The favorite beverage of the season isn’t just plain jane old coffee and tea. No. It has to be dressed up with frills, flavors and a lot of calories. Every time I go to Starbucks, or I go to the app to do an order for coffee, I think of Tom Hanks in “You’ve Got Mail:”
“The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.” – Joe Fox”

Only, I don’t think it’s $2.95 anymore and thanks to the more vegan non-dairy options, there are more decisions to make.
Today THEYDRAWTOBER’s prompt is “Pumpkin Latte.”
I have to say, now I have a craving for pumpkin pie.
Oh, I like mine with Oat Milk and was using OATLY long before Starbucks discovered it.
