Note to Self:

You know how you always politely decline when people offer you coffee, because you just don’t like the taste? And if you happen to accept, you get grossed out afterwards because the aftertaste makes you kind of nauseated? And you know how you very, very rarely might have a cappuccino because it’s really cold or you need a big caffeine burst? And afterwards you spaz and no one can understand a word you’re saying?

Well, sister, let me give you yet another reason you should avoid such beverages. Let’s say you had one of those rare cappuccinos because you had a mid-term and needed that little nudge to get you through it. And let’s say that you had another cappuccino after the test because it was cold and rainy and you felt the need to celebrate. So all is good and fine for the next several hours, since you drank the second one at 4:00 p.m.

Be forewarned: everything comes crashing down about six hours later because you can’t get rid of the taste in your mouth no matter how many times you brush your teeth. And the entire experience is further complicated by the fact that caffeine somehow also stimulates other parts of your system, and you’re left running to the bathroom every ten minutes clutching a can of deoderizer.

Let this be a lesson to you, recorded for posterity for intimate friends and complete strangers to read.
