Years ago, before we even GOT a Target around the corner, I remember seeing someone refer to the Starbucks inside a Target as a "Stargetbucks."
We have one of those now, right around the corner.
Today Middle Sister and her BFF wanted to go sledding, but the sleds were in the back of TheDad's car and he had gone to help a friend with a computer problem. So they decided to take a walk. They just got back.
"Guess what, Mom! Today I ordered my first-ever coffee at Starbucks," she reported.
I asked what she got.
"Well, first I got a coffee," she began.
"FIRST? You had MORE THAN ONE coffee at Starbucks?"
"Yeah! After that I got a caramel Frappuccino. It was really good."
I made some comment about her being unable to sleep for the next three days.
Then she remarked, "This was a pretty successful day."
"Yeah, for Starbucks," I replied, thinking that she had just spent $7 on coffee.
