Snob Appeal

Is there anything you are a snob about?

I suppose someone who has never used a fountain pen would assume I’m a snob about writing instruments, but I’m not. I love all things stationery and yes, I do own some rather high end pens, but it’s not because I’m trying to show off – I have many pens that cost under $10 that I use every day. I simply love the smooth unparalleled writing experience you have with a fountain pen  and fine paper, as the physical act of writing is one of my favorite hobbies. I have to say the only thing I’m an abject snob about is hot chocolate. I will never, under any circumstances, drink it when it’s made of water. I mean, really what is that? Chalky mudwater? I prefer higher quality chocolate and use a Ghirardelli mix at home, but when I am out, the only place I’ll buy hot chocolate is Starbucks. It has just the right amount of sugar without being too sweet; I never use sugar in my coffee so I don’t like hot chocolate that tastes like I’m mainlining sugar. I prefer a semisweet chocolate in my hot chocolate, which is why I NEVER drink Swiss Miss. Call me a snob, but I know what I like.
