How to order a Starbucks...

Venti Chai latte, 3 pumps, non-fat, no foam, no water.
Grande Double Chocolate Chip Blended Creme Frappucino.
Make that two, the other as a tall.
Grande Vanilla Breve Latte.

Now, imagine trying to order this cacophony of drinks, while passengers are adding things like
Oh, and a cup of ice.
And mango slices. 
Mango slices?  At Starbucks?  No wait, that one goes on the shopping list, along with the half gallon of milk, the green-lided tea, and the loaf of bread.
What?  lol.

Now, imagine pulling up to the speaker with all of this information in your head (the Starbucks order, the perpetual grocery lists, the conversations of 4 persons, and the addition of mango slices), and then you just start laughing.  So much so that you can't even begin to ask how many pumps regularly go into a venti chai.
So much so that your husband has to lean over you from the passenger seat and begin spewing out all of this information to the person on the other end.  So much so that even as you type, you can see yourself gurgling over words as you try to compose yourself enough to pull up to the window and pay.


And if you can't imagine it... well just know that when you see the wrinkles on my face in 30 years, just know that they are laugh lines, and that I've spent a lifetime putting them there.  :)

Oh, and if you're wondering how to order a Starbucks, follow the above instructions except,
to number 1, make that 4 pumps.
numbers 2 and 3 get no whip,
and number 4 stays just the same... unless it's warm out, then I'll take it on the rocks.

And don't forget the cup of ice... and the mango slices.
