Temporarily Closed... (SOL #5)
As each day passes my need for caffeine in order to function increases. I used to loathe the taste of coffee and could just drink a Diet Coke if I was feeling tired or needed a little "pick me up." Gone are those days.
Each morning I have the same conversations with myself. How groggy are you? Is coffee essential to driving safely, or can you wait a few minutes? Iced coffee or hot? What does your day look like? And more importantly, Dunkin' or Starbucks?
One morning last week I found myself trying to make the choice of where to get my daily cup/vat of joe. Due to the late night before, and the fact that I had a little extra time to go out of my way, I chose Starbucks. This adds on 5-10 minutes on my commute, but I felt the benefits of having my Starbucks made this the best choice.
I finally turn into their parking lot. I was astonished to see no line in the drive thru... score! But wait, what is that tape blocking the drive thru lane? Then I saw the sign.
It was the beginning of a sad day that I had very little to no energy.
