I have three addictions. You guessed it. Coffee, tea and Monster energy Drinks. I didn’t start drinking coffee until about three years ago. I hate the taste of coffee so I was shocked when I was introduced to flavored coffee creamer. Who knew you could take coffee and turn it into something t hat taste good? There are so many flavors to choose from . When I go shopping, I literally stand in front of the dairy case and drool. It’s like going to the ice cream store and trying to choose a flavor. It’s like drinking hot liquid ice cream. How many people like chocolate coffee? Me! I love chocolate anything. The creamer even taste good by itself and yes I know because I have tried it.
I love sweet tea. I really became hooked when I went down south to visit my sister. Everywhere we went we had sweet tea. When I came home it didn’t taste as good. I found the next best thing. Red Diamond! I go through phases when I will drink sweet tea, then I go for a long period without it. When I hear the song “Good Directions”, by Billy Currington, he talks about Miss Bell’s sweet tea , I immediately have a craving for sweet tea and run out and get a jug of Red Diamond Sweet Tea. Next time I go down south I am going to track Miss Bell down and have some of her famous sweet tea.
I am a Monster addict. I used to drink two a day but have cut back to about three or four a week. What really irritates me is go into a store to buy one and getting a lecture about how bad they are for me by a well-meaning chain smoking cashier. I appreciate your concern for my health but practice what you preach and leave me in peace to enjoy my Monster. Which is probably doing significant damage to my heart and I am sure someday I will regret it but today I just need to stay awake for the remainder of my shift.
I used to have a home day care and worked 18 hour days. One day feeling extremely tired, I called one of the day care parents that was due to pick up her children soon and asked if she could pick me up a Monster Rehab on her way. (Monster Rehab is Monster and tea.) Her response was, “Paula, you need Monster Rehab.”
