a dark and fulsome brew

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry
So, there are some things in the office kitchenette that are freely availaible, among them tea, coffee and hot chocolate. It was probably inevitable that people would try to combine things.

Someone once said that we should embrace fusion, and I do like to try new things.  That's why, although I don't drink coffee as a general rule, I tried it, some time ago, with hot chocolate stirred in.  It was powerful, but tasted good.  Uh, I'm keeping the ratio I used under wraps - mostly to avoid freaking anyone.

However, I'm still trying to avoid sugar, or at least keep my intake lower, so when I had an urge for sweetness while in the kitchen, and I saw that they now have the Swiss Miss No Sugar Added WITH Mini Marshmallows, it became clear what I needed to do.

There's a cup on my desk.  

There's a substance in that cup.  It is a chocolatey brown - the marshmallows revolted early, in a very unmallowlike way - but it's not a HAPPY chocolate.  From chocolate such as this, you could only make brooding, violent, Halloween-Bun-Bun-esque chocolate easter bunnies - bite the head off at your own risk. 

The substance is angry, I think.  It looks angry, it smells angry, it tastes angry.

I have a sense that there's something I'm supposed to be doing here - like chanting, or making arcane gestures, or maybe making a circle around it out of packets of salt.

I think that when I pour it down the drain, it has a serious chance of becoming an independent life form - kind of like the thing that killed Tasha Yar.

No more experiments for me for a while, I think.  The main result of this one is that now I know I am still waiting for someone to invent a sugar replacement that doesn't turn evil when you apply heat.
