is actually green tea this morning
I'll let you know how that goes
The thought of quitting coffee doesn't actually bother me, I've quit on several occasions. During a pregnancy, a January 1 of some year - this time it's not a resolution or anything
Just something I'd like to try, to see if I feel better in any way shape or form
not that I feel bad, but supposedly tea is better for the ol' body than coffee is
I just worry about the lack of coffee headaches.
I'll just need to eat a lot of chocolate, I figure
Growing up, I never planned to drink coffee at all. As a little girl, I had tipped the cup of coffee acting the part of a big girl and gotten a mouth full of what we called satka's, or coffee grounds.
Cured me good, before I even started.
I didn't have a single sip of coffee until 1991, when I was already 24. A time when nearly all my friends were drinking it but I maintained my status as a 'no thank you, just water' gal.
And then I went to Finland and spent a year as a nanny.
Even then, I didn't drink coffee right away.
But I did a lot of visiting when I was in Finland
And what I learned is at that time, the Finns assumed that everyone drinks coffee. I mean...what Finn doesn't, right? I'm curious now, when my fund every grows large enough to go back for a visit, if it's still the same way.
So because I got so weary of saying no thank you to the coffee when it was already set in front of me
weary of saying in my kindergarten Finn, "ei kiitos"
and being a bother who drank tea instead
I became a coffee drinker. And I liked it. We drink it here at home every bit as strong as a born to Finland coffee drinker drinks it.
Both Pa and I are switching over
to green tea
and it's good
