Joan: Hi, how are you? What are you doing? What is this?
Roberto: Whoa! You’re very high-strung this morning.
Joan: Am I? I am a little wired. I’ve been up all night trying to finish an assignment for one of my classes.
Roberto: You don’t seem tired at all for having been up all night. In fact, you seem to be bouncing off the walls.
Joan: What are you trying to imply? Sorry, I didn’t mean to snap at you. I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee and energy drinks. I still have a lot of caffeine in my system.
Roberto: That’s for sure. You seem agitated from too many stimulants.
Joan: Well, I needed to stay awake, so as soon as I felt drowsy, I’d have another dose of caffeine. It gave me an instant jolt!
Roberto: But you’re done with your assignment now, right?
Roberto: And you have a few hours before your class, so why don’t you get some sleep?
Joan: Sleep? Sleep?! I don’t know the meaning of the word!
