"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Liquid Loves

This post is part of Patty Wysong's
   A to Z meme. This week's letter is "L."
 A to Z blog hop at Patterings.
I had a bunch of WONDERFUL words I was considering for my L post.

Love
Laughter
Light
Los Angeles (where I was born and raised!)

But the ideas for them just weren't coming. So, my topic for today is a bit less inspiring and earth-shattering. But still fun (I hope!).

I don't drink as much as I should. MANY have told me this. I don't ever recall being completely dehydrated, but I know more liquid consumption would be VERY good for me (and now I think I'll take a quick break to go fill a cup with water. I MIGHT have it empty in a few hours. If I remember).

Okay - I'm back. Took my first sip of water of the day (not counting the one I took with my multivitamin before it got light).

I'm not much of a pop/soda/coke drinker. I'm not terribly fond of the taste of several of these beverages, and, well, the carbonation affects me more than most (I've been called a gaseous anomaly in the past :::blush::: ). There are a few (root beer, ginger ale - that's all that's coming to mind) that I'll drink in a pinch, but generally, it's not on my list. Not a fan of coffee either.

My favorite liquid is milk (or leche, for my Spanish-speaking and "L"-conscious friends). Skim. Low fat is okay too - just don't give me whole. I would gladly drink it for just about every meal. Yummy! (In fact, I have a glass of milk with my Bible reading each morning - that picture on my blog header is NOT a mistake!).

But, if I'm eating out, milk is, in general, expensive - and you don't get free refills on it! So, as far as ordering drinks, my go-to liquid is lemonade. Regular, Pink. Raspberry. Strawberry. You name it, I enjoy it. Love me my lemonade. Not as much as milk - but still.

And if they don't have lemonade (or I'm just not in the mood)? Ice water.

  1. Wow. Just thinking about all the liquid I consume in a day. Can't imagine NOT drinking iced tea with every meal or two cups of coffee in the morning. :)

    1. Good for you! Not crazy about iced tea either - but if I HAVE to... :)

  2. I start every day with coffee. Not a lot... maybe six cups or so. If it's cold, a bit more. :) Later in the day, it's either Diet Coke or Diet Dr Pepper. Water sometimes if I'm doing yardwork and it's especially hot. Oh, and the occasional unsweetened iced tea too!

  3. LOL. Um. I'm not a big milk drinker anymore, but I used to start my day with a cold cup every morning. I miss it:) I do work very hard to drink my water every day. I have my water bottle around and just keep sipping. But my favorite--I don't get it often--is an ice cold Coke from McD's. Their Cokes are the best. Period.

    1. It's certainly a battle to drink what you need to - I admire your tenacity! I certainly don't have it.

    1. I've always said that coffee is an acquired taste that I have chosen NOT to acquire :)

  6. Being from the South, sweet tea is my favorite. I love hot tea as well. I've found an ice mocha at the grocery store that's not expensive, so I drink that too. When I went on one of the 100 diets I've been on in my life, the key was to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. It did work, but I felt like I sloshed when I walked.

    1. If I drank enough to slosh when I walked, it would be a miracle LOL.

  7. Water is my go to with juice in the morning. No milk for me unless it's chocolate or in my cereal. And my once a week splurge is Cherry or Vanilla coke. Mmm! Why once a week? Well, coke makes me break out. Sigh. I guess some things from adolescence never die.

    1. Poor thing - does it happen the same if it's diet? Maybe you don't like the taste as well. Breaking out is NO fun - I did until I was in my late 20's I think, then I stopped. Hoping you don't have much longer of it :) And thanks for stopping by!

  8. Water. Throughout the day!! (hint, hint)
    My choice of serious drinks: grape koolaid. I call it the hard stuff. My kids refer to it as my elixir of life. ...if that gives you any idea on my thoughts on it. LoL. And woe to the child who empties my jug or leaves me only a swallow. hehehehehe.
