A raging headache had me moving slow this am; the silver lining: all of the high school students who crowd my starbucks each morning were safely tucked away in there first period classes by the time I drove on by and I thought to myself when you’re already late you might as well be really late, right?
So in I go and order my usual winter drink…caramel macciatio if you must know. Yes to the whip and to extra caramel this am(remember, I have a headache which equals free ticket to anything…)
I patiently wait with the pre-coffee zombies and then I hear the magic words…tall eggnog latte. What? Eggnog lattes are back? this is too good to be true. I look to the board to make sure my brain is not playing tricks and sure enough there it is as plain as day…
So I march myself right back to the counter and order one, cashier barrista looked at me a little funny as if to say your other drink is almost made, you can’t change now…I assured her I would find a good home for the macciato, just hand over the eggnog latte and no one will get hurt.
As I savor my special treat my headache is drifting away, it’s going to be a good day after all. And since I’ve decided I’ll probably drink both myself, it’s going to be a wired one too…hopefully wired will turn into productive.
