Giving up Chai

i’m trying to give up the Chai
– well, really it’s more all the milk –
the spice of the cinnamon topping
– the feel of sweet liquid brown silk –

i’m trying to give up the Chai
– i started cold turkey today –
I haven’t missed it as yet
– but tomorrow’s another day –

i’m trying to give up the Chai
– three lattes a day was excessive –
I don’t know what I’ll drink now
– my cravings might be quite expressive –

i’m trying to give up the Chai
– when I don’t like giving things up –
I like a hot drink and time to think
– so deprivation might be kinda rough –

      No, I’m not fond of almond anything (except the actual nuts sometimes). Maybe I will have to try it.

        I use it and can’t detect an almond flavoring to anything I put it in. Which seems odd, now that I think about it, but there it is.

    I am devastated by this news, as I was JUST speaking to the International Procurer on the Bonnywood staff about arranging for you to have a lifetime supply of Chai. I’ll update the order with a cease and desist… πŸ˜‰

      Oh, you are so thoughtful. I am tempted by a lifetime supply of Chai, hoever it doesn’t go well unless there is a lifetime supply of milk-that-doesn;t-make-you-put-on-a-gazillion-kilos> Can you get me some of that? I’ll be right over if you can.
