Too Much Coffee?

Caffeinated Joe shared this guide to how to tell if you've had too much coffee:
You’re Drinking Too Much Coffee When:

You ski uphill.
You speed walk in your sleep.
You answer the door before people knock.
You sleep with your eyes open.
You just completed your third sweater today,
and you don’t know how to knit.
You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.
You have to watch videos in fast-forward.
The only time you’re standing still is in an earthquake.
You lick your coffee pot clean.
Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.
The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse.
You can type sixty words a minute with your feet.
You don’t sweat, you percolate.
People get dizzy just watching you.
People can test their batteries in your ears.
Your birthday is a national holiday in Brazil.
Your Thermos is on wheels.
You can outlast the Energizer Bunny.
You don’t even wait for the water to boil anymore.
You don’t tan, you roast.
You soak your dentures in coffee overnight.
You think CPR stands for “Coffee Provides Resuscitation.”
It's hard to drink too much coffee, but it can be done. The Elder Son claims 4 cups a day will keep Alzheimer's at bay, but I'm so small I think I might float away. I usually get 2-3 cups a day, and it's almost always a morning thing with me. At that time Coffee does Provide Resuscitation.


  1. Laughing! I think I'm safe but like you sometimes it works as CPR.

    I don't get the list. Aren't these things normal?

  3. LOL! About 15 years or so, the husband ended up at the doctor´s because his heart was racing at night. How much coffee do you drink? asked the doc. Nothing, said the husband, who is exclusively a tea drinker. However, he easily drank 1-2 liters of tea a day, which was way too much. Since then, he limits himself to three cups and has had a steady heart ever since. And we thought tea was so benign, comparatively!

    Personally, I make one large, strong cup for breakfast, and that´s usually it. That is one important cupper, though.
