single frame: Drink coffee, do work

Drink Coffee Do Work

Drink coffee, do work
Apple iPhone 6s

Before I drive to work I drink three mugs of coffee. Then at work I drink as many as three more. It’s a family thing; we all do it. I tried to resist — I hardly drank coffee, just stayed away from it, through about my mid 20s. But I finally fell, and hard. And the older I get, the more I consume. But I’ve drawn the line: six mugs is all I’ll drink in a day. That’s a full pot of coffee!

    I used to be right there with you, but have cut down to about half that now: 2 in the morning and 1 after lunch. I think this is absolutely the minimum I will go, though.

      I went up to a full pot during The Insomnia Years and never backed down. I love drinking coffee, but every now and again have a shade of a thought that perhaps this is too much.

    Funny, I have a very similar mug but my coffee would have a bit of milk in it.

    My wife suckered me with the coffee, I was putting it on because I got up first in the morning, then figured I may as well start drinking it since I’m the one making it.

    I admire your coffee uptake limit, I’ve found that too much now gives me heart arrhythmia. While I was wearing the monitor for 24 hours that gave me time to think about how I should cut it back a bit :)

      I doubt I’ll cucker my wife with coffee. She’s a tea drinker, and a determined one at that!

    Mmmmm. Coffee! I was up to 8 cups of espresso in the morning at one point . . . now just 2 cups of 1/2 caff / 1/2 decaff at breakfast and lunch. I’ve calmed down a bit.

      Calm is not overrated.

    I only drink coffee in the morning; one when i wake up before leaving for work and another from that ubiquitous coffee shop when i get to work. Tea in the afternoon #iamsobritish ;)

      My wife is Irish and won’t touch coffee, but drinks tea all day. Could she be more British (in spirit) than you? ;-)

        Ha ha… maybe.
        I didn’t start drinking coffee regularly in the mornings until I spent time in this country; i think i may be losing my cultural identity.

    Hi have you ever heard of a Zombie coffee? I believe it has 2 cups of coffee, 3 shots of espresso, steamed milk, whipped cream, drizzles of chocolate and Carmel and a cherry on top. Read my blog post 81 on Zombie coffee.

      I take mine black – and regular strength!

        My daughter mentioned that anyone drinking the Zombie because of all the dairy and sugar probably turns into one …though there’s a YOUTube video where black coffee rehumanizes a zombie. Go figure.
