The joke's on me

Last night, I went to the grocery store to pick up a few items and replenish my chai supply. Only, they didn't have my normal chai. THEY HAD DECAF. DECAF CHAI. WTF.

I told myself it wouldn't be so bad. I told myself that caffeine doesn't matter, I drink it for the taste. I told myself that I'd be fine.

It looks normal. It tastes normal. But it's missing that special something.

I was lying.

So as I sit here at work on this Friday, April 1st, chin propped in hand trying desperately to focus a brain cell or two on my job, I think that the joke is finally on me. And it's not funny. Not one bit. Decaf chai is a cruel, cruel joke.

  1. OMG. If I had to suddenly switch to decaf I'm pretty sure I would shrivel up and die. You poor thing. :(

    1. It was not at all amusing. Whoever invented decaf is probably hated by all.

  4. Decaf is a cruel and confusing thing. Get some caffeine into your body - stat!

  5. Decaf is for those evenings when you're craving the taste but still want to get to sleep at a reasonable time. :) Don't go to the HEB by you for regular chai. I bought them out this afternoon. ;-)
