Gotta ♥ Starbucks.

stbx.jpg I had to chuckle today at the hullabaloo over Sarah Palin’s reference to a Sbx (yeah, I know, she said Quote of the Day and blew it and should have said, “The Way I  See It… number… blah, blah, blah – and should not have blundered the word: help when she used the word: support).  So, she got the #287 cup… ‘sure glad she didn’t bungle the number of States in the US or something silly like that.

You know which cup I got?  Yep……………. it’s the same #280 I’ve gotten many times.  How is that possible?  I’ve gotten that #280 cup in Seattle, in Snohomish, in Portland, in Spokane, at SeaTac and probably other places, too.   Just a few days ago, Kathryn came home with a yummy, grandé extra-hot mocha — she was actually laughing when she handed it to me.  Yes, it was #280.  I nearly crumbled… but I was revived by the delicious brew.

I don’t even know how many times I’ve gotten that #280 cup.  I’m telling you, it’s a conspiracy.  In the last four or five years I’ve developed a nagging and sometimes debilitating inferiority complex – and no, I’m not kidding, and so when I get the cup — that number two-eighty cup, I start to think someone’s arranging it. It’s ironic — almost humourous.  Almost.

I’ve never gotten #287.  I’m glad, actually — and not just bcz I think Ms. Albright was way off.

My cup?  Quote #280?

  1. Pamela,
    That is SO FUNNY….I didn’t have a clue what you were talking about until down at the bottom….I go to Starbucks occassionally, but I guess I usually get a cold drink…so I didn’t know about these quotes…
    Seriously though…I know that I have appreciated everything you have said to me….and I learn volumes from you about being a wife, mother and woman of God….so let me do the learning and you do the talking and we will glorify God along the way….the other way may be scary!!!!

  2. And I thought I was the only one that got the same number over and over again. I get (I think it is) #298, which a Tim Russart quote. If I don’t get that one then I get the one from a Virginia student but I really don’t care I guess. As long as it has the yummy, creamy Pumpkin Spice Latte (venti please) then I don’t really care what the outside says. I did tell my husband that Amarillo is so conservative that Starbucks might be afraid to put those liberal quotes here. We are known to voice out opinion around here. After all, Texas didn’t become the greatest state without working for it 😉
