…my friend honore sighted hers last week. I’m not talking holly – although the tree in the park is full of berries – I’m talking the starbucks christmas cup. when I was working in an office, there were a few of us starbucks devotees who would compare notes and share christmas cup sightings. the goal was to be the first one who could say “my starbucks has christmas cups” (note the “my” part of that statement…and sadly “my” starbucks has closed and I’m trying not to think that’s just because I stopped going there every morning before my drive down GA 400!)
the christmas cup thing was such a big deal (we did “real” work, too, I promise) that when friends moved away we’d text about it – no photos, just messages – in years past, I’ve received updates on christmas cup sightings from chicago, boston and north carolina.
last week I was really excited when my (well, one of “my”) starbucks had the christmas cup sleeves. and I asked about when the cups might come out and they said a week or two.
so imagine my surprise when sara found one yesterday. darn, now there’s no way I can win the christmas cup race.
