No More Coffee Stains

Because I'm trying to cut down expenses, I started drinking tea again. No wonder coffee is so popular here, it's an insidious drug that reels you in and never lets go. I am experiencing migraines like I've never had before.

But tea is good, as Dr. Zhou keeps telling me. It's anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, anti-everything. I could just feel the free radicals melting away as the green leaves unfurl in the hot water.

I'm understanding why tea is always served in Chinese restaurants, it cuts down the grease in the dishes. Even after I've had some fatty nourishment, soon after a cup of tea, my stomach rumbles again. Could it be a good accompaniment to low-fat dieting? That's alright, am on the immigrant diet, as long as I'm living in someone's basement and eating ramen noodles, figure-maintainece is the last thing I should worry about.
