Thanksgiving Day is still a few days away, but I’ve already kicked off this year’s holiday season with with my traditional Black Friday Eggnog latte. Sure I jumped the gun a bit, but I’m only human. Come on, it’s eggnog and espresso; what are you going to do? And it’s not entirely my fault that I couldn’t wait until Friday. Partial blame goes to my wife for decorating too early so she could figure out which decorations she could share and which to keep. Even more blame goes to Starbucks themselves for switching their default milk from whole to 2% this year. The number of times I have forgotten to ask for whole milk has left me with an overall annual dissatisfaction. Of course, leaving me with no alternative but to order an “el” an eggnog latte before Black Friday. And since I’ve determined through the stretching of facts, that this situation is in no way my fault, I just might have another one today.
Preseason is upon us
