I have the instant karma to get in line right behind the person who is making the office StarBucks run and therefore I have to wait while this person reads of a list of all these drinks with a million and one words in it. No one ever orders just coffee, heaven forbid; it's moca latte this or double latte non fat that and then it's not a large , medium or small, it's a grande or vendti. Oh please, it' s just flipping coffee for crying out loud not the nectar of the gods! By the time I get at the counter to place my order I almost forgot what I wanted, which is always some kind of herbal tea. My current favorite is Refresh, a tasty mint tea.
Then while sipping my tea I notice the writing on my Starbucks cup, their version of the thought of the day. I read these depressing facts about HIV and how many people have it, how many children have it and how many people are dying from it. What a cheery thought to start the day on. So sip your double latte something or herbal tea and have a nice day!
