Above-Par

This morning the weather was, again, above-par. According to the weatherman, it’s about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year, but I don’t care. The sun was unabashedly shining everywhere I went. And I got on the 9:05 bus, which was pretty amazing, since for the last week or two I’ve been hitting the 9:35 or later. My neighborhood was still and silent at 9 am.

Starbucks has a new drink, and I highly recommend it: Caramel Mocha. Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like: a mocha with a shot of caramel, with some whipped topping and caramel drizzled on top. Nothing new or terribly original, but good nonetheless. Far better than Caribou’s Turtle Mocha, which has the downside of “turtle toppings,” which are merely crunched up Snickers, that melt and end up as crunchy peanut pieces at the bottom of your drink, which are just weird.

I’m busy today at work, so not much else to write.
