I am, shall we say, a regular at Starbucks. I leave home a little early so I can pause on the way to work and enjoy my drink there.1Going through the Starbucks drive-through is a waste of money. (Yeah, yeah. I hear you saying Starbucks, in general, is a waste of money… (I think my footnotes need footnotes like my parentheticals need parentheticals)) Starbucks is priced for the in-store experience. As in, go inside and enjoy it on-site. So I do. When the weather is nice,2As it nearly always is in Oregon… I’ll sip my drink outside, under the umbrellas, watching everyone else scurry in and out.
Sitting outside one day,3Yup. I took this picture during a lunchtime visit. I didn’t say I only visit Starbucks in the morning. ;-) I glanced up at the umbrella pole and saw this. Too cool!4I originally posted this picture here, with just a little color. Actually, I think the color adds.
