i love caffeine, but my heart hates it
next to perhaps milk, my favorite thing to drink is pop. the waiting staff at keys cafe know that i always want a cherry coke. my blog derived part of it's name from pepsi twist. even the dentist says that since i drink it, it's best to chug it. (this lessens the time your teeth are exposed to the acidic ingredients.)
i've developed a little bit of an addiction to the caffeinated concoction. i was at the grocery store checkout with a 24 pack of mountain dew. the checkout lady said, "you can get a 2nd 24 pack for half off, and then a 12 pack for free." 60 cans of pop? sign me up. at 3-5 cans a day, i can easily tear through that. especially when chugging like the dentist prescribed.
my heart has worked so hard loving pop, that it hurts. for reals. i started to notice every time i drank pop, my heart would flutter, in a bad skipping a beat sort of way. rather than going to the doctor for an EKG, i self diagnosed myself on webmd. too much caffeine it said. and since my heart is a vital organ, i've decided to cut back. once my final 24 pack is empty i'll give it up completely. with the exception of the occasional beverage while eating out. things like this make me feel old.
a heart with a twist of lemon, indeed.
