In my desperation for Diet Coke, I almost forgot about the fact that I also gave up coffee for Lent. And tea. And juices of all sorts. And anything else that wasn't water.
And it didn't even occur to me to reward myself with a latte until today. But I can tell you with absolute certainty that this afternoon's latte was one of the best I've ever had. :)
(For those of you who, like me, don't speak Starbucks, that's a tall, non-fat, sugar-free peppermint mocha latte with extra peppermint. Which is not to be confused with a tall, non-fat, sugar-free white chocolate mocha latte, which doesn't exist because Starbucks is full of idiots who don't realize how delicious/marketable a sugar-free white chocolate mocha latte would be. But I digress...)
