jolt

June 22, 2010

Dog%20Bowl.jpgIt's three weeks since I gave up alcohol and coffee and surprisingly, it is the caffeine that's proving the hardest to live without. After walking the dog this morning, I set out a bowl for his Burns pork and potato dog food, and another for my breakfast of chopped apple, yoghurt and pecan nuts. I also picked up his dinner bowl to wash it.

I then went to my desk to eat my breakfast while surfing the daily news websites. Half way through, I looked down and to my horror, realised that I was eating from a dish decorated with paw prints and emblazoned with the words 'Feed Me' - basically, Biff's (unwashed) dinner bowl. Downstairs in the kitchen, he had eaten his breakfast from a Limoges porcelain dish. Ahaghhhhg! It seems to me that some of us really do need that jolt of caffeine to wake up in the morning.

Just this morning, heard that it might take as much as 5 cups of coffee to ward off Alzheimer's disease. Two are not enough! (Of course, this is an experiment that is being done on mice. How can a mouse drink 5 cups of coffee? Well, the researcher is totally convinced and is drinking 5 cups of coffee a day, himself.) No guidance on what constitutes a "cup." I'm going with 8 oz (about 250 mls).

I had to give up coffee for medical reasons 28 years ago and I still remember the agony (DTS) also cannot open a bag of coffee beans(when grinding for a dinner party) without inhaling the aroma deeply, still miss it, so good luck and my heartfelt best wishes, and as to warding off Alzheimer's any excuse can be found including sex, which would I think would be preferable, so how many cups of coffee would equal one sex session, only a coffee desperado would answer that.
