I never thought I would have any reason to enter a Starbuck's before. But I caved...and I see how so many millions have become addicted.
I suppose it all started with our most recent move. I offered to buy the mover's a drink and I used my money to purchase tea and coffee. I haven't figured out what degree of sinning that was. I wanted to keep the movers happy and I wasn't sure how I could refuse to get them a drink after I had offered. Later on, Mark told me how we don't allow coffee in our house. I didn't respond...I told him we could talk about it later.
So now I'm in management and I get to play the fun political/social games. I have to stay up to date on sports (not just college football) to carry on a social conversation. And living in central Virginia, golf and fishing are especially relevant.
Now I'm a social drinker as well. I carry a bottle of water (filled from the nearest drinking fountain...why do people spend so much money on bottled water?!?!) with me everywhere I go. And yes, I have had a Starbuck's cup in my hand...and I'm addicted. Someone introduced me to the Caramel Apple Cider. mmmmmm. It is a heavenly combination of sweet and tart. And I am addicted. I can't wait for the next one. I had no idea Starbuck's offered more than coffee. I've been so sheltered. But I'm not sure what level of sin I am committing now. I'm conflicted with a moral struggle of supporting a chain known for its coffee. So my question to you...should I sever the ties? Regardless of your answer, I do highly recommend the Caramel Apple Cider at Starbuck's.
