Liz and I went drove through Starbucks last weekend. It’s a real treat when we get to go because there’s not one in our little town. We’ve got two McDonalds, two Subways, a billion churches, and zero coffee shops.
My go-to drink is a caramel macchiato. It’s a coffee drink that tastes like coffee. I like that.
Liz usually gets a peppermint white mocha, which doesn’t taste like coffee at all- more like a hot chocolate/toothpaste mashup.
But now it’s fall, which means she, along with a billion other Americans, is celebrating the return of the fabled pumpkin spice latte.
It’s like a mythical creature, only appearing during certain seasons, for limited times, and it can only be seen by those who believe in magic, or something.
Man, does she love that thing. She tried to name our first son “Pumpkin Spice Hollier.” She’s got a custom license plate that reads P$L4LIFE, and a tattoo of Tweety Bird drinking one.
People love this thing. I’ve tasted it and thought it was pretty heinous. Tastes like pumpkin. And spice. I want my coffee to taste like coffee.
Call me crazy.
Stop that. You know I can’t hear you, right?
Anywho. Question of the day:
What’s your standard order at Starbucks? Be specific. Size, flavor, directions, extras? What’s your drink?
And for funsies, everybody who comments will be entered for a chance to win a Starbucks gift card. HUZZAH!
