One Cat and One Cutie

So, my mom snuck this email in with her eBay collectibles to be posted. Silly mom! Who gave her that digital camera again? Oh yeah, we did.

Obnoxious Drink

So this girl comes into Starbucks this morning and orders a tall nonfat extra hot semi-dry cappuccino. Obnoxious drink,yes, but can be made well by a professional such as myself. And lucky for her, I was on bar.

I hear her order and think, "Lucky me." You can just tell by the tone of voice in the ordering if you're dealing with know what I'm saying.

So I commence making the drink by freshly steaming nonfat milk to extra hot temperature with some lovely foam so I can free pour the milk and foam into the cup. I make the drink correctly while she watches.

She asks that I leave the lid off so that I can easily add more milk if it's too light. To myself, I roll my eyes.

She takes it and says, "Oh yeah, feels perfect."

So I hand her a lid and she says to me, "It's not for me. It's for the Devil Wears Prada that I work for!"

Ah, sigh. Made me smile. She ordered so distinctly because she knows better than to come back with the wrong drink. I decided then and there if I see her come back in, I will gladly make that drink.

Minus the obnoxious drink, I was once that Devil Wears Prada magazine editor.

My favorite kind of mail...

Envelope marked: "Official Business"

Addressed to: "Valued California Resident" at my current address

One rip and one peek inside to see that AT&T doesn't value me that much.
