Ramblings over cuppa

Milk blend occasionally. Black tea on Shatabdi rides. Green tea and iced tea almost regularly.
Remember how I used to be anti-tea. That changed when I moved to this new office.
An occasional cuppa now and then.
Distasteful. This hot beverage.
Quite unlike coffee.
Nothing beats a hot vanilla cappuccino.
Peculiar that I should be rambling about this, estranged as we are now.
And not that it really matters.
But I had to share my heart with you.
Over a cup of coffee.
Just like old times.
Peculiar too, that times never return.
And flow of life is almost ceaseless.

  2. Like you, I am an avid coffee drinker. As a matter of fact, I filled up my cuppa before starting this comment. I do enjoy a nice cup of tea at certain times. Coffee, though, satisfies the addiction. So fun to "see" you again, Ruby!

  3. Coffee and I are BFF's. I've tried to love hot tea but coffee always wins. Although iced tea is one of my favorite cold drinks. Love this piece!

  4. That was really quite touching, my own coffee allegiance be damned.

  5. But flow of life IS ceaseless, what with moments passing. I found this intriguing because I can imagine a non-coffee drinker thinking coffee is distasteful, but tea seems so much more benign. Who could find tea distasteful? Hmmmm.

    1. Thank you for picking up the last line.
      As for tea/coffee, let's say to each his own cuppa ;)

  6. I agree with Marian, Ruby.....I think the closing line makes this piece. As for me, I have tea in my veins. I cuppa hot is always my number one drink! Good to read your good work again. It has been too long.

  7. I cannot have any caffeine for the next month, and your piece made me miss coffee AND tea!

    1. No caffeine ... Good luck with that.
      I don't think I could survive month without coffee.
      But trust me, a month will be like flicker and in no time you can relish your teas and coffees

  9. I liked the stream of consciousness this had. As if I was sitting across from you, fingers linked though the rung of the mugs.

    1. That was the way I imagined it all when I wrote. I am glad the feelings came across right.

  10. Tea should be exclusively a backup drink. Coffee's the way to go. Having said that, I really enjoyed the piece!

  12. There's nothing better than that first cup of coffee in the morning!

  13. Just replace coffee and tea with rum, and rum, and we'll talk.
    Fun spin on the 100-words!

    1. I am a total abstainer Joe :) So, may be we could talk over rum (for you) and coffee (for me), what say?

  14. It's decaff for me. But you can't beat a cuppa. Enjoyed. Ally

  15. I will join you with the coffee. Though I do also enjoy a good peppermint tea now and then.
    Yes that last line is perfection.

    1. Thank you Renee. That line is a personal favorite for me too. Thank you for picking it up. Do join me for coffee, though you are second to recommend peppermint tea so it becomes a must try.
