    Wawa? That sent me scurrying to Wikipedia because the only Wawa I know is in Ontario.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wawa,_Pennsylvania

    Hilarious:

    Cynthia Mayer of the Philadelphia Inquirer said in 1989 that there was "the indignity of being from a town now associated with convenience store (Wawa Inc.). Unlike, say, Hershey, Pa. - or Wawa's cherished dairying past - outsiders now tend to associate Wawa with Cheetos, emergency toilet paper errands and Super Squeezers."[6]

    I must find a way to work "Super Squeezers" into a conversation.

    Two cups in the morning brings my twelve cup machine down to about the halfway mark, which leaves just enough for the afternoon:D 16104769217152113393481.jpg

    Two 14oz mugs, I'm done. When I worked, I'd have my 2 X 14 and then have 2 more at work before 10am = 56oz = 7/16 of a gallon or 1.6 liters

    Coffee doesn't affect me at all until I get above about 3/4 gallon. Then I start feeling a little jittery...but it doesn't affect my, um, regularity. My Dr. recommended I test my blood chemistry without caffeine by "fasting" for a week before the test. Didn't affect the numbers at all, no change in BP, no change in anything. He said, "Go away, you're an outlier." He was working on some kind of professional paper and I didn't fit his conclusions...

    When I had a regular pub to go to, I limited myself to 2 beers (during the work week) after which I would drink their free coffee. Beyond eventually having to throw a dart, visit the bathroom, throw a dart, etc., etc., all it did was prevent me from driving home drunk after an evening at the pub.

    Now that I am no longer standing "the watch", I fluctuate between a half to one pot a day. Today started as a one pot day. I really should cut back:oops:.

    I find there is a 1 cup cross-over when I reach the Mad Magazine state.

    My heart doesn't really get up to speed until after at least two big cups (travel mug size).
    Then maybe 1-2 more just to get the morning going.

    On weekends, it's maybe two regular (large) sized cups...since I have to share with my wife.
    But yea, for some reason, on weekends, it seems to work it's magic on my lower GI tract....

    My wife pours herself two 20oz cups and spills out half of the second. I drink two 16oz cups and start another. I don’t have coffee again until 7 or 8 after dinner when I start practicing. That’s a double cappuccino with a cookie or a small chocolate square.

    I drink alot of coffee perfect an Italian roast, on the weekends I will lose count but usually stop by 11:00. One thing about the c word is plenty of extra time to write and drink coffee with no music venues open for gigs and shows.

    Of the three common methylated xanthines, caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, caffeine is by far my favorite.

    When I was working I drank coffee all day - 6 or 7 cups probably, not counting the large travel mug I drank in the car on the way to work. We had a free coffee service that provided the coffee and restaurant-grade equipment, so it was easy to partake. Since I retired, I've cut down to 2 large cups in the morning, for no apparent reason. I don't miss the extra caffeine, but I do miss the camaraderie of spontaneous coffee breaks. We had a small crew, and it didn't take much to get us to stop whatever we were doing and into the break room.

    On the weekends I often have a third cup before the mrs takes me for a walk.

    I often have to rush the last half mile of the return loop!

    I usually make it. :eek:

    I know the answer to that. You start wondering whether you'd like to start smoking cigarettes again.
