so there was THIS article, which- to paraphrase loosely- says that women who drink more than three cups of caffeine a day are doomed to be incontinent.
since reading this article (and, yes, it's from the daily mail so we should take it with a whole heap of salt), i've arrived at a general acceptance of my inevitable plight.
i drink entirely way more than three cups a caffeine a day. it's indecent. a figure so unacceptable i'm unwilling to even confess it to lindear.
i've done this for 20+ years. so, if three cups a day does damage, well then, that damage has pretty much been done.
mind you, i'm not far enough removed from the experience of having to buy adult diapers for a relative having digestive difficulty in a foreign land (which is an awesome story for another year) to not be totally horrified by this news. but, i am, after all, the fastest pee-er in the world. maybe that's a skill that's double-edged: both an athletic gift and an indicator that my incontinent doom has already begun.
