However, I've noticed something since raving about this drink.
There are people with a very serious genetic anomaly I wasn't aware of before now. It's frightening for the families of those affected, I'm sure.
These people suffer from Earl Grey Aversion Disorder Syndrome - or EGADS for short.
EGADS!! How can you not like Earl Grey?? Well, aside from a genetic disorder, that is...
I questioned my sister on the subject, as she suffers from EGADS, and she claims that it's the bergamot.
No one's ever heard of bergamot or would be able to identify it in a tastebud lineup. That is just a person in denial about EGADS.
I posed this question to my barista this morning -I said, "Barista, what is wrong with people who don't like Earl Grey?" And she made a very wise observation. She said "You know - it's like those MIRACLE WHIP people." And I think I saw an eyeroll.
She's right you know. Miracle Whip is only enjoyed by a small group of people with a similar genetic defect. Normal people eat mayonnaise, you know. And drink Earl Grey tea.
These are the things that divide our nation!
How will we achieve world peace with imaginary bergamot and Miracle Whip keeping us apart??
While I ponder that, I'm going to have a London Fog and keep calm and carry on.
Keep your chin up and try to have empathy for those with EGADS and Miracle Whip Affinity Disorder.
I'm sure Bono will get all over these causes soon.
