What are you drinking this morning?

We’ve covered this topic in one form or another various times throughout the Ping’s lifetime, but what beverage are you consuming this morning?

Today’s the first day of Summer (isn’t it?) — does your drink of choice differ at all from what it would be during the winter?

I’m drinking a fine Chinese green tea this morning sent to me oh so kindly by Pinger aharris and her significant other. Though some people won’t drink hot beverages during the summertime, the way I figure it, if you drink cold water during the winter, why not hot tea during the summer? Coffee drinkers will surely understand.

Same thing I drink every morning, a glass of OJ to wash down the fish oil pills, and a large coffee in one of my 3 coffee mugs. They stoppped sending them to me, I guess I'm not buying enough these days.

My first drink of the morning is, almost always, coffee. But when I'm at work, water rules the day.

Diet Pepsi, of course, when I get to work (4:30). Then super-strong black coffee at 8:15 because my client gets upset if I refuse his coffee.

I had an iced espresso today, which is usual for me. The client I was visiting is a restaurant and it was offered. Usually, I stick to water.

Doh! Sorry, that was to be UNUSUAL above. Please feel free to edit that and delete this. Thanks!

I started drinking water with my savory breakfasts a while ago. I just needed to get the sugar out of my mornings. Wish I liked coffee.

I stop at the corner store on the way to work every morning and pick up a 20 oz. Moutain Dew. That's usually the first thing I drink in the morning. I have an hour commute so I need something to keep me alert. Not a coffee drinker.

Water. Used to have water and coffee, but coffee is really bitter on an empty stomach, so I went back to just water.

Besides, I can make water in the morning, even though I am rarely coherent during the first hour after awakening. Tea just sounds horrifically complicated.

I have a can of stella in the morning or a few shots of jack daniels to start my day

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
