Shirley Temple--whoa
I'm trying to limit my caffeine intake just to see if I can.
An exercise in control.
One cup of coffee creeps up to two, too often.
I'm done with the first cup this morning, already.
And it went down so fast. So fast and so smooth.
It was coffee of the subconscious. As automatic as breathing. As comforting as home after a long journey (for what is wakefulness but the end of the journey of the night).
So now, cup two.
I have no control.
I give in.

Half-caf is my secret. Then I feel like I can drink as much coffee as I want.

I wonder if my co-workers would notice if I switched out the communal pot...

Getting caffeine from pop and not from coffee, I find that the fact that I don't keep pop around greatly helps me.

I used to have people suggest that I should save money and just buy a 24 pack and leave it at the office. If I did that, I'd pretty much go through one of those every couple of days.

Also, you should submit this post to a poetry contest. It reads very well!

The benefit to coffee is that, on its own, it has very few calories--so it doesn't have the sugar/weight issue that people usually try to avoid with soda/pop.

My shaking leg right now tells me that I shouldn't abuse it either, though.

True, though for me to be able to drink coffee it has to have a ton of sugar and milk in it.

I ordered one of those new Starbucks Toasted Carmmel Lattees...and it was not nearly sweet enough. I honestly considered dumping a few tablespoons of sugar in it to make it edible.
