I have always enjoyed iced tea, but would only order it in restaurants. Have I mentioned the my fondess for laziness?
One day almost a year ago, Hubba-hubba bought me an iced tea maker (no, not for my birthday or our anniversary, just because). It was around that time when the big news was how unhealthy drinking diet colas was and all that, so I decided to switch cold turkey to drinking iced tea exclusively.
I experimented with different teas, finding new ones that I liked, and finding a few inedible clunkers as well. But, I at least had the choice of making different teas instead of the same old, same old.
I started feeling better. Not like "Wow! I feel like running a marathon now!" better, but just a bit less bloated and actually felt more hydrated. I would drink and drink those Diet Cokes like a fiend, and yet still find myself thirsty. Not so with the tea. I don't put sugar in my tea, either, so that was even better.
There was still a flat of Diet Cokes in the garage, though, in case of emergency. And for the last few days, while there hasn't been an emergency, I have been too
I'm really busy, ok?
But then I started to feel blah. A teensy big sluggish, a more than teensy bit bloated in the tummy, and like I could never get enough of it to drink to feel not thirsty.
So, I have taken this long to tell you that I really don't ever want to drink Diet Coke any more. That tea makes me feel better, and I will make sure not to lapse into such extreme busyness that I don't make my own again.
My friends, was it worth reading all of that for just a two sentence conclusin?
Nah, but it sure made me feel better.
