Always check

Tonight, I spent time with some mighty good friends. We partied hearty and hit all the hot spots of Mesa: Red Robin, Starbucks, AMC Theatres, the parking lot..... adventurers we were.

I also had the pleasure of trying a Salty Caramel Hot Chocolate from Starbucks. It was delish. My friends and I sat outside and enjoyed our beverages. After the first few sips, I commented that it had a slight coffee flavor.
A friend remarked that Starbucks uses dark chocolate, which explained the bitterness I was tasting. I was surprised that none of the ladies I was with was having an aversion to the drink. Most of them have never tasted coffee, and they should have found it to be too strong a flavor. I, on the other hand, have had coffee in the distant past, and I enjoy(ed) it's taste. I remarked several more times that it had a strong coffee flavor. A friend grabbed my drink, took a whiff, and said "It's because you're drinking coffee". Other's whiffed my drink and concurred. I tried a friend's Salty Caramal Hot Chocolate, and was dismayed that it did indeed taste sweet and salty, the flavor combination I was missing in my own. I had mistakenly grabbed another's drink order, and drank half of a Grande sized White Chocolate Mocha coffee. Remember how I joked about Emma not knowing the difference between a lobster and a scorpion? I'm 31 and I mistook a cup of coffee for a cup of hot chocolate. Karma paid a visit tonight.

Mistakenly huh? I will only believe that because it happened late at night and the caffiene kept you up. I know the feeling oh too well.
