Days Without Sugar: Day 34 (again)

I’m over a third of the way to hitting 100; without falling off the wagon @Noel, I’d be almost @110 now.

Notice how even the streetcurb has been thoughtfully (and masterfully!) cleared away!  Later, a snowplow on the street pushed a bunch of snow back up and on 😉

I did end up being treated to a gourmet hot chocolate last night, at a “café” (I assumed) which proved to be a chocolatier.  I balked, trying to avoid being a needy jerk – the staff assured me it was low sugar, made with dark chocolate, and I relented.  Indeed, it was not sweet, at all.  (It was no Suite 88, still the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had).  I felt okay swapping the sign over to Day 35 at bedtime.

I have no ax to grind about soft drinks or Twinkies or whatever; I feel we overall consume them too much, yet they’re still a cool little treat to have.  Coca-Cola is a cultural institution and I like interesting stories about it, and here’s one or three: When Jim Crow Drank Coke (I’m amazed the NAACP has publicly set about opposing NYC’s super-size soda ban).
