Top 10 List Mini-Challenge


This one is hosted by Softdrink. We're supposed to make a Top 10 list like on David Letterman that has a read-a-thon theme. Here's mine.

TOP 10 WAYS YOU KNOW YOU'VE HAD TOO MUCH COFFEE DURING THE READ-A-THON

10. Just the smell makes you feel perkier.
9. You can't even think about going to sleep.
8. Your hands feel empty without a cup in it.
7. You can't find your coffee mug and start to freak out, and scold your boyfriend when you find out he washed it when you were obviously still using it.
6. You automatically fill the coffee pot when you see it's close to empty.
5. You can't keep your fingers still enough to type a coherent sentence.
4. You can no longer taste food because you have continuously taken your first sip when it was still entirely too hot.
3. Your urine begins to smell like coffee.
2. Your mind races so fast you can no longer remember what you were just thinking.

AND NUMBER ONE....
1. You now know why they call coffee a natural laxative.

I had tons of fun with this one! Thanks softdrink!
