Coffee = Yelling?





‎"In general, more than 1.5 grams of caffeine a day can cause the typical symptoms of caffeinism: anxiety, insomnia, IRRITABILITY and palpitations." - Richard A. Friedman, M.D. in the NY Times

That's about 6 cups of coffee or 2 venti Starbucks. In my family we say that someone who is complaining, or being irritable, or just being a pain in the butt is "yelling their head off." So if I'm ever yelling my head off, you'll probably know why.

  1. I LOVE THIS!

    I, too, have a love of the bean caffeine.

    Once, during a particularly crazy coffee woodstock, I almost talked my husband into running for President.
