Huang Guan Yin oolong in my cup today. Lovely stuff.
But on ice I did something totally different: limeade. 2 packets of True Lime (crystallized lime juice) and several drops of stevia in a big glass of ice water. Nice refreshing change on a warm day.
Virtally don't drink alcohol. In the past 3 years, I've think I've had only 1: a really delish after dinner chocolate cafe martini that didn't even taste like alcohol. Sweet drinks like that are exactly how I could have turned into an old rummy years ago, and with my addictive personality, why I've never played around with it.
I didn't grow up with alcohol and never learned to like the taste or the smell, and no matter what kind it is (not that I've been exposed to very many
), it always burns by the time it hits my stomach. But for me
, the main reason I abstain is that I've seen the damage overdrinking has caused to so many people, and I just can't give any of my money to the industry.
Chip: 20+ years...excellent job. Your world did not come crashing down around you last weekend because you
have continued to make good choices and you have not allowed the thoughtless act of an idiot to take control of your life. Proud and happy for you.
