Coffee again

I had not realized that making a cup of coffee was such a ritual--and a very
individual ritual at that. For me, the first thing into the cup is two
packets of Splenda, followed by just enough hot coffee out of the urn to
dissolve it. Swish. Next comes ice to a specific point in the cup, since I
prefer my coffee cold. (Heathen, I know.) Back to the urn, and the cup gets
filled with coffee. Next comes one little plastic cup of liquid hazelnut
creamer, poured counterclockwise into the top. On goes the cup's cap, a
quick swirl to mix the creamer, and we're done.

Strange. But effective.

How about a caffine change? French vanilla tea or maybe vanilla hazelnut? If so, I will send you some. It is great hot or cold. I prefer it cold. lol

Are you Mom? :o)

I tried bringing along my favorite chai spice tea, but it didn't seem to work for me. I think part of the substitution is kinesthetic. Coffee and coca-cola are 'heavier' across the tongue than tea. Willing to try something new, though.

In other news, today is the first no-Coca-cola day so far!

Yep...it's me. I'll send you some. I am not quite sure how to get an identity on this thing yet. I will figure it out. lol
