I woke up this morning with two felines staring down at me from the the shelf below. I quickly remember that we’re out of cat food. I acted quickly because I thinking they were sizing up my eyeballs as the next-best-thing for breakfast. Cat food √ , next I found myself at Ritual Coffee on Valencia for our morning coffee (jesus juice) for me and my better half who was still in bed. I rolled up on my sleeves of my flannel to expose my tattoos in hopes of receiving better/ faster (it’s that kind of place) I have a love-hate relationship with Ritual. I hate it when I wait in line for 10 minutes for an ice coffee and pay $2.50 for a scone half the normal size, but I love them when they make “purdy” designs on the top of my boyfriends mocha.
OK OK, what was my point here? Ahhh, I remember now. I approached the milk station there in a stylish red container were straws and on the outside marked ” Biodegradable Straws”. I’ve seen them before but they haven’t stroke me like they did today. 1st thought, COOL, 2nd thought , WHY? and 3rd thought . . .Damn , this is a “deelish” ice coffee ( FYIRituals ice coffee tastes like chocolate to me) . This is what I found out about these FANCY-MODERN STRAWS
