17. My Addiction
If you know me in real life, you know I looooooooooove sweet tea. It IS the House Wine of the South! In college, I went through a pitcher a day; I have gotten a bit better, not to mention that I have cut back on the amount of sugar I use in it at home (from a cup to around a half of a cup) as well as doing half-sweet and half-unsweetened when I'm at a soda fountain. The only time I drink the truly sweet tea is when I'm at a restaurant or we are on the road, and I feel it is inconsiderate to request half and half. All I can say is "THANK GOD FOR MICKY D'S!" when we travel North; I don't know what I would do without it. :) Sweet tea is how I start my day--I know, I know, most people go for coffee or at least hot tea, but I like the sweet tea, no ice, cold from the fridge.
