Starbucks is being extra grand right now, and giving away free drinks. If you buy a first one, of course, but that’s beside the point!
I made the coffee this morning, and used up every last bit of ground bean. I told Dee, and he said, “So, around 2:00 this afternoon, you’re going to have to drive to Starbucks and buy more coffee beans?”
He laughed and said, “And they say blonds are dumb.”
The buy one/get one free drinks are only from 2:00pm — to 5:00pm, and it was only Thursday through Sunday this week. So yeah, I’m taking my girls out later for a Starbucks date. I have good reasons, guys! Besides the fact that we need coffee, I also need to stop and buy peanut butter before our trip to Massachusetts next week. And Megan has been begging for a date. My poor, neglected girl needs time with her Mommy…
(And no, spending one-on-one time with her at home doesn’t count. She keeps asking to go on a date!)
(I have to take Kirstyn too, because just this morning she sighed and said, “I wish we could buy eggnog lattes every single day.” Me too, girlfriend, me too. I have totally corrupted my children.)
So there, you see? I simply must go to Starbucks this afternoon.
And did you know, that with my VIP gold card status, all of the “modifiers” are free? So when I order a venti peppermint mocha (which I do all year round, not just during the holidays), I get a discount because the syrups and espresso shots are free for me.
Starbucks and I, we’re pretty tight.
