Girls with thyroid conditions are sternly advised to steer clear of espresso. Bugging eyes, clammy skin, speaking in tongues and the terrified screams of innocent children are common indicators that too much caffeine has been imbibed.
However, without that first coffee of the morning I might as well be dead, because I would regard life as Not Worth Living. And if God chooses to take me a little earlier on account of a 2-espressos-a-day-habit, then so be it, and I will go gladly.
For I am a Rider At The Gates of Dawn, and I take no prisoners.
