What I Meant to Say Was

I don't drink coffee, which is a bit awkward around the other mathematicians. It's like being the only sober guy at a frat party. There's even a famous saying about this, "A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems." If that's true, I'm like a hybrid that runs on orange juice and vodka.

Sometimes, I walk around with a little coffee mug filled with soda. This is passable but, fails under close inspection.

"Gee Dave, why is your coffee bubbling like that?"


"It's just really fucking hot."

Vodka and Orange Juice? Are you a fan of Screwdrivers too?

Yesterday I put white wine in my coffee cup (and when I finally got a wine glass, I put coffee in that, even though I don't drink it). It looked like I was drinking tea. You could try that.
