I want to take a moment to praise my favorite Starbucks. It’s located in West Los Angeles on the corner of Sepulveda and Palms. It’s a drive thru only Starbucks with a walk up window, but no indoor cafe.
The baristas at this Starbucks know me and treat me like royalty. They are always so kind, and they go above and beyond to make sure I’m happy with my drink.
I’m a creature of habit, and I get the same thing every day — a quad shot of espresso over light ice in a venti cup with cold foam on top, usually the cinnamon one.
Today, Paige put a little note on top of my cup for me because she knew it was me.
Starbucks doesn’t have the best coffee, but this Starbucks has the best service, and that’s why I keep going back.
I went to Starbucks to get my usual quad shot of espresso (blonde) over light ice in a venti cup with extra cinnamon caramel cream cold foam (all the way to the top). The sun kicked my healing eye’s ass the entire time. I’m learning that “healing” is not as instantaneous as I may want it to be.
Still, I can see out of an eye I previously couldn’t. It’s still blurry, but I have the full range of vision in my eye, and for that, I am truly grateful.
I start each day with a quad shot of espresso over light ice in a venti cup with cold foam on top. I change the cold foam flavor each day for a little variety, but mainly I get the cinnamon caramel or the white chocolate macadamia nut one. I used to always get vanilla, but it’s not as tasty.
My day cannot start until I have caffeine.
It’s just the way it is.
About to get started writing for the day.
A quad shot of espresso over light ice in a venti cup with white chocolate macadamia nut cold foam all the way to the top.
My daily drink is always some variation of this. The only thing that changes is the flavor of cold foam.
I wrote 0 words yesterday. My brain just wasn’t into it. Here’s hoping today will be more fruitful.
I set an intention today to get more done today than I did yesterday. That includes the number of words I write. The word count to be beat is 1955.
Let’s get it.
