My vice...

My vice is coffee...well, my BIGGEST vice. I mean I have other unhealthy habits/addictions, but this is the my favorite vice. I love it. Plain and simple. I love to buy a pound of beans (leave 'em whole people) and leave it in the car while I run an errand and when I get back in the car I take a deep breath, filling my lungs with the aroma. It's like heaven. I can stand in a Starbucks and just go around and squeeze the bags to inhale that yummy roasted bean smell. It's really like a drug.

Just recently my Soul Mate got a job at 'buckies. I'm so jealous. She gets free coffee drinks before work...after work...during work....my, my, my. AND she gets a free pound of coffee or some kind of tea every week. Can you believe it? SHE gets FREE COFFEE! And she doesn't even like the stuff. Life is funny isn't it?

I guess I could get a part time gig at Starbucks. I wonder if they go through your financial statements before they hire you... I imagine that if they see too many Starbucks transactions they probably wouldn't hire you because their profit margins would go down. Hmmm...something to ponder. AND I would have to have the motivation to work two jobs. Hats off to Soul Mate for taking that on. Stay at home Super Mom by day, Super HOT Barista by night. I would be Super JACKED up Barista by night and Super Hungover needing a caffeine fix by day. Guess that wouldn't work out would it?

I know, I know, this isn't a very interesting blog today. I don't feel interesting today. I feel bloated, anxious and annoyed. Good combo huh? Boy, I can't wait for swimming lessons tomorrow night. Until later my friends...have a shot of espresso and think of me.

You crack me up! I'm going to try that coffee beans in the car trick. I heart the aroma too...

I'm so dumb. It took me all afternoon to realize that "'buckies" is a nickname for Starbucks. This whole time I was thinking your Soul Mate got a job at Bucky's Casino up in Prescott. I couldn't figure out why she'd want to work so far out of town....

Duh.

Okay, so I'm technically challenged!

"Hot Barista" I like it! I think I'll have them put that name on my apron when I'm cool enough to have my name on an apron. Apparently, you have to earn that. I guess when when you're like "yoda barista" you get a black apron. Kinda like karate. Bucky's secrets you all want to know. :-)
