i had quite the exciting morning today.
usually, on tuesdays and thursdays, luis works from home. and while i’m rushing to get out the door by 8:30, he’s curled up in a snuggie, headphones on, sipping a warm, delicious mocha from blue bottle downstairs.
this is basically the bane of my existence. i wish i could spend my mornings like that; i am always jealous.
but this morning, i actually had a couple extra minutes to spare, and without hesitation, luis offered to buy me – ME – a coffee from blue bottle.
of course i accepted. to deny would be criminal. we came in right during a lull in the usually never-ending line and got our drinks quickly. i, of course, got a mocha. it is thursday after all.
luis walked me to the corner – also exciting – and wished me a good day and off i went with my cup in hand. it was COLD this morning in SF, so my cup kept my hands nice and toasty during my walk to bart.
i never have any guests accompany me on my commute to work, so it was nice having the BB cup with me. it felt like i had a special treat all morning. my cup made it the whole way to the office. it was gone by the time i finally sat down.
my cup saw a lot of things on my way to work this morning. first, it sat with me on bart:
then it came out of bart with me:
then it traveled along the red brick road:
i continually enjoyed my cup as i walked:
then we walked by my new favorite dim sum restaurant:
we walked by some cute holiday decorations:
my cup then dominated the only starbucks on the block:
finally, we made it. my cup got to see my building:
and my cup got settled at my desk:
and then the cup got thrown into the trash because it was empty.
it was a fun morning with my blue bottle coffee! it was a real treat, and made for a much more exciting morning. excited for tomorrow…it’s almost friday!
p.s. yes, i did look like a freak taking photos of my cup in front of things. whatev.
