A raging headache had me moving slow this am; the silver lining: all of the high school students who crowd my starbucks each morning were safely tucked away in there first period classes by the time I drove on by and I thought to myself when you're already late you might as well be really late, right?

So in I go and order my usual winter drink...caramel macciatio if you must know. Yes to the whip and to extra caramel this am(remember, I have a headache which equals free ticket to anything...)

I patiently wait with the pre-coffee zombies and then I hear the magic words...tall eggnog latte. What? Eggnog lattes are back? this is too good to be true. I look to the board to make sure my brain is not playing tricks and sure enough there it is as plain as day...

So I march myself right back to the counter and order one, cashier barrista looked at me a little funny as if to say your other drink is almost made, you can't change now...I assured her I would find a good home for the macciato, just hand over the eggnog latte and no one will get hurt.

As I savor my special treat my headache is drifting away, it's going to be a good day after all. And since I've decided I'll probably drink both myself, it's going to be a wired one too...hopefully wired will turn into productive.


  1. Sounds like the perfect way to get your morning back on track!!!

  2. Of course you should drink BOTH of them, but then again, I don't live too far from your office :)

  3. i'm mad at buckies, they messed up my gingerbread latte - it's called ginger snap now and it's gross. my december/january has been ruined. pout!
