Too much is never enough, they say. And with some things, I think that's probably true. But not most of the time. Most of the time, too much of a good thing is illegal, or will make you sick.
It is with that in mind that I write today. I don't have any sort of long, esoteric diatribe on the nature of things. Rather, I have idle speculation.
What if caffeine were regulated like alcohol? What if you had to be a certain age to consume it at all? And what if, beyond that, there were still certain limits imposed?
I'm imagining myself turning away a customer. "I think you've had enough, sir."
This is nothing worth devoting too much intellectual energy too, of course. But it is an idea that makes for interesting pondering. And perhaps, a bad little short story.
