My First Latté

I feel I have finally joined the twenty-first century—I had my first latté. (I even had to pull the container out of the trash to see how to spell it.)

I had a coupon from Dunkin Donuts to try theirs, and since there is one within easy walking distance, I strolled over one pleasant afternoon.  Even with the coupon, the price was $1.29, which I thought high, but it was money for education.  Last I knew, coffee was 10 cents a cup, but that was a while ago, so maybe a quarter could be expected now.

The thick foam, I admit, was pleasantly soft and warm on my upper lip, but it did not have much flavor.  The coffee itself was sweet and good, and even though the size was Medium, it contained about four times as much as those old thick ceramic diner cups, so the price did not seem as steep.  But that was with the coupon.  Without it, the price would be $3.25.

Has the world gone crazy?   Spend that much on so much coffee every day?  I even saw customers order the large size.  No wonder working-age people seem to have so much energy.

My reasons for writing this blog are spelled out in the posting of 10/1/2012, Montaigne's Essays. They are probably not what you think.
