SPOTD: A hot beverage

What Mandy Thinks: "Simple Pleasure of the Day" post
In my twenty-something years of life, coffee and I still do not get along.  No matter what I do with coffee, it is still utterly gross to me.  I'd rather take shots of it just to get the caffeine than slowly enjoy it like a normal person.  Same goes for hot tea.  I don't know what is wrong with me, but I hope my taste buds have not been stunted in growth to "adult" tasting foods and beverages.

This morning was chilly again, and Monday's just suck out loud in general, so I thought I'd treat myself to a warm beverage on the way to the office.  Coffee and tea as mentioned are utterly gross, and my usual iced tea drink is too icy for this particular morning.  That's why I'm a hot chocolate person.  My Simple Pleasure today is this particular hot beverage.

Hot chocolate is superior to other hot beverages and here is why:

- No caffeine, so the only gittery-ness would be from a sugar rush if it's strong enough.  I prefer strong, but asking that to a barista at a coffee shop would probably raise an eyebrow at my strange request so I just order the usual.

- It doesn't stain your teeth or give you crazy breath like coffee and some teas do.

- IT'S LIQUID CHOCOLATE.  Enough said.

To make things even better, the barista called my name for my order and said "Whoops, why did I think you ordered a medium?  Oh well, here ya go."  I ordered a small.  Heck yes extra ounces of hot liquid chocolate for free?

*Fist in the air!*
