Sometime last weekend, during the Potter Party, the following conversation occurred.
Me: Mints? *opens a can of mint candy and passes it around*
Raven: How come you always seem to have mints on you?
Dude: *looks like he just had an epiphany* So that’s why you’re called Mintea!
I’ve been asked multiple times, why does my online handle sound a lot like mint tea or minty?
The simple reason, is that I like mints.
When I started out this blog after abandoning my livejournal, I wanted a fresh start. This included a new online handle.
It was difficult to decided what to call myself and then I thought, screw it. I’ll just pick what I like, like mints and tea. So… Mintea!
And so, that name stuck. It’s been five years since then and I’m not looking to changing it again.
So that’s my story.
