What Do you Stay Awake For?


Courtesy of Caribou Coffee

Sometimes the days just seem too short and my energy too limited, to do all the stuff that makes life sweeter. But some things are worth staying awake for (binge watching VEEP and reading "one more chapter, please?!", to my daughter are among mine).

I thought it would be fun to ask some Caribou Baristas (people intimately involved with that excellent stay-alert juice, coffee) what they stay awake for?


"My children, Malachi and Eleanora."

"Seeing the Kansas Jayhawks win the NCAA Tournament (next year)!"


"Summer and traveling!"


"Dancing on the beach!"


Sleep is nice, but life is short. So what do you stay awake for?
