Anyhoo, I was feeling good about myself reading these stats because I don't drink Red Bull, Monster or any of these energy drinks. Never have. Yes, I look down upon you energy-guzzling poor souls who require your jolt of energy from a multi-colored can!

Note to Hubby: You accidentally broke my ceramic Starbucks travel mug the other day. I forgive you. But I'm waiting for the replacement model. Remember, I'm on a psycoactive drug. You've been warned.
