You Know You Are Addicted to Coffee if:

You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.
You sleep with your eyes open.
You have to watch videos in fast-forward
The only time you're standing still is during an earthquake.
You can take a picture of yourself from 10 ft. away without using the timer.
You've worn out your third pair of tennis shoes this week.
Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.
You chew on other peoples' fingernails.
The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse...
You're so jittery that people use your hands to blend their margaritas.
You can type 60 words per minute with your feet.
You can jump-start your car without cables.
You don't sweat - you percolate.
You walk 20 miles on your treadmill before you realize it's not plugged in.
You forget to unwrap candybars before eating them.
You've built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers.
People get dizzy just watching you.
Instant coffee takes too long...
You channel surf faster without the remote.
You have a picture of your coffee mug on your coffee mug.
You can outlast the Energizer Bunny.
You short out motion detectors.
You don't even wait for the water to boil anymore.
Your nervous twitch registers on the Richter scale.
You help your dog chase its tail.
You soak your dentures in coffee overnight.
You first-aid kit containts 2 pints of coffee with an I.V. hookup.
You ski uphill.
You get a speeding ticket even when you're parked.
You answer the door before people knock.
You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse.

A Long, Happy Life...

A nurse walked up to a little old man in his rocking chair in the dayroom.

"I couldn't help noticing how happy you look," she said.  "What's your secret for a
long, happy life?"

"I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day," he said.  "I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fatty foods, and never exercise."

"That's amazing," said the nurse.  "How old are you?!"

"Twenty-six," he replied...
