Caolinn: “Mom, I can’t believe you let Xavier have coffee, and now you’re going to leave them alone in the house.”
Xavier: “Scientists have proven that caffeine doesn’t make you hyper.”
Caolinn: “That is not true!”
Xavier: “This is why you’re not a scientist!”

(In the midst of discovering the wonder that is a Starbucks chocolate cakepop.)
Me: “Oh, my, God, why is this so good!?”
Me: “I’ve got it…it’s like the world’s most delicious Ding Dong in my mouth.”
Me: “Shut up.”
**For my non-American friends…a “Ding Dong” is both a chocolate cupcake-like thing that will no doubt kill you slowly, and also one of the 4-million terms that America has invented for ‘penis’. Go USA!**

(A text conversation, in which I
HOPE autocorrect is to blame.)
Pam: If your students do a presentation for the parents, and the parents get you a thank you…what’s your preference? $10 bouquet flowers or $10 Starbucks card?
Me: Gift card…always the gift card.
Pam: My friend said, ‘flowers are classy’. And I’m thinking fuck classy, three kids in this class ate dicks. The teachers need coffee damn it, not flowers.
Pam: “Are” NOT “ate”!!!
Me: If three kids ate dicks…you’re gonna have to spend more than $10, and might I suggest instead of Starbucks, you put the cash toward some attorney’s fees.

Drew: OMG…some girl at Starbucks just asked if the Sumatra coffee was named after Frank Sinatra.
Me: SHUT. UP.
Drew: I can’t make shit up this good. The entire line went silent.
Me: Wait…YOU went silent? That’s gotta be a first.
Drew: Well, I was half-way through writing her a prescription for a hysterectomy before I stopped myself and realized I’d get sued.
Me: Yup, there’s our Drew…I knew he was in there somewhere.
Any reason that doesn’t include poisoning his breakfast is unacceptable.
(whispering during vintage Disney cartoon prior to Frozen)
Me: “Is it just me, or are old-timey cartoons sort of date-rapey?”
Casey: “Maybe he’s carrying her off to a Starbucks to ask about her hopes and dreams.”
Me: (incredulous look)
Casey: *sigh* “I tried.”
