Redeeming the Coffee Card

This day started out okay, then it got hairy, then turned into a kind of a bummer, then it picked up and then it got REALLY really good when my hubby agreed to go to coffee with me at my favorite coffee shop which should be everyone's favorite coffee shop AND I realized on the way there that my punch card was full and I was due for a FREE coffee so it would be like a two-fer and this was the card that I found... FOUND on the ground near my church so someone else I don't even know but who has excellent taste in coffee shops has a part in my enjoying that FREE decaf mocha frap tonight. You heard me... I said decaf... and despite the lack of caffeine look at the run-on sentence and all the ALL CAPS and the ellipses!
Thank you, irresponsible stranger, for dropping your card! I tried to think of you with gratitude when I ordered my drink this evening. And can we all agree that I may not have it all together -- my house is dirty and my dog has an ear problem and my children aren't in advanced math and my weight needs some attention --- but gol darnit if my thumbnail isn't clean, trim, and smooth.

I always love reading your posts! I'll look forward to it EVERYDAY for the rest of my life-or your life! Lol

If you ever need a nighttime buddy for your coffe shop (do they serve Dr. pepper-scratch that-Diet Coke? I'm trying to get my weight to be as good as your nails), text me! How far is it? Maybe we can walk there? :)

I've always loved your clean, well trimmed fingernails.

No matter the topic, the stuff you come up with is always entertaining and, often times, enriching. I look forward to reading your blog posts every day now. What a treat! Congrats on the free coffee score and the thumbnail, come to think of it. Good hygiene should be celebrated!

Katie - I'd LOVE to walk to Grouchy John's with you!!! I actually don't know if they have soda - I'm embarrassed that I don't know. Kevin, thanks. I'm glad you aren't only enamored by my golden hair. And Jenn - you are the number one affirmer in my life and sometimes now when I write I'm picturing you as my audience because you've said so many nice things. If I do become famous, I'll have to pay you large sums of money to accompany me on book signing tours. Ha ha.

I love the idea Teri and I love your blogs. Keep it up.

I have an idea, how about you blog about a different type of beer each day and I will help with the taste testing, like the movie Julia & Julia?

Or, blog about books recommending the best ones for specific subjects?

We have to go there when I visit! I am SO looking forward to more blogs from you, you are so talented. I would come hear you speak too;)

Ha ha, well if all else fails, you can always be a hand model! Staying on topic, though, I never tire of posts on Grouchy John's. I can't believe I still haven't visited this place after all of the rave reviews.

Teri Love said...

Eden and Suzie - I want to take you to Grouchy John's! It's my happy place. And Debbie, I'll consider the beer idea. :)

I will be sure to take you up on that offer, one of these days!

Write about... What you're reading (and what you're purposely NOT reading) , how to stay organized, being Catholic, making your kids behave, being a writer, homeschooling, cooking, but most of all how AWESOME your friends are ;)

I'm honored that you would think of me while you write. Yes to the large sums of money!
