i'm on to you starbucks! you tried to suck me in, but i'm too swift for your cheap trickery!
i'm at starbucks after work yesterday because that's where my carpool goes. i'm not the driver, so i go along every week and get a brownie and some water. i've never been a coffee man. i'm just not impressed.
first of all, i don't really like warm beverages at all. hot chocolate is ok. but coffee is mostly too bitter. i know you can sweeten it and everything, but if i do drink it i usually need to put so much sugar in it, just to make it palatable, that it's basically like hot chocolate anyway.
so, today, i was enjoying what i ordered when one of the servers brings around free samples of their new "marble mocha macchiato". i took one, hesitatingly. i mean, i didn't think i would possibly like it but...it's free. so i took a sip..."damn, this is pretty good!" another sip followed..."wow, must drink more."
i downed that sample cup pretty quick and wanted...MORE! i could barely contain myself. i was buzzed. it was all i could do to stop myself from buying a cup. but i did stop myself.
don't you try it again starbucks. you tried once, and it was a noble effort. "marble mocha macchiato"...it's coffee! but you're not gonna get me!
