Just Get A Coffee Pot

I sat in the van with the kids while Pat went into Starbucks to retrieve my Pumpkin Spice Latte.

I watched a woman escort a little old lady along the sidewalk and into the building. I assumed the darling pair was a mother/daughter duo and marveled to myself about how time changes us…that the same squirrely kids I keep OUT of Starbucks now might one day be holding my little old arm.


All those years later…still needing my coffee.

Me: When I’m an old lady with a cane, will you help me into Starbucks and hold my arm?

Maile: What? Why??

Me: Just like that little old lady and the woman walking slowly next to her? Would you do that for me?

Maile: Why don’t you just get a coffee pot and stay home?


On second thought, it looks like I’ll be staying home.

Ouch! OK, we need to look for the bright side here. At least she didn’t say they would serve coffee at your nursing home!

Too funny. I guess you should make sure to enjoy it now while you can. LOL. She may feel differently when she starts drinking coffee herself though.

Starbucks I could pass on, but you upped the ante with the Caribou. You could hire someone to take you there.

This made me laugh — and that is just what my daughter would say.

Someday, she’ll understand that it’s not the same. Don’t worry! Or, you can ask another child. ;)

Girls. My daughter would say that. My son would have said “of course.”
