Today I've found myself working the phones. I'm keeping myself pert and alive by making trips to the corner gas station to refill on caffeine. I never touch Sweet 'n' Low, and have started avoiding Equal as well. A friend of mine's aunt used to drink 6 cups of tea a day, each sweetened with three packets of Equal. Eventually, she ended up with bladder cancer, which her doctor unofficially attributes to her habit. Extreme, yes, but still, I'd rather have bitter coffee than bladder cancer!
