I do not like the taste of coffee. Odd, considering I grew up in rural Minnesota, but there it is. I've never liked the taste of coffee, even coffee candy. I take a couple of sips if it's the only thing on offer, but I'm always unable to finish.
So why, I wonder, upon entering an unfamiliar coffee shop, do I never remember to ask, "hey, that delicious-sounding chocolate drink that does not list coffee as an ingredient, and is on the nominally non-coffee side of the menu board--that doesn't contain any coffee, does it?" Feh.
In less my own fault news, the new hot drinks machine at work doesn't clean its own pipes very well or something, because it makes all the non-coffee drinks taste of coffee. I'm going to bring this up to the cafe manager if I happen to think of it when I actually see him next.
I had a Christmas card shoved under my apartment door last night, by a neighbor, I'm thinking. It's Hawaiian-themed.
Family is worried that the predicted blizzard might prevent travel on Christmas. That'd be a bummer.
Hope you and yours are keeping warm.
