I’m a high maintenance order-er at establishments of food or drink.
can’t won’t read menus (bad eye sight, shrot attention span, too many distractions)
I have strong preferences
and dietary needs.
But thanks to a kind barrista back in 2007, who spent a lot of time and effort on me, I DO know what I want at starbucks, every time:
SOY chai latte
half pump carmel
half pump mocha
which on a cup, looks like this:
All that writing makes me feel like I’ve just gotten a love poem. See, a love poem just for me. And it’s so perfect. How did they know? ;)
In other news, i don’t know quite why this PICTURE of my coffee is bigger than my actual coffee. But I do want to share this little how-do-ya-do:
This is an EXPENSIVE drink. You pay extra for the shots, the soy, and depending on the store (seriously) the whip. Which makes this drink between $4.50 and just over $5.
UNLESS you pay with a REGISTERED stabucks gift card. (I’m still using a card from Christmas that I just reload. It’s super easy to register, just go online and type in the number!)
Then, this drink is an easy $2.85 and a treat I don’t mind giving myself once every few weeks.
