Today I got snookered by the staff at Seattle's Best Coffee, where I stopped to pick up beans and a beverage. Ostensibly, Friday's are "Bean Days" at SBC, and they promise a free medium beverage with the purchase of a bag of beans. I got the bag, was charged for the drink, but because I thought I had misread the offer, there was no "How are you going to make me happy?" discussion. After I left and confirmed that yes, the A board did say "free beverage of your choice" and not just "free coffee," my Vanilla Steamer became a metaphor for the transaction.

In case you're wondering, my day is exactly as exciting as you might think.

While hiding from the terror of the Cambridgeside Galleria in the icy embrace of Giant Chain Book Store, I wandered over to the Seattle's Best stand for a cup of hot chocolate to soothe my jangled nerves. As I was speaking to the young lady preparing my beverage she reached into a small fridge and pulled out a quart of half-and-half. Turns out, they do their hot chocolate with some generic variant on hershey's chocolate syrup and pure half-and-half. Apparently, the customers love it. I asked her to stop and just do mine with milk, since I value my organs and assorted viscera in their non-cream coated state. She was displeased and although she made my beverage, she didn't keep up the conversation. The point of my story? Seattle's Best is EVIL!!!!!!!

Which means your day has already been infinitely more entertaining than mine.
