“In highschool I was addicted to Coke. And after the headaches wore off and I could sleep regularly… I found coffee.”

“Oh wow, that’s so great. That must have been very hard for you. I mean… you don’t look like the type that… w-what I mean is that… I didn’t know they had similar effects. I mean… I guess now that I think about it…”

“Coca-cola.”

“Oh. Well… that’s not as impressive.”

Apparently the clearer my communication gets… the more underwhelming my addictions are.
