Kelly Gets Historical

In the novel John Adams, I learned two things about college in the 18th century: for one, the food at Harvard was awful. Guess the universal rule of "All Food At College Must Suck" was applicable back in Johnny's day too. The second, that Mr. Adams, as well as all of his buddies, were quite the advocates of hard cider.

"Indeed, for the rest of his life, a morning "gill" of hard cider was to be John Adam's preferred drink before breakfast." - pg. 36

Damn. Cider - an antecedent breakfast drink?! And I thought I was bad ass one day for having a pint of it at lunch...
