Starbucks is giving away a free pastry with a morning coffee tomorrow to everyone on the planet while supplies last. This is one of those things that makes me realize how different my life is as a stay at home mom of three than as a working stiff. Back in the day of commuting and grabbing food on the go this would have made my week. I'd have been chirping about this, planning for this, and been totally giddy waking up tomorrow, realizing I'd get a free pastry. Not because I'm a big bargain hunter, but it would feel like a hand of friendship, an affirmation, like that cute guy in History class sharing his notes with you. Just lovely. And I could plan, guilt free, on not making breakfast for myself. Ah, the old days.
Nowadays, I still hit Starbucks with great regularity, but almost never get pastries because of the whole gluten free curse, and because I generally have to buy for a carfull so we have a rule: either drinks, or food, never both. I'm not made of money, am I?!
So, working stiffs, enjoy your free pastry tomorrow!
