Was it the Cinnamon Rolls, Iced Tea, or Both?

I have a very good friend who stops in about once a week to visit. We have been friends since our boys were 6 years old and joined the Youth Wrestling Team. They were about the same size and became not only wrestling partners but good friends. They're
now 21 years old and still look each other up when they're home on breaks from college. It only made sense that their Mom's would also become friends. We spent many hours over the next 12 years sitting in bleachers (both Dad's were asst. coaches), being the
Ultimate Wrestling Mom - there's no other mom quite like a Wrestling Mom. Matt was one weight class below my Steve, so I'd videotape him so she could shake, scream and feel sick to her stomach; then she'd tape Steve so I could do the same. We laughed how
I only ever watched her son wrestle in black and white thru a viewfinder and she got to watch Steve in color thru our viewfinder - we had a newer videocamera. They were both good wrestlers - qualifying for the state tournament several times and then moved
on to Middle School wrestling - being undefeated and league champions. Then my son broke his back in 9th grade football and that ended his wrestling days. Matt continued on thru high school and we never missed a match. Tawnia would come to Steve's baseball
games. We'd wonder if we would remain friends after their graduation. We needn't have worried.
Today was one of those days. She usually stops by my house on her way home from work, but if it's a really hot day I go to hers - she has a beautiful pool. No matter where we are we always have some sort of snack and either iced tea in summer or hot tea in
winter. Then we get to the job of catching up - we can gab for hours non-stop and still hate to see our time come to an end. Today our gab-session lasted 3 hours.
My husband was out of town last night so I decided to make these
Cinnamon Rolls - I had never made homemade cinnamon rolls before. I will be making them again! Whew! Delicious - and easy! I topped them off with an almond glaze so they were sweet. As we sat on the porch in the shade gabbing away and munching on cinnamon
rolls while sipping iced tea - we both noticed our mouths were going a mile a minute! Was it sugar overload, too much caffeine, or just two long-time friends with a lot to say?
