Did I mention I’m not staying at my home for a few months? I’m not. I’m living it up in a condo while my house is being finished. And by living it up I mean taking money out of the money set aside to finish my house to rent a place to live so my littlest kids don’t eat screws and climb scaffolding.
My point here is I’m using condo wifi. And it lasted a whopping two days before going out. So while I have no reliable internet to use a keyboard ready device I must blog with my thumbs on my smart phone using the small amount of data I allow myself in my cell plan.
Two paragraphs of explanation later, I have to blog quick today. So let me tell you my secret. I’m currently a barista. I make coffee and espresso drinks for people in an amazing little shop. It’s a jewel, to be honest. We serve the finest espresso drinks around and we’re in a town where most would believe fine things are rare. I take enormous pride in my work and with a nose pointed high into the air I mock chain coffee with snarky sass and annoying confidence.
But there’s this drink. A drink I can only buy at the one place I never buy actual coffee. *Big Sigh* Im addicted to Green Tea Frappuccinos.
It’s so shameful, I know. I’d say 3-5 times a week I drive my vehicle over to the local abomination of craft coffee shop and make my order. It’s become such a problem that they KNOW me. I’m a regular. It’s just that, nobody else has this drink. It’s the green tea matcha powder. I ask for extra matcha and less sweet. It’s just…so good. And above getting my antioxidants in frappe form, it’s being served to ME. Having someone make me a drink is something I was missing. I make hundred of orders weekly for other people. Having someone make me something is really amazing for once.
So now you know. I won’t blame you if you have a hard time looking me in the eye for a little while. But for the record, I still despise chain coffee. That’s worth something, isn’t it?
