I’m in my 20’s and I don’t know how I like my tea or coffee. I quit caffeine seven years ago and trying to figure these things out now is interesting. The odd part is, I’m the official tea maker of the family. I know exactly the specifics for my mom, dad, sister, boyfriend and even my sister’s boyfriend… but in the last few days since I’ve been making myself tea, I pause for a second, (spoon in hand) and am unsure about the portions of milk and sugar that go in my mug.
When I was in Amrika, going into Starbucks meant getting rice crispy treats or cookies with hot chocolate….(you mean.. they serve coffee there?!!). I’ve ordered coffee here a few times, but due to lack of batti, I’ve settled for “regular coffee please”. I’ve yet to venture out for fancier coffee concoctions – cappuccinos, lattes, mochas, espressos – all a world entirely unknown to me! I need coffee coinsurers to guide me around the city so I can discover my drink of choice and have another thing on my list I can check that contributes to me being an “adult”.
Anyways, on top of being back on coffee and tea (btw, I truly believe that bhatti tea is the best!) I’m also back to drinking soda. I still don’t really like Coke, Sprite is about the same, but the Fanta from a decade ago that used to be my drink of choice seems watered down and doesn’t satisfy me like it used to. Sad day.
AND….and after giving up meat for a year, it’s nice to gobble up choila and momos and chicken chilly!!! (Plus I think my mom is happier about not having to make an extra veg dish to accommodate my dietary differences.)
This is my year and I have decided I’m not denying myself anything… opportunities, love, food… I want it and I want it all!!! (I still won’t eat capsicum though. That shit is nasty.)
So… call me for a coffee date, show me your fav spots, order me your fav drink – I’m up for all these new experiences…. and one day when some one says, “Milk? Sugar?” I’ll be able to say, “One spoon of sugar and milk on the side please!”… or whatever it is my undiscovered preference is.
