So before I launch in, I’d like to say thanks to all who participated. You are a comment happy bunch and it brought a few chuckles to see your dialogue. And I thought I’d share some of my favorite comments with you.
My absolute favorite season is Spring. And it’s here! Pretty flowers, buzzing bees, happy birds, muddy kids, invigorating sun, BBQ, scrumptious strawberries and gloriously gruntled me.
Thank you Mel for your many contributions and for teaching us all a new word.
I like an Triple Skinny Double Soy Extra Skim April Fools Latte with Extra Double Fat Super Hydrogenated Whip Cream. That’s what I get when I don’t get either a Whole Milk Iced Carmel Macchiato or a Whole Milk Pumkin Spice Latte.
Oh, and I posted a backlink on http://twitter.com/#!/twitrisrubbish
Heh. Heh. For my follower to follow. I don’t actually use twitter, but I *really* wanted to reserve that particular username, so I did.
Wow Eric. I probably could have posted all your comments but want all my friends here to follow your twitter page. Please start enlightening us with your clever thoughts.
Do I chuckle alone?
I wanted to post about Sheryl’s drink, since I very rarely “do” Starbucks, except to buy a drink for Sheryl…which brings me to my story.
I wrote down the ingredients in the drink above (at her suggestion, I might add). So, I wrote it down and walked into Starbucks with my new “list,” where one barista was waiting to take my order and one was ready to make the drink. I took out my “list” and commented, “This drink is pretty long, so I had to write it down.” I got to the “…and 2 pumps of caramel”, when the barista waiting to make the drink yells, “I know that drink! I know that drink!” She finished the “list.” The first barista turned to the second one and said, “That’s the longest drink I have ever heard.” The second turns to the first and says, “You should hear it when she (Sheryl) orders it…she says it really fast!” Turning to me, the second barista says, “Your wife comes in here with three of your five kids, right?” I said yes and had a sneaking suspicion my wife had been there before….oh, that Starbucks culture…:-)
Go Steve. You won the husband award on the blog today. Congrats
my season would be spring… if it existed.
I concur. Strangely enough it’s existing this week. Hurray.
As far as trivia goes, lattes were the choice drink. But I never knew you could have so many variations of a latte. Black tea latte? What is this? Tea with milk? Milk with tea? Can someone enlighten poor confused me?
Heh. That sorta just came out.
Spring won out with one vote over summer. And I’ll have to agree. I adore summer. I like being hot, I love swimming. But there’s something about coming through a Virginia winter and having spring greet you. If indeed it does exist. Sometimes I’m not sure.
And now. The winner. Oh, first I’ll tell you that I did make sure each person only got at most, three entries. But thank you to all those comment happy people, you made it much more interesting.
And now. The winner. heh.
Love your blog! I try new things at Starbucks. I don’t have a favorite. I think it all.
Congrats Heather! And you have to try theventi, half passion, half black, 3 pumps of sweetner, no extra water iced tea!
Thanks to all who entered and looking forward to the next.
