Things I Shouldn’t Drink

I’ve come to the conclusion that there are just some things I should’t drink.

I’m talking about energy drinks.

I’ve only had one on purpose. It was a bad trip and I’d really rather not go into the details.  It was ugly and I felt horrible afterwards.  The after effects of an energy drink just weren’t worth the fun of all that extra energy.

It was enough for me to say “never again.”

(kind of like when people drink too many margaritas, or so I’ve been told.)

Recently, I accidentally drank another energy drink.

I knew partway through the can that I was in trouble.  I felt like I could fly.  I could see smells.  Given that this was happening during prime writing time, this wasn’t good.  My keyboard couldn’t keep up with my fingers. Neither could my brain.

The good news was that, unlike the other time, I didn’t end up with heart palpitations and cold sweats.  I’m also happy to report that I didn’t have that crashing feeling at the end.  Better, but still… never again.

(kind of like the difference between too much premium tequila and too much generic tequila. theoretically speaking)

Energy Drinks = Things I shouldn’t drink.

i regret drinking cheap tequilla and energy drinksSeriously.  I looked at the blog drafts I wrote while under the influence.  I would have written better if I’d actually HAD been drinking a margarita (or two).

I was still flying high on the energy drink when my husband texted me.

Him:  Hey.

Me:  Hi!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Him:  are you ok?

Me:  I can fly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!! look at me i can fly…………

Me: whatdidyouwant?

Me: wow, i can type really really fast

Him: What are you drinking?

Me:  that drink you left me

Him: put the drink down.

I’ll spare you the details.  I annoyed him with status updates every five minutes for the next hour or so. It was obnoxious.

I have to ask.  Is there anything (other than cheap tequila) that you shouldn’t drink?

  1. Can’t drink those either. And I have seen enough how my kids’ friends act after drinking them to ban them in my house. I don’t think my kids are too interested….they’ve seen what they do to you too.
