Weight: x+17. Nutella....100% nutella.
Today, I went to Starbucks to get a reduced-fat calorie-free treat that, in fact, has a zillion calories. So, that's not a good thing to do if you're a girl keeping up the charade of being on a life-long diet.
BUT! I refused to get the iced grande chai latte I really did want to go with it. The barista (not to be confused with barrister - the likes of Mark Darcy) asked if I was quote* "sure," and I admitted I was not - but that I wasn't going to get it anyway. I do have SOME self-control, after all.
THEN! He printed my receipt, stamped the back, and said "well, you can get a grande iced drink for $2 with this receipt if you wait 6 more minutes."
Six. More. Minutes.... The very thing that I wanted which would have cost $3.66 had I not resisted earlier....and now they tell me I can save 45% on the very same thing if I wait 6 minutes. Eek, resolve, stay with me.
If I make it through the day with the receipt remaining unused, not only will I have saved $2, but I will have saved 200 calories. So, THANK YOU, Starbucks, for testing me! I'm stronger for it!
Where's that blasted receipt, I really want a grande iced chai with non-fat milk, easy on the ice!
*I know I don't have to type "quote" if I actually use quotes, but I just like it. Sue me.
