I may be a freak, but I'm a skinnier freak

Call me a freak, but I do not like coffee. Never have and at this point, don't think I ever will. And for the longest time, I had no interest in tea either. This was very disturbing to most people I encountered in my college and post-college days.

THEM: "What do you mean you don't drink coffee? Or tea?"
ME: "Well. I don't drink coffee ... or tea."

This was difficult for them to grasp. Occasionally I would say that I drank hot cocoa just to get them off my back.

Eventually I did start drinking tea. It was either the trip to Ireland or the first Starbucks chai latte that did it, or possibly a really sore throat. I've since moved beyond the milk and sugar, and can and do drink tea straight up.

In fact, I usually drink 4 to 6 cups a day. So a book called The Ultimate Tea Diet? Was right up my alley, even though I am not dieting, have never dieted, and generally do not believe in diets.

I NEEDS my coffee.
I love tea. Hot, iced, chai, all of it. Except those fruity, herbal teas. Black peco is good for me.

When we drove past a Starbuck's, Maggie shouted, "Look Mommy! There's a store of MOMMY FUEL!"

Yay for finding a fellow non-coffee drinker. I come from a family who mainlines it all day long, but I've just never been a fan.

Eh, I could not function without the java but tea to me is like a dessert, I savor the different kinds.

You are a freak. Coffee is God's gift to us.

I don't drink coffee or tea, I don't even really drink hot chocolate, makes my teeth feel like they're wearing sweaters.
Gross right?
