I'm going to do it. And, if I do it, you should ask, "then, what is the point of this blog that three of you read?" Well, I'll tell you. I'm going to support the small business owner. That is, if the small business owner includes Caribou, Panera, and Dunkin'. But, seriously, I'm going to give up Starbucks to find the independents, the ones that took a risk to create a living room in a retail space and make some lattes and find some new friends.
And I'm going to become one of their friends. I respect their initiative to give something a go.
Off the top of my head, I can only think of two independently-owned coffee shops near my house. So, I'll hit them up first. Then, I'll do some research. In my quest to be a good citizen, I'll waste gas to get to the indie. I'm committed to make a difference with my coffee drinking.
The years that I've really stretched myself, I give up chocolate. Is giving up Starbucks even a bigger stretch? I'll let you know when I hook up a Starbucks-branded IV of mocha latte into my arm on Easter.
