Every so often, I tend to run out of something. The most irritating part is this usually happens after going to the grocery store or the market. I know that I should go through the cupboards before I go to the store, yet inevitably something gets missed.
Today the missing ingredient is Splenda for the coffee. I like my coffee. I like coffee with Splenda and lactose-free milk with unique added ingredients for brain health. Like many others, I find myself a creature of habit and enjoy things the way I like them. And yet, over the years, especially in military service, I have learned that you can start to tolerate anything given time.
I can endure most things for two weeks. In most cases, I will get accustomed to the different taste. Suppose I go a month or more with the different flavors. In that case, my usual preferences will taste odd when I first return to them.
Have you ever had to change things you like because of a new location or a shortage?
