Detox: Hello, Old Friend

September 17, 2007

Our cleansing diet officially ended last week, and though we’re surprisingly hesitant to get back to our old eating habits, we did brew a pot of coffee last week (for our guests…). It wasn’t anything too fancy– some Starbucks Breakfast Blend that had been drying out in the back of the cabinet for well over a year. I’m sure the small cup I sipped was flat and acidic, but it tasted so rich and decadent that I could scarcely believe my tongue. It also gave me a huge rush, and I felt like a train clacketing over a rickety trestle. I’ve since switched to decaf, which gives me a buzz, but is more manageable. I can’t believe I used to drink at least two cups a day, and felt nothing.

    Nice imagery! (she says, hoisting a Starbucks bold to her lips.)

    Only two cups? Dude, that’s like pre-10am for me. [[says the guy whose entire corporeal being is currently vibrating insanely from caffeine burnoff--W00t!]]
