My Starbucks order...
There are occasionally mornings where our maintenance dude isn't here. And since he is The Maker of The Coffee, when I remember to, I pick up coffee at Starbucks on those mornings so I don't die from lack of morning caffeine.
It could happen.
Well, in the beginning when I was under The Starbuck's Awesomeness Powers, I would order a White Chocolate Mocha or a Caramel Macchiato or during the holidays a Pumpkin Spice Latte. And those are like five bucks a pop.
So now I usually order a house coffee.
Because it's like half the price.
Unless it's the middle of a summer day and a hundred and two degrees outside. Then I order a Java Chip Frappuccino. Which I've just learned has six hundred calories. Damn you Starbucks.
Anyway, today when I pulled up to the little box to order my coffee, I said the same thing I always say, "Can I get a venti house with two raw sugars, toffee syrup and a ridiculous amount of cream?"
*peers into crowd* Lola? Is that you?
*ahem*, "I mean a ridiculous amount of non-fat milk"
But this time, instead of just chuckling at me, this guy redid my order.
He is apparently a Connoisseur of The Coffee.
A fixer of messed up orders.
A straightener-outer of confused customers.
First, he repeated back to me exactly what I had ordered with air quotes on "ridiculous amount of cream" so prominent that I could hear them through the speaker. When I laughed and said yes, he revised my order.
"So, what you really want is a grande house in a venti cup with two raw sugars, toffee syrup and the rest cream?"
That is exactly what I want.
You, Starbucks Man, are amazing.
All of these years that I have been sporadically coming in for coffee on the days when my maintenance man is absent and I didn't even know what I wanted. But now, now I know.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
