A time you were sleepy but had to stay awake

A time you were sleepy but had to stay awake
You should speak about:
-When did it happen?
-Why you were sleepy?
-Why you had to stay awake?
-And how you stayed awake?

Sample Answer:

Well, there are some times when we need to stay awake. I believe such a situation would have faced by everyone at least once in life. I vividly remember how I kept myself awake even when I was exhausted and sleepy. 

It was a Sunday afternoon of July 2019 when I was feeling lazy. Usually, it happens with me after a heavy meal. And on that Sunday I had 4-5 Allu Parantha with white butter. After having a great meal, all I wanted to sleep. Sonia is a perfect cook. I want to tell she is my wife. 

However, I didn’t fulfil my dream of sleeping peacefully that day due to urgent work. I received a call from one of my clients whose website was not working. I came out of my bed and began my work. My Sunday was already spoiled. I usually don’t work at weekends, but the work was imperative.

A strong coffee made by my wife did the magic. A cup of coffee made me active. It took me almost 3 hours to troubleshoot the issue on his website. After fixing the bug, I was free to enjoy my holiday. I was not sleepy at all after 3 hours. So, I decided to take Sonia for a movie. We watched a Hollywood movie and enjoyed a perfectly crisped pizza at Pizza Hut that evening.

Thank you!
