I am out of tea. I'm sitting here waiting for inspiration to strike, and all I can think is, "Man, there is nothing I'd like more right now than a glass of tea!" Okay, you can call me a caffeine addict, and you may be partially right. But just now, even a tall, cold glass of decaf sounds pretty good. I don't think it's the caffeine - I think it's the fact that, well, I can't have it. At least not until tomorrow when I can get out and make a grocery run.
Tell me I won't be able to have a fried egg until tomorrow, and I'm fine. No time to start cleaning those nasty kitchen cabinets today? So not a problem. No chocolate in the house? Well, that's okay, at least for now (but I'd better make sure I have some on hand before next week!) Today, I want TEA.
Which has started me thinking...Why is it that not being able to have something we want often makes us desire it even more? What's one thing you crave madly when it isn't available?
