Wrong Cup at the Wrong Time

Tuesday, June 12, 2007
It was just my luck today to run into the owner of our local coffee shop at the neighborhood park with a STARBUCKS beverage in my hand. Not only did I have the beverage of his competitor in my hand, but I was consuming a really uncool drink in the coffee world--an iced venti decaf 4-pump white chocolate mocha with whip. Yep, I was that girl today. WW once made fun of girls who drank the Starbucks caramel machiattos, and having something along those lines when running into the owner of the coffee shop I should have been supporting today was just a bit humiliating! I can't feel too badly, though, because we do give our neighborhood coffee shop quite a lot of support, but still...I was drinking an uncool coffee beverage with a bright green straw from a corporation that opens approximately 6 stores per day. Ahh, c'est ma chance!

A similar thing happens to me almost every time I have to stop by a chain coffee shop--I end up running into my friends that work for the independents and it's everything I can do to not fall over myself explaining what a hard day I'm ALREADY having...

Oh man, today I'd take a cup of anything...

I couldn't survive w/out my daily iced lattes, although I am taking them decaf until I have the baby! I wish one of these coffee vendors did delivery!
