And That’s What’s Important

Adventures In Coffee

I got the IM from Feets that she was having a ‘ffeine attack. She needed to make a run to the ‘bucks. So we bundled up and headed to the Starbucks down the street. We got there and there was a sad sign on the door that the power was out and I found out that you can’t make crack coffee with the power out.

Feetnik was now on a mission from god. We went next door to the Holiday Inn because Brian gets coffee in there from time to time. It was a good backup plan. However, they were also closed from the power being out. Go figure. Just our luck today.

Then we went in to a convenience/tourist store and found some iced coffees in the cooler but she realized they had milk in them and it would be a bad idea. Looking so sad, the cashier came up to Feetnik and informed us, or rather her, that there was a Starbucks across the street. After walking across the street, nearly avoiding a DC Duck tour and the man attempting handing out a piece of paper with no spiel, we got to the building of sorts that allegedly had a Starbucks. We walked to the back of the building to see a huge line coming out of the beloved Starbucks. It is kind of amazing how that there is a Starbucks on every city block. Anyways. Feetnik was jonesing so hardcore that she couldn’t wait in the line that was twice as long as it should have been because of the other Startbucks store being closed.

So we walked back to the tiny store in the front of the building. While Jessica got her coffee I snuck in Vie De France to get a chocolate croissant. Jessica got her french vanilla coffee and we were outta there.

The moral of the story is that it’s a sad day when you have to add “Starbucks” to your dictionary while posting an entry here because you are sick of the red underline it receives because it’s not a dictionary word. But at least Feetnik got her coffee and it was good!
