“I breathe in slowly. Food is life. I exhale, take another breath. Food is life. And that’s the problem. When you’re alive, people can hurt you. It’s easier to crawl into a bone cage or a snowdrift of confusion. It’s easier to lock everybody out.
But it’s a lie.”—wintergirls, pg 275 (via myredballoon)
Today I bought some VIA ready-brew coffee from Starbucks. Mocha flavored. I was under the sad disillusionment that “mocha flavored” meant that the coffee was going to taste like a mocha. I was quite wrong. It just tasted like coffee with sugar in it, and a hint of chocolate. I’m not big on coffee flavor; I like it to be balanced with an equal amount of chocolate flavoring. This was like 75% coffee, 25% chocolate, and it just wasn’t working for me.
Needless to say, I was looking forward to that. And I am now caffeine-less. And mocha-less. If Starbucks wasn’t so expensive, I’d be going there and getting a grande nonfat mocha right this moment. But it costs four dollars, and I’m not ready to pay that. Even if their whipped cream is to die for.
