[Day 72] A memory in place of a nicety

I used to think I was pretty hot stuff. Well, let’s face it, I am hot stuff. But in a different way then I thought I was when I was twelve.

But I really want to like tea. It is the coffee of sophisticated people! In pursuit of my imagined intellectual image, today, instead of my normal hot chocolate, I filled up my travel mug with Earl Gray tea. Continue reading “[Day 15] I’m over getting older”
