Need to Stay Awake

I always eat a piece of chocolate
Right before I go to class
Not a lot, mind you
Just a meager amount
Enough to make sure
I don’t slumber during class
Because teacher said that
If I fall asleep one more time
I’d be out on my ass

      It does. But I can drink a cup of caffeinated coffee after dinner and I can sleep like a baby.

    I’d be likely to nod off if I ate chocolate before something boring like a long-winded lesson. But then I nod off if I don’t eat chocolate. It’s one of those things they never tell you about getting ‘old’ I guess. O_o Bastards…. 😉

    Is this written from personal experience, did you fall asleep in class often? I know chocolate had caffeine in it, but I have never noticed enough to keep me awake.

      No, not from personal experience…just fiction built around the prompt words. But I think sugary candy, including chocolate, can produce a “sugar high” that can keep some people awake.
