Now I am not normally stupid...who said "No, abnormally stupid?" Come on, I've got all day - my wife's in Devon and my tea is a frozen pizza? Sorry, I digress. where was I...yes. I have just drunk a cafetiere of coffee. A big fecker. Which is not a huge volume but I made a classic schoolboy error and used the espresso grounds not the cafetiere sort. so I am now floating four inches of the deckhead, feeling clammy of skin and fevered of brain. There is a rushing in my ears, a pounding in my temples and I have a priapic erection. "Which is all par for the course on a Saturday morning" I hear you say but not for yours cuddly. does anyone know of an antidote to incipient caffeine poisoning? I am really feeling very very odd. blood sugar level is normal to low so it isn't that. It isn't alcohol poisoning because I refrained from grape and grain last night. Any suggestions - obviously I could put the usual caveat of "sensible" only but as that is a red-rag to a bull in most cases, I won't bother. However bear in mind that burying a toad at midnight at a crossroads is not as good a folk remedy as people make it out to be!
