I love when Starbucks gets my order wrong. I truly do! I take a sip, and I’m like, “This is so delicious,someone must’ve messed up.”
You see, some time ago I switched to decaf.
I know what you’re thinking:
I tried the cold-turkey method, and my head felt like a sumo-wrestling buffalo bungee-jumped on top of me. While wearing a weighted diving suit. After three Thanksgiving meals.
It went something like this:
Day 1: Two Caffeinated Grandes
Day 2: One Decaf Grande
Day 3: Brain Splinters/filled out DNR
Needless to say, I learned my lesson.
After I regained consciousness, I tried the incremental method, which worked much better for my addiction:
Day 1: Venti Caffeinated
Day 2: Grande Caffeinated
Day 3: Tall Caffeinated
Day 4: Short Caffeinated (it exists)
Day 5: Short Decaf
Day 6: Death
Just kidding on that last one.
So, I hear you when you ask, “What about the taste?” Well, yeah it’s not going to be better, but I feel better.
The reason(s) I switched are due to my fast metabolism. I was not disappointed at the new results – I eat less often and am less shaky between meals. I still pee too much, but that’s from what physicians call a ittybladder. 10 could fit on the head of a pin. (Why are doctors always trying to put things on pinheads?)
Have you switched from caf to decaf? Post in comments.
