Too Much Info.....

Even this picture of my favorite coffee cup makes me smile. That's how pathetic I am....lol.




What happens when you share too much info with your friends? It comes back to bite ya...lol



So, here's the deal, when I drink too much coffee my nose itches. Why? I have no idea, but it's not attractive. I can't leave it alone once I've had my third or fourth cup. You would think that this would be enough to keep me away from the black concoction, but oh no, it will take more than that. The thing is that it's a no calorie drink, that's hot, and with a little nonfat vanilla creamer, I feel like I'm getting a lot of bang for my buck.



Anyway, I have shared this tidbit of info with all who will listen. Again, why? Because that's what I do, I share too much, which is probably why I blog...hehe Anyway, this black coffee isn't good for me, and my friends know this, and being that I have really good friends, when they see me abusing my nose they know something is up.



So today, while I was out and about with Mary, and we were pulled up to the drive-thru window of McDonalds, I was going to town with my nose. Now I'm not messing with the inside, thankfully , but I just can't stop man handling the outer tip, it's really NOT attractive. However, once I've been over my coffee limit, there's no going back for a few hours, or even the next day. Anyway, Mary looks my direction and sweetly says, "Trina, you've had too much coffee today, haven't you?" Like a little kid with their hand stuck in the cookie jar, I wide eye confess, that yes, I was into something that I shouldn't have been into. We both giggle. Nevertheless, I let her know that I was still counting on stopping at the espresso stand for a little something something....hehehe



So, I'm wondering if maybe I need to join a little anonymous group for coffee addicts. Does anyone know of any? "Hello, my name is Trina, and I'm a *rubbing nose* coffeeaholic."

Isn't it great to have good friends that know you so well? And that even though she called you on having too much coffee, I bet she drove you to the espresso stand!? Now, that's a good friend!

I'll join! I also have a serious coffee problem. It involves the sugar free creamer, and that makes my shoulders ache. Not a little ache, a big ache, you'd think that would stop me, and it does regularly. However, I keep returning to the stuff, first black, then a little regular creamer, then, when I start drinking too much, the really wicked stuff. I have now been coffee free for 8 days with only 1 20 oz. espresso in 23 days. Pretty good for me. After 30 days I will let myself start again with the understanding that I will never cross the creamer line again. If I do Chantel will lift her eyebrows at me. Again.

You're too funny. I love coffee, but it sounds like you REALLY love coffee!! I like to have it a couple of times a week, but 3 or 4 cups? Honey child. INTERVENTION is calling your name. I am still laughing about the image of you rubbing your nose like a Coke addict. (Why is that funny to me? Who knows!)

Trina,
Hey! That is so strange and funny. Maybe it is an internal gauge telling when enough is enough...hehe

Anna said...

That is hilarious!!! I love me some coffee too, I must admit. I drink a HUGE cup every morning...probably equals atleast 2 regular size cups. Thats all I have though...if I drink any past about noon...I can't sleep at night.

Next time I scratch my nose, I'll think of you & your addiction!! LOL

Trina....Darling, well I think you do have an itsy bitsy problem. However, the fact that I help contribite to your coffee addiction by encouraging the "frequent stops" at our little espresso stand leaves my opinion null-in-void!!

Good morning Trina.. Are you drinking your 4th cup of coffee yet, despite sharing this post? I love my coffee too, yet while nursing I cut wayyy back. I can't wait to go back to the nose itching days with you.

Heehee! I always love coming to your blog! I leave with a big o'l smile on my face! I love the pictures of the boys on your side bar!!
Have you decided if you are going to have Susie fix you up or not? I go back and forth ~ everyday ~

So Roman likes to play hide and seek with stuff too! (phone) Sarah's favorite hiding place is the trash can!! Whenever we are missing something we look there and most times there it is on top of all our yucky garbage!

Happy Thursday
love ya
