As far as beverages go, I sip a lot of different things. I like milk, sodas, lemonade, cocoa, water... But my favorite is tea. I did drink coffee when I was in college. I even had the occasional batch of chocolate covered espresso beans, but never really could get to where I liked the flavor. It was a means to stay awake during study, not really an enjoyment. Some people like to drink it... I like the SMELL of coffee, but really don't care for the flavor.
But, tea. I love tea. Love it especially when it is dark, so dark that it is even mistaken FOR coffee. A dear friend of mine termed this "English Workingman's tea". I chuckled, when she continued, "when you stir it, and the spoon dissolves, then it's ready."
Well, I don't really think mine is QUITE that strong, but it is a bit more stout than most I have seen...
I normally drink water, and tea at the ren faire I perform at. We had a wake for another dear friend that had passed away, and most know that I don't drink at faire. Some had assumed I didn't drink, period. So we all walked up to the pub, and I took two beers. I was with my Dad, and a few friends, and they all said, "You only need one for the toast." I replied, I realize that...
And set one beer by my Dad, and I took the other. We had the toast, and when all was said, I took a long sip. You could have heard a pin drop at my table.
"YOU DRANK THAT!"
"But you don't drink!"
"No. I don't drink often."
Gotta keep 'em guessing somehow!
