What could've been...

I wrote a post. A GREAT post, explaining why it doesn't bother me to pay $4 for a cup of Starbuck's coffee, in response to a recent post on the DC Bachelors blog. It was a good post. It was an amusing post.
But my computer went off and got PMS and crashed on me.
And now?
I'm too lazy to retype it.
SO, I'm just gonna summarize. I can make my own coffee. I enjoy making my own coffee. I can make damn good coffee. I can even make decent emulations of the frou frou drinks, like frapps or caramel latte`s. However, at the end of the day, I'm usually lazy enough to want someone to do it for me and none of my friends really possess those skills. $4 drinks are not for the day old, black coffees, though. $4 goes for getting me out of my apartment, chilling in the pleasing decor, the frou frou coffee drinks that are far more convenient for them to make than me having to drag out my blender and whatnot.
And why Starbucks and not another coffeehouse?
I do go to other coffee houses. College Perk, the closes non-Starbucks cafe` to me, is a great place and I ADORE it. However, there are two Starbucks between me and College Perk and sometimes, I don't feel like fighting the Rt. 1 traffic when I can walk a block to get to a Starbucks.

My favorite is when smokers ask me if I feel bad spending all that money of coffee. I guarantee you, I spend less on coffee than the average smoker spends on tobacco.

And I'm still allowed to drink coffee in bars.
