This is my second official, no wait, make that my THIRD official day without coffee. I made it past the headaches (sort of), without downing more than a few Aleve, but now the “craving” is starting to take over. That craving has me driving south, towards Starbucks on autopilot. This craving has me “tasting” coffee when I look at a coffee mug. I don’t know why I actually cut coffee out of my diet anyways – but I think that I was tired of the shakes and the jitters.
You see, I am one of those types of people that is never seen standing or sitting still for very long. I have alot of positive energy and alot of nervous energy. Let’s call the nervous energy, a by-product of my demented metabolism. Ergo – “I don’t need additional shakes and jitters for heaven’s sake!” Let’s use a metaphor, shall we? It’s like giving a Chihuahua a dose of crack cocaine and watching him flip out – all day long – on slippery hardwood floors nonetheless (not a pretty sight to behold!). Hence, this Chihuahua has stopped “snorting” the Jo, the Java, the evil Bean.
Speaking of Evil Bean – Mr. Bean has a new movie coming out later this summer – “Disaster Has a Passport” (hmm…sounds like me when I’m racing to catch a plane in LAX!). I think that the movie may have already been released in the UK (March 2007 – Lucky Brits! [sigh]). Anyways, where was I? Oh, yes. The “distracted Chihuahua” thing….”So what is life like without coffee?” you may ask (if you haven’t denied yourself). Well. Let’s put it this way. Nothing has changed!!! I still have the same insane, tremendous energy that I had before! What does this mean? Am I the new Energizer spokes-bunny? [thump, thump….]. Given that news, maybe I should hop my ass on over to Starbucks [hop, hop] and pick me up a brew…..
“I’ll have a vente, skinny, vanilla latte please – no whip…Oh, and a piece of carrot cake too – please.” [nose twitch]
phew! zany? nuts? quirky? or just hopeless?
