Sweet Tea...My Secret Love Affair SOL #24

I am joining the Two Writing Teachers in the March Slice of Life Challenge (most days!).

I am an iced tea drinker.  There is always a pitcher in our refrigerator, no matter what time of year it is.  It's not unusual to see me with a McDonald's styrofoam cup in hand (or on my desk in my office) filled with unsweet tea.  Yes, unsweet tea.  I don't drink my calories.

That is until I come to the south.  I began the trip keeping true to my unsweet tea.  Everywhere we went, I ordered my tea the usual way...unsweet.  Then after a few days crossing the Georgia line, I relented...half unsweet, half sweet.  Oh, it was so good.  I kept to the half and half for two days and then this morning, I caved.

"I'll have the sweet tea," I told the waitress as she took my order today.  And the rest is history.  Every. single. meal.  Sweet Tea please.

I'll be heading home on Sunday. I'll hop back on the wagon then.  For now, I'll follow my heart and order that sweet tea.


  1. I totally fall off the wagon when I visit my father in law in South Carolina. I had never had a true Sweet Tea until we went to his house for the first time in 2011. One sweet tea and I was hooked! I totally get the addiction.

  2. I'm in South Carolina right now visiting my parents, and I know exactly what you mean! I, too, love iced tea, but I've stuck with my unsweet...for now!

  3. When in the South, do as the Southerners do. Enjoy!:-) Sometimes you just have to have the real deal.

  4. I am a big iced tea drinker...I typically love my tea unsweetened, but when I visited North Carolina, I was hooked on their sweet tea! So delish!!

  5. Dude...nothing beats a glass of sweet tea!! Indulge!! :)

  6. This is so funny - oh dear me, you tried really hard to stay true to your unsweetened. You might have a hard time when you get home.

  7. Your slice made me smile.
    Where I live it is always sweet tea. I remember my first trip to Florida when I was 21...went to a restaurant and ordered iced tea. It was not sweet! I was shocked! :0)
