the decaf life

it's been just over two weeks since my last caffeinated beverage. once the headaches ended (about 3 days in--the first two were the worst), i've felt better and slept better. i am very grateful for caffeine free versions of diet dp and diet coke. diet cherry 7up is a new favorite.

and even though i get pitying looks from the baristas at starbucks, i can order my decaf, sugar-free vanilla, non-fat latte with a smile.

I always get a kick out of it ... I help sometimes at my mom's coffee shop and people will look apologetic or embarrassed to order a decaf espresso drink. Sometimes they'll joke and ask what the point of it is ... but it's all about the flavor! Just because you don't want the caffiene doesn't mean you shouldn't get to enjoy a good latte. I'm just sayin'. I'll have to bring you some decaf coffee in PA - it's our own special blend, roasted right here in Boothbay. : )
