Scene: Kristin and I enter Starbucks. We are in the middle of talking about how there is a Menchie’s across the street, how they’re overpriced and how (despite having to take out a loan to buy frozen yogurt) we still need to go one time. Both of us approach the counter with two fairly cute male baristas.
Starbucks man #1: Hi! What can I get for you today?
Kristin: Can I get a grande pumpkin spice latte?
Starbucks man #1: Sure! And you?
Me: Same please!
* Starbucks man #1 hands Kristin her latte *
Me: I love the Fall time.
Kristin: I know! I love how it already feels like Fall weather.
Me: What’s the largest size you can get at Starbucks? Like, tri-venti? Can I ask for a barrel of pumpkin spice? They’re so good!
Kristin: I think venti is the largest.
* Starbucks man #2 hands me over two lattes *
Me: Huh? Did you get yours already?
Kristin: Yeah, I think they made a mistake.
Me: Excuse me, who is the extra one for?
Starbucks man #2: Oops, sorry. My mistake. Um. You can just have it.
Me: Are you sure?
Starbucks man #1: Yeah, you can take it and throw it at a car or something.
* We laugh and walk away *
Me: When I said tri-venti, I was kidding!
Kristin: HAHA! Well, looks like you got what you wanted!
* Starbucks man #2 runs up and approaches where we are sitting *
Starbucks man #2: Excuse me, would you also like some free pumpkin cheesecake muffins?
Me: Yes. Yes we do.
Yup, today was a good day.
