Fixin' To Get My Fix

Virtually everyone I know has a drug problem.

Some folks can’t get through an evening with their kids without a glass or three of Chardonnay.

Others need some Doggy Downers to help them sleep at night (and invariably require Puppy Uppers to wake ‘em up in the morning).

Some have to sneak out to the patio to set fire to a cancer stick because the receptors in their brains have told them they can’t survive without a bit of nicotine.

So what is the most common drug people take in America? Oh, I don’t have any proof, but I have a feeling caffeine would be pretty damn near the top of the list.

Am I addicted to caffeine? Nope. I can yawn my way through a day and suffer with barely a symptom. But why go caffeine-less when my foamy cup of Senseo tastes so good?

When I'm not in the mood for a cup of Joe, I've found another novel way to get a quick jolt of Up-And-At-‘Em. May I introduce you to “Caffeinated Jell-O Shots.”

The premise is simple:

Take 2 boxes of Jell-O, a cup of boiling water, and 400 mg of crushed NoDoze pills and refrigerate to make a yummy treat.

Now if I only had some chocolate-covered espresso beans, I’d be all set.


  1. You do NOT!

    Do you? Do you REALLY?

  2. She really does, and I indulge in them just as much as she does... well, not "just as much." She'll have 8 and holler at me when I have 4. Four of them equals a single cup of coffee. They're oh-so-good!

  3. Well, I got Jell-O. Now all I need is some No Doze pills.

    This is funny.
