I have another obsession which, at times, becomes expensive and ridiculous to some. Coffee. In all forms: hot, iced, caffeinated, decaffeinated, with whole milk, non-fat milk, soy. Be it a regular cup of coffee, a latte, a capuccino from Starbucks or the multitude of other coffee chains…. or a lovely cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee (no sugar please!) It’s all a good thing.
I get downright grumpy if I pass thru a drivethru for coffee and it’s not made by my specifications. I guess I am a coffee snob. If I mistakenly get sugar in my coffee, I will go out of my way to return it and drive out of my way for a replacement cup. When I need to budget on occasion, I will go without anything to keep my coffee. I just ordered 3 lbs. of beans from Peets a couple days ago, and I am anxiously awaiting the Fedex man to bring my fix for the weekend. Hubby likes coffee too (not to the extent that I do), but he indulges my habit by driving me to various coffee places when we are bored. He’s a sweetie isn’t he? David even drinks his juice from a Starbucks mug, he calls it his “coffee”, just like Mommy drinks. Am I creating a future coffee connoisseur?
