***You Know You're Drinking Too Much Coffee When...
You answer the door before people knock.
You just completed another sweater and you don't know how to knit.
You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer.
You're the employee of the month at the local coffeehouse and you don't even work there.
You can type sixty words per minute ... with your feet.
You don't sweat, you percolate.
You walk twenty miles on your treadmill before you realize it's not plugged in.
Starbucks owns the mortgage on your house.
When someone says. "How are you?", you say, "Good to the last drop."
You help your dog chase its tail.
Remember when eggs were bad and we were only to have 2 a week or something like that? Now they are good for us.
The caffeine in coffee used to bad for us now I have read where it is good for us.
Personally, coffee affects my blood pressure so I have switched to decaf. Seems like that defeats the purpose. Is it all in my head? Is there a difference in taste? I think the regular has more "body" as opposed to the unleaded. I have been drinking more tea lately. There are some pretty good ones out there.
I have a friend who has real chickens - the kind that are down on the ground scratching for gravel, eating bugs, and doing what chickens are supposed to do. These eggs are so big she can hardly get the lid closed on the carton. They are brown and it takes a pretty good whack to crack the shell. The yolk is so rich it is deep orange. These things have to be good for us. I have to let them set for a time before I hard boil them. Fresh eggs are a bear to get peeled. I often have just the yolk left or just some of the white. I have a word I use for super frustration and it is "shit". Do you know where that word came from? It is an acronym for "ship high in transit". Hauling manure in the bow of ships (why anyone would do that is beyond me) would rot the wood so manure was to be SHIT - ship high in transit.
Another word I find pretty disgusting is an acronym for "fornication under carnal knowledge". It was legal terminology. I hate when people use that word.
I remember when our son Nathan was young (about 5) he was standing in the kitchen and said, "Mom, I don't understand why shit is a bad word." I didn't really have an answer but I said that usually when people use words like that they were angry or trying to insult or hurt someone's feelings. That was the best I could do.
