So my daughter constantly drags me to the mall to go to Hot Topic because they have some anime items that she likes. See, she has this idea that she is somehow "goth chic" but in reality - yeah, it just ain't sticking! Anyway, I usually agree to go because I can go to Barnie's and get some coffee and things don't seem so horrible... come on, it's the mall.
Well, we go last night and to my horror I find that Barnie's gates are closed, the lights are off and their signage has disappeared. How I am I supposed to function at the haven for little snot nosed teenagers when there is no coffee? I walk up because I figured that there must be some mistake. Surely they would have left a nice venti mocha nonfat for me before they left, right? Wrong! Instead, they posted a sign saying that my podunk mall would soon the proud owner of a Starbucks!
This means that I don't have to drive forty forevers to get a decent cup of joe! I don't have to bribe myself into getting to work an hour early so I can run down to the one on the corner before my shift... I can have Starbucks whenever I want!!
I must have been a really good girl... thank you Santa.
