Overly Stimulated


“Hey, Ethel, I’m stopping by Starbucks on my way over. Want coffee?”
“I only drink tea, Cheryl.”
“Oh really, since when? You had a latte at lunch yesterday.”
“Since last night. I read coffee is bad for you. It’s a stimulate, you know.”
“Everyone knows that. In moderation it’s fine, you just don’t know how to moderate. And, you are hyper enough without any added stimulation, Ethel.”
“Well, thank you for that, Cheryl.”
“Well, I’m stopping, they have a new Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato on the menu I want to try.”
“Cinnamon? Macchiatos have caramel. Okay, pick me one up, please.”

  1. I used to work in a coffee shop… chocolate covered coffee beans – that’s a yum!
    But one gal once ordered a straight up triple espresso…. after a double – I wonder how long she was bouncing off the walls 😉

    1. Wow. Yes, chocolate covered coffee beans are yum.
