She was always smiling from the way he made her feel. He was hot, dark and steamy. He made her life have meaning. She couldn’t live without him, and she didn’t want to…. Coffee. He was coffee.
I have the Starbucks app on my phone and every so often, it reminds me that I have messages from the company. Save two bucks after 3:00. We’re offering a new sweet concoction next week. Try our new sandwich. I’m lucky to have some money on my card, so I can easily go to any location and get my drink quickly.
Except I’ve been wanting a fresh Starbucks for about three weeks. I just haven’t had time to hit a store, and I find myself wishing there were more drive-thru locations in my home or work neighborhood.
I appreciate that we have freshly-brewed Starbucks and Coffee Bean coffee at the office. But our office doesn’t provide a barista who will steam my nonfat milk and write an incorrectly-spelled name on my cup.
What’s a girl to do? I think I’ll set the alarm a few minutes early tomorrow and hit a drive-thru a bit out of the way driving to work. I need something hot, dark and steamy in the morning.
