NEWS TO ME cartoonist Nick McMullin knows me all too well. I have always loved my morning coffee. You have to love it if you're a morning news anchor. It's the best way to instantly become a morning person. That's a requirement for the job! Perky and happy. That's me.
Now that I've become a mom, coffee is not just an early morning joy or a "pick me up" - it's a necessity. My coffee intake has increased substantially - due to lack of sleep and pure delirium. Something needs to get me through the morning, and my coffee is a lifesaver. Doug is always kindly concerned about my appearance and lack of energy, until I guzzle down some good strong java.
This cartoon may be a wee bit of an exaggeration though. 72 OUNCES of anything would kill a person! Sadly, it's not that far off from the truth though. Hopefully, I won't keel over in the next few months on air. That would be bad. Very bad.
The best news is it's FRIDAY, and tomorrow I get to sleep in until at least 5 a.m. The baby likes to rise and shine early! He probably gets that from me.
Have a great weekend everyone!
