Ready, Aim, ???

Ready, Aim, FireReady, Fire, AimReady, Aim, (nothing) Which one are you? I know people in each of these categories (that I just made up) – I’m sure you do as well.

The Perfect Chai Latte

Since I unexpectedly gave up coffee a year or so ago (unplanned result of a 26-day cleanse), I have become fairly well-versed in tea.
