I don’t like tea. Or coffee. Or so I thought.
It started innocently enough. It was cold out and I was at singing rehearsal and my hostess offered me an espresso. I drank it, she said I might need some sugar, but no. It was bitter, but …. ugh, I can’t believe I’m writing this… I LIKED it.
I thought it was a fluke. The cold changed my taste buds. I was so desperate for a drink that I talked myself into liking it. The chocolate I had earlier was still sweetening my food and drink.
But then… then a month later I got an email at work. Coffee and cake were being served for the January birthdays. The receptionist told me there was Almond Joy coffee creamer. So I tried some. And *sigh* I LIKED it.
Now, I’ve always liked overly-sugared coffees. The ones that taste like chocolate and come with whipped cream. But bitter, dark, mostly unadorned coffee??? What happened???
One more change happening. I’m going to be *cough*forty*cough* this year. And from what I understand, vision starts going around that age. My insurance coverage restarts in May, so I thought I’d go see the eye doctor. Fully expecting him to tell me “Your vision is fine, come back next year.”
I was wrong. My vision isn’t perfect anymore. And when I renew my insurance, I’ll be adding the vision plan.
Coffee and eyeglasses. So what’s changed in your life lately?
