It’s taken me many years to admit this and I know I’ve been in denial for about a year or two. But you see, I just like the coffee at Starbucks better. Mostly because it’s reliable. Verona, Estima, Sumatran. It’s all good.
Now I don’t get the $3.42 frappamochaicechinos. I just get regular coffee. Straight up. Black, no room for cream.
But today it really hit me. I was in a restaurant for lunch and while looking at the drink menu I saw they had coffee for 99 cents. I decided to pass on it because I’d rather pay $1.72 for coffee at Starbucks later. I chose to pay more because I knew it’d taste much better.
Yes, it’s ridiculous. But that was the moment it hit me.
I’m spoiled on Starbucks.
So, you wanna be an enabler?
