A Starbucks Cup and a “Cup”
It was a crazy morning for sure. I woke up late and didn’t even get a chance to make my morning cup of coffee. That alone already put me in a semi-psychotic mood and If you’d ask my children they would agree. I’m rushing everyone out the door and I’m thinking “as soon as I drop off these boys at school, Starbucks time! – Venti Hazelnut Macchiato Iced Coffee.” The thought of my morning caffeine fix certainly had me excited.
Kids are dropped off at school and my car makes a bee-line to the neighborhood Starbucks, where a formidable line for coffee greets me as I enter – not a good thing since it’s 8:30 am and I’ve been awake for a couple of hours and still no coffee! I order my Venti Iced Hazelnut Macchiato, the barista asks my name and says, “$4.85 please.” I reach into my purse and start feeling around for my wallet. I feel a mysterious object that has no business being in my purse and as I extract my strange discovery, I look up and the barista has a puzzled look on her face. I see her gazing at what I’m holding – my son’s protective baseball cup!
The person behind me in line is chuckling and I quickly put it back into my purse and pull out my wallet. Shaking my head and smiling I exclaim,”I have boys!” It wasn’t the first time one of my sons put his baseball cup in my purse but on this occasion, due to my no-caffeine induced haze, I didn’t realize I was carrying it around. A bit of an embarrassing moment, but as I was driving to work enjoying my coffee, I was giggling in the car about it.
What are some strange things your kids have put in your purse?
