Yum. Sigh.

I really want a pearl milk tea. The caffeine content would make Swimmy do backflips so I'm abstaining. I'm having a little sense of what it's like for pregnant women who miss their daily coffee, evening glass of red wine, spicy tuna rolls, a cigarette break, crack coc@ine. I indulge in none of those things, so I'm lucky – there isn't that much for me to miss. Except a pearl milk tea. Maybe just a few sips?

In other news, my team successfully committed my project into the next phase. It's been a huge amount of work, and I'm looking forward to a few calmer days. I like the study in contrasts – one day at the supermarket, rejecting a can of soup because it's not on sale, yet the next day at work, deciding whether a return on investment of hundreds of millions of dollars is enough to pursue the product. It's good practice in shifting perspective as a parent.

If it makes you feel any better about not having a bubble drink...
I grew up in Montana, and had my first bubble drink when I moved to Hawaii. I just about gagged on the tapioca because they are the exact size shape and texture (I'm guessing...) of deer turds...
I couldn't go near one after the first shock... bubble drinks..yuck!

For some reason I think we may frequent the same boba place (verde?) and I can definitely sympathize! Maybe you can try one of their juice or smoothie ones to get your fix - although milk tea is still the best!
