"The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not." - Mark Twain

There are some things in life you just cannot live without. Sometimes you wish these irreplaceable things had never been introduced to you, but then you would never have experienced their genuine bliss. Trying to suppress the yearning for these necessities is pointless because the attraction towards them is too strong. I suffer under the spell of such an addiction.

Sweet tea.
There is nothing more refreshing, energizing, and delicious than a tall glass of ice-cold sweet tea. As someone born and raised in the South, I have been drinking this liquid gold since I was very young. Whenever I go out to eat I always order sweet tea, and when I am visiting my relatives in Connecticut it is always a disappointment when restaurants in the North only offer un sweet tea. Pouring sugar packets into cold tea and stirring the glass violently to attempt to get the sugar to dissolve is quite a hassle.
Last year when I was deciding what college to attend I narrowed my choices down to Boston University or the University of Georgia. Now that I am attending UGA and eating in their dining halls (which thankfully, have sweet tea) I am very glad that I chose to attend a school in the South that values good beverages and offers sweet tea in all of its dining facilities.
If you have never experienced the rush from drinking a glass of this sweet nectar, drive to McDonalds and pay $1.06 for a large sweet tea. I guarantee your mind will also be allured to never go without this heavenly juice.
