I’ll have the usual…

Hello everybody! Sorry I’ve been absent. Not that much crazy stuff has happened (well, that’s not necessarily true, but I there are some things that are just weird with no entertainment value.)

This post is something that my other blog audience loved: I took 10 minutes and made a list of all the drinks I start making as soon as I see their people walk in the door. So don’t fault your barista if she asks you 3 times if you want whipped cream. We’ve got a lot on our minds. 🙂 Enjoy!

* skim white mocha no whip

* medium decaf coffee

* triple medium breve

* double dark shot-in-the-dark

* large dark and a chocolate chip muffin

* medium mocha and bagel with butter

* a mocha frappuccino and a orangesicle smoothie. At 6:35 in the morning.

* large house blend

* two small lattes with whatever milk I have on hand (although last time it was a small and a medium, and that really screwed me up for a little bit)

* large house lots of room for cream

* chai breve extra hot

* medium latte around 135 degrees.

* orange juice

* Pepsi (then diet Pepsi when he gave up sweets, then water when he gave up pop for lent)

* triple iced vanilla americano

* triple iced vanilla latte with soy

* medium house with sugar-free raspberry (also in a travel mug)

* medium mocha 2% no whip and a cinnamon crumb cake

* small house (actually there are about four of those)

* small dark

* small dark (the nephew of the other small dark)

* as many cinnamon muffins as we have

* medium coffee with one shot of espresso

* double shot of espresso

* double shot of espresso, iced tea with one pump blackberry and two pumps raspberry, and a biscotti.

* vanilla chai skim extra hot

* small coffee in a ceramic cup

* varietal iced tea

* small decaf lots of room

* medium coffee in a ceramic cup with a bagel and cream cheese

* small coffee, a pastry, and a toasted bagel with cream cheese and jelly.

…and you’re probably as sick of this as I am!

Welcome to the mind of a barista. This is why she forgets if you want whipped cream or not.

I’m thankful for…

My job makes me thankful for things that I used to take for granted. Here are a few:


*My school bus picked me up at my house. And it was a good school district so I didn’t have to travel far.

*I have a shower and a bathroom at my house and I never have to ask if I can use the key.

*I can afford more than coffee for lunch.

*My husband is loving- I have never had to borrow a phone to call the police because I’m scared for my safety.

*I have never had to get businesses to sign a form saying that I asked for a job application.

*My parents taught me manners.

*Whenever I swipe my card there is money on it.

*My boss doesn’t make me buy him asinine drinks every single day and call him if they’re out of his favorite pastries.

*I don’t have to wear a uniform or apron.

*I am only addicted to coffee.

*I don’t work the night shift.

*Not only do I have a job, it’s a job that I love.


Happy Thanksgiving, blog-o-sphere!
