Starbucks: Love.

Okay, small coffeeshops, blah blah, Starbucks burns their coffee beans, blah blah. I get it. But they have this amazing DEAL happening. (And Starbucks almost NEVER has deals.)

You're going to Starbucks. You're getting your fancy latte. And then the nice lady behind the counter informs you that you can get a free flavor and milk option on your fancy latte. Yes, you can have all flavors and milk options FOR FREE. If you buy a Starbucks card. And THEN, if you go register said Starbucks card, and you buy coffee with it from now on, you'll ALWAYS get free flavors and milk options, FOREVER.

My soy cinnamon dolce latte cost me 3.34. I can't remember the last time any drink at Starbucks has cost me less than five dollars. I can't believe they are doing this, and as a side note, they've gone back to their classic brown siren cups, with the totally sexy 70's siren, and what I am trying to say is that Starbucks has totally gone off its meds and you must take advantage of them, right now.

Lately, my barista boy has taken to giving me free stuff. A free latte one day, a free extra shot another. I wonder if he's trying, in his dorky emo way, to flirt with me?

I wonder if I should point out the wedding band that adorns my left hand. And that I'd never leave my awesome, financially secure husband for a 20-something hipster who slings coffee for a living.

Then again, maybe not. He can dream. And I can enjoy free coffee.
