A co-worker gave me a cappuccino machine for Christmas; I love it! I had been debating about whether or not to get one for several months. I had listed all of the pros, like it would save money, and the cons, like would I actually use it? I was basically hem - hawing around when my co-worker intervened and got me one.
After I had had it about a month I drove by my coffee place in the middle of the day and decided to grab a quick one. The owner stuck his head out the window and said, “where you been?” I explained about the machine and how much money I was saving on coffee, gas, time, and wear and tear on my car. (I did not go in to the fact I enjoyed knowing how many calories I was getting or that I liked the flavor of my homemade cappuccinos better.) The coffee guy said, “Oh this happens every year. A few of our customer’s get a machine, but they always come back (eye roll), they always say theirs is never as good as ours!” This week I was driving by good old coffee shake on my way from work to do some shopping when I stopped impulsively to get a quick cappuccino. The next morning I took off for work and half way there I realized the reason I was so hungry was that I had forgotten my breakfast. It was wet and cold so I figured I would get a muffin and a coffee at the coffee place, because it would be quicker than Sonic. The owner stuck his head out the window and smirked, wiggled his eyebrows and said, “You’re usual?”
