Now, if you want to test out the effects of drinking coffee from each of those locations, we recommend sampling one cup from 2-4 establishments each day as this will make you all tickety-boo*.

Results revealed that the risk of suicide for adults who drank between 2-4 cups of coffee each day was 50% lower when compared with adults who drank decaffeinated coffee, very little or no coffee.

*yes, tickety-boo is British and therefore more appropriate for tea but it’s a great expression. What what.

Pin It to Win It Give Away

Here’s a formula to score some goodies from your favorite internet office supply store:

1. Find your favorite writing implements* in our store

2. Pin them to Pinterest with a note on why you like them

3. Post the link to your Pinterest board on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/theofficedealer)

4. Sit back and wait till Pi Day (you know when that is, right?). We’ll send one lucky person the writing implement of their choice.

* By “writing implements” we basically mean pens, markers, highlighters and the like. But if you’re one of those funky pinter-etsy people who writes with clay, stickers, paperclips or whatever–go ahead, pin those.
