Caolinn: “That is not true!”

As I always say, “A day without coffee is a day with a body count…” I’m never hyper after my first cup… But I am easily riled if I haven’t had one and step into the world…
It’s liquid sanity, really.
Daddy’s little helper… Without it being blue or having a V punched through it. (Yep, that’s a drug reference, FTW)
I must admit that I have never understood the fascination with coffee. Give me something cold and carbonated.
I used to be like that, but I’m seen the dark side…and they have scones.
The boy’s logic is flawless on this one.
He completely had a point. Unfortunately, he almost ALWAYS has a point.
God help you.
If he doesn’t we’re all screwed.
I’m a coffee guy myself, but I have to lay off it after 2 – 3pm or so. Doesn’t keep me awake, just keeps me from sleeping well.
If you want to scare him off of Red Bull, share with him the urban legend that it contains bull semen. Not true, but he doesn’t need to know that.
Ewwwwwww…. Do you watch 30 Rock, by chance? Bull semen was the secret flavor component in Liz Lemon’s off-brand Mexican Cheetos. 🙂
Not a 30 Rock warcher, but I never did trust Cheetos. Something about the color and how it’s more permanent than a Sharpie . . .
S’true. The best part about it was that the bull semen gave her a false positive on a pregnancy test. lol
A long time ago I used to claim that I had never met a stimulant I didn’t like. Then I had a stroke. Now I sort of avoid them. My doctor asked me how I was doing in that regard, and I told him that my sole remaining vice was high fructose corn syrup. “Raw?” he asked. No, mostly in strawberry soda, I replied.
Coffee? pffft – I’ve given my daughter a taste of a pot brownie when she was in high school.
I didn’t leave her alone in the house though. I guess that makes me the better mother.
You’re just an excellent baker. 🙂
