Sweet tapdancing Christ, hold my hand for this

Come on, it's overcast skies and it has been rainy for days and I'm so tired and I WANT COFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Could you hear me whining from over there?!

OK, it's time for some rational analysis.

PART A

Finish this sentence:

Coffee makes me feel...

...ALIVE ALERT HAPPY SMARTER THAN I REALLY AM FULL OF TIGER GROWLS READY TO LIFT TRUCK OFF BABY ME HULK ME HULK HAPPY

...also eventually more anxious, jumpy, moody, prone to useless rumination and fretting, plus I also tend to put on weight a bit when I drink it because it messes with my insulin and blood sugar, making me feel hungry more often.

PART B

When I'm not drinking coffee I feel...

calm, grounded, drowsy.


CONCLUSION

Is decaf okay? Can I just smell yours? What if I just swish it around in my mouth and spit it out?

So how's the no coffee thing going? You haven't posted in a couple of days, did you keel over? I sure hope not.

I like that you listed out pros and cons because that's a convincing argument. Without that I would've said, you know... life's too short. Have the coffee. But if it really does have measurable deleterious effects, then perhaps your sacrifice will be rewarded. I wish for you an adequate substitute... one that will befriend you in the same way that coffee had prior, but that will not have the added baggage.

I was going to draw a cartoon on my blog of the before/after coffee effect on me at work.

I *have* to do it now, don't I...
