Um, yeah. I guess that’s okay.
For me, Starbucks is my grande, extra-hot, two-pump, non-fat, no whip, no foam, white mocha. It’s made special because my Starbucks people know my name, know my order, greet me with a smile, and are fun to talk to while they prepare my drink.
Thanks, Pam, Stacy, Natalie, Lexi, Christine, Corie, Sierra, and Sarah!

Update 2: Sheesh. I misspelled Jon’s name throughout. Corrected… :-(
