My Downfall

I’ve only been in Tennessee for a few weeks, but I can already tell that one thing in particular will be my downfall – a nearly irresistible temptation and a wonderful libation: sweet tea.

It’s not that it couldn’t be found in Texas, it just couldn’t be found everywhere.  On occasion, in Texas, I would think, “Oh, yeah.  I’m at a place that serves sweet tea!”  But now, I have that thought any time I go anywhere, whether it’s small group, a church function, or a restaurant.  I’m surrounded by the sugary goodness, and it’s very hard for me to resist.

I have it in good authority that the over indulgence of this elixir can have a negative affect on one’s waistline, so I’m treading lightly.  But still… I think it may be a struggle.

  1. Just mix garlic cloves with your sweet tea and you won’t have to worry at all about that waste line. The only thing on your mind will be, “why do I listen to that brother-in-law?”
    All the best

  2. Kyle… BEWARE…. back up now and do NOT get sucked in. I gained.. well, the amount is not the point – it was a lot because of this delightful stuff! I have since given it up — it’s the only way to survive!

  3. Ben & Lan, thanks for the advice! I started by aiming for moderation, but the definition of moderation keeps on increasing!
