Does coffee make New Yorkers smart and skinny?
If I take time for mid afternoon tea or coffee and a tiny snack, I feel much better. Teatime was invented because people tend to naturally fall asleep in the afternoon. New Yorkers drink a lot of coffee. I find that I drink more coffee here than when I was in college, which says a lot, because (multiple choice follows):
a. it's a competitive town, and those who drink the most caffeine can outperform their colleagues.
b. there are great coffee shops.
c. New York is at times so stressful that the only way to deal with it is to bring on more stress.
d. New Yorkers think that coffee makes them skinny.
e. New Yorkers think that coffee makes them smarter.
The correct answers are B and E.
