Say It Isn't So!!!!!!

Starbucks Logo

I have terrible news!! This morning as I'm waiting for my Grande 3 Pump Vanilla Non-Fat Latte, Jason (my favorite barista and the guy I wanted Kathryn to marry but she has Dater now) informs me that the store is closing! I had read that Starbucks was closing 600 stores but never in my wildest dreams imagined that MY beloved Starbucks would EVER shut down.

How can THEY do this to ME??!! My haven from the chaos which is my life...the Starbucks where I do my morning Bible study...the Starbucks where I get to see Andy, Alisha, Sharon, the 2 Jasons and Emily, all my best barista friends...the Starbucks where I get to hang out with other moms and get the scoop on schools, activities, etc...the Starbucks right next to Glorias where I can get a margarita after I have coffee (or vice versa).

My life is ruined! What's a caffeine addict to do? Make coffee at home? Riiiight.

Which Starbucks is it? I was saddened to learn so many were closing as well!

Wow...That is shocking news indeed. I hate to put the guilt on you, but perhaps it's because you laughed at my intense desire for name recognition at MY Starbuck's. We welcome you at the Knox location, Jacolyn....

I agree this is sad news, but even more incredible is how much you sound like Kat in your blog!!!

Open your own coffee house! Local places are always better anyway.

Oh, my gosh. I did not know that Starbucks was closing so many stores. We have 3 in a 5 mile radius so if they close on I guess it would not be too inconvient to go to one of the other ones. I just hope it is not the one with the drive thru.

Oh My!!!!! We must get them to change their minds on that particular one. I guess they just don't realize the importance. This is just unamerican. We have three small children that are depending on them.
