    Better: I spew coffee as fast as I drink it.

    But is that what you really mean? It doesn't make much sense. You might mean: I tasted the coffee and quickly spit it out.

    That would fit your "Good day gone bad" title better.

    IMPORTANT: Always start sentences with capital letters. Always capitalize the word I. Always end sentences with a punctuation mark - usually a period. If you don't, the entire sentence is wrong.

    Some of the teachers here don't answer people who ignore those basic rules. So you'll get faster answers if you follow them. It shows courtesy.

    I hope that helps!

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Are you sick the second you try to drink coffee?
