You know you're seriously coffee-deprived when your cup of coffee tastes like dreck because...
You poured a fresh cup and then forgot where you put it.
By the time you remembered you'd poured a fresh cup and found it, it was cold, so you *shudder* warmed it in the microwave... and forgot it. Then rewarmed it twice more (forgetting it each time) and finally, finding it, just drank the too-many-times-rewarmed stuff at room temp just to get the caffeine.
How do you know you're coffee-deprived?
