top 10 signs you're addicted to coffee

The idea for this post came to mind when I realized that 2 scoops of ground coffee beans no longer work for me. I am now at 3 scoops per 6 ounces of water, two times a day.

10) In the movie Meet the Robinsons, you had an a-ha moment when that Lucille character introduced the caffeine patch. You wonder why that hasn't been marketed before. So you google it, and learn there is actually such a product. And then you do cartwheels. In your head.

9) You dream in shades of caramel, cappuccino, flat white, and espresso.

8) You think men (or women, as the case may be) should be like coffee, too: rich, dark, and coarsely grounded. Mmm, perfect for that shiny, new French Press you just bought.

7) You've noticed your officemates avoiding you on early mornings, when you haven't had your morning coffee yet.

6) You have to have coffee in order to sleep well at night.

5) Your boyfriend knows that whenever he takes you out on a date, the first stop in your itinerary is the coffeeshop.

4) On a similar note, he also knows (or learned from experience) to never, ever pick an argument with you if you haven't had your caffeine fix yet.

3) As an anniversary gift, your boyfriend tells you you can do whatever you want to him. Giddy with possibilities, you rack up your mind for ideas. And then you tell him to dress up in that cute barista costume and serve you coffee all week long. Or even a whole month, if you can get away with it.

2) When you enter your neighborhood coffee shop, the baristas automatically take down the "Coffee Refill at Half the Price!" sign.

1) If you had children, they would be named Latte, Macchiato, and Coffee Jelly. (Frappuccino is for wimps.)

blog hopping on a bored sunny Wednesday morning...i love your candid and nonchalant ways of writing...i feel like i'm eavesdropping on a conversation between you and yourself. and it's been a real pleasure, too. Should I feign guilt? haha

macchiato and latte=best childrens names EVER! although i have to defend the caramel frappuchino on hot days...

i agree, a frap's not so bad on a hot summer day. but i would ask the barista to add one or two shots of espresso to go with it. :)
