My inability to stir stems from a trait to move on from things which do not stick around. What I ought to realize is that sugar does not dissolve at a first go, and it takes patience to make your drink sweeter. It's a thin line to toe, for once the drink has been sipped, the mug needs to be washed clean. It's tempting to hold on to it, once you get into the stirring habit. The warmth never really leaves it.
