy for this.
