The One Where I Feel Like Norm From Cheers

I have a slight obsession with Dunkin Donuts coffee. I don't go every day and on most days, I make my coffee at home to save money. But I do enjoy a cup of it at least twice a week. I go to the same Dunkin Donuts every time. And I have a few 'friends' there.

Yesterday I stopped by at the end of the day to pick up a cup of coffee for myself and my Dad.

I walked into the store and without my knowledge, the woman behind the counter made me my regular order.

When I ordered a different order, a SMALL DECAF, she looked at me and said,
"But you never get that. I made you what you always get. It is ready now. For you."

"Oh, thank you so much. But tonight I just want some decaf. Otherwise I'll be up all night." I explained.

"But I already made it for you." She responded.

"So sorry about that! You are too quick for me!" I smiled.

"You SURE you want decaf? Ok, ok. I'll give it to you for free." (SWEET!)

So I walked out with THREE cups of coffee. My dad's order, my order and my 'usual'. Which I saved for this morning- it is all nuked up and ready to go.

I love feeling like Norm.

I love love love Dunkin Donuts coffee! When I lived in Chicago, I worked in Merchandise Mart and we had a Dunkin Donuts in the building. It was glorious. Hop off the El, grab a Dunkin Donuts coffee, go to my desk and read email. Ahhhh.

I'm sure you are the type to make friends everywhere you go!

How did the bar end?!?! Hopefully some rest this weekend!!

That's awesome! And too funny that she actually argued with you about what you wanted.

So yeah--what about the Bar????? It's over right? Is Sam back with you guys? Any weekend plans? How long is the wait to find out if he passed? Hope you guys have an awesome, relaxing, stress-free, family-centered weekend!
