Tea is great, especially since coffee causes me to lose my balance. In college I would cruise through two cups of Folger’s in the morning, and on my walk to class the hallway would start lurching back and forth. I’d steady myself up against a wall, but then the wall would start vibrating and I would freak out.
In the immortal words of Brak: “Coffee always makes me jittery. Here’s an impression of me on coffee: ‘Hey! Hey hey hey! Whatareyoudoin whatareyadoin whatareyoudoin whatareyoudoin whatareyoudoin whatareyoudoin whatareyoudoin (deep breath) whatareyoudoin whatareyoudoin what are you doin’, I don’t know what you’re doin’ cuz I drank too much coffee!’
Don’t drink too much coffee, kids.”

Sadly enough, I started drinking coffee in my younger days, as in 4th grade. My dad said my eyes were as big as marbles after just half a cup. He said I kept running into things after a full cup, which explains the scar I have over my eye from running into the TV.
Now, all these years later, I stay as far away from coffee as possible…. Coffee BAD, Tea GOOD!
