Oh it’s a great promotion – if you disregard the fact that Starbucks is probably still making money on their half-price tea. Curse it’s deliciousness!
My favourite as you know is Chai Tea Latte, Soy, Extra Hot, No Water, No Foam
But I digress… this is not a post about my love of Starbucks.
Today I was out of the office at just about the right time. Knowing I was going back for an exhilarating staff meeting I thought I deserved a half-price treat.
I made my way into my local Starbucks.
Me – “Is it 2:00 yet?”
Starbucks Guy – “Not yet.”
Me – “Drat, do I have to wait or can you just do it?”
SG – “Yeah you have to wait, it won’t let me take half off until 2:00.”
Me – Okay
Mystery voice – “I’m waiting too!”
I turned to discover a fellow half-price tea lover, who was also a few minutes early. A chatty tea lover at that.
At first I thought I was in for a repeat of the over-sharer from the waiting room. But instead I found myself a Tea Loving Knitter!
We talked about my mittens – she’s made the same ones for her kids and LOVES them. I suggested the Kitchener Knitting Fair, she said being around that much yarn is too tempting, it could be disastrous. I told her it most certainly would be – but that’s the BEST part!
It occurred to me that I was being one of the crazies. Talking to strangers, Talking about knitting with strangers. But I couldn’t help myself.
Maybe it was my desperation for delicious half-price tea.
Maybe it was my love of knitting.
I think it was a little bit of both.
