The Starbucks Date

Coffee date at Starbucks,
 Doesn’t it seem like a must do?
Something so very simple,
At the same time so elite.
Especially for broke college students,
It’s saved up for important dates.

Date at Starbucks was a dream,
That we kept on postponing.
And suddenly, one normal day,
At a park, munching on samosas,
I look at my man and said,
“Starbucks is such a facade.”

“I make the best coffee,
And ambiance, we love it green.
Then, why is Starbucks on our list?
It’s nothing but overpriced.”
He just flopped his arms around me,
As we both stared at the sky with a smile.

Few months after that day,
We did end up in Starbucks.
He ordered Caffe’ Mocha,
And me Caffe’ Americano,
One sip and we knew,
What I said was true.

    Beautiful articulation of feelings, its not a place that makes a bond blossom. Instead the emotions that are shared between 2 souls that unites 2 heartbeats into 1. Truly delightful to say the least 👏👌

    As a former barista and shift manager there, I can agree with you my friend. It is overpriced and definitely a status play. Tonight I made my Mom, Dad and I a very similar tea to a handcrafted concoction they sell and you know what, it was even better 😊

      Haha. None of the coffee parlours or cafes match the hype. It’s all about the ‘gram and proving to world how much of a spendthrift one is. 🤗🤗😘😘
      Thank you so much, Uzzawal. ❤️

      So glad you enjoyed reading this. 🤗🤗😘😘😘❤️
      I did see the result, I’m still figuring out how do I react to it. Like how much of the excitement is acceptable? 🙈🙈🙈Cause my half open eyes in middle of my half complete sleep is wide open now. But my brain is too dead to form words. Thank you seems so bland. I wish there was jumping with joy and being on cloud nice emojis. 😂😂😂🤗🤗😘😘😘❤️💖❤️❤️💖❤️❤️❤️❤️😍❤️❤️💞💞💞❣️💞😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘💞💞💞💞💖💖💖❤️❤️❤️❤️❣️❣️💞

        Oh! I wish I could stay in my own world! It’s way better, you know! I walk around carrying knives and guns with me, though I don’t kill anybody except for bad guys. I travel around and explore…
        It’s nice! You should probably visit my world someday.

    So nice , Shreya!😍💜💜
    I too wonder that why some couples fancy about having a date in such high profile places, where there is so much of pomp and show and are keen to spend their money.😜😂😂 Nothing could be compared with a handmade coffee under the roof of sky !!😂😍😍
    Loved reading it😘🤗
