I forgot to change my the time on my alarm. I woke up thirty minutes late. This morning was a rush. And then the traffic was bad. And then my dentist told me I, who anally brushes and flosses and has the worst teeth in the world, needs two crowns replaced. Did I mention they can never get me numb? I either have dental work with an anesthesiologist or without any kind of numbing at all, depending on how big the job is. They sent me home with a prescription for Valium or something of the such, and told me to come back in a week. It should be fun times. I was already in a foul mood by 9:30 this morning. And I had not even had time to drink my coffee this morning. Bad mood. No caffeine.
I pulled into the first Starbucks drive-through I saw.
"Gooood Morning. Welcome to Starbucks. What can I get you this fine morning?"
"Tall, iced white mocha, non-fat."
"Nope. All out."
Huh? How are they all out? "Of what? They white mocha, the ice, or the non-fat?" My response was met with laughter.
"Eh. I was just kidding. That will be $45.75, please pull forward." I wasn't quite sure if the price was a joke or not.
I made my way to the window, ready with a wise little joke about not messing with people prior to giving them caffeine, and then a hand reaches out the window with my drink. My drink. That has whipped cream and strawberry sauce dribbled over the top.
"I made it special for you," he grins.
I do not smile at all. I hate whipped cream. Blech. I stare at him. He grins more. The guy behind him working the register giggles. I am NOT amused. I continue to stare at him.
"What? You don't like it?"
"I hate whipped cream." I am giving him the meanest look I know how to give.
"Ooooo. Good thing I know magic." He waves his hand over my drink. Then he removes the extra lids that contain the whipped cream and strawberry concoction neatly separated from my precious drink. Both guys practically fall down with laughter. There are tears streaming down their faces. I was had.
Damn. That was good. And there is really nothing I can but laugh with them.
