One of my favorite things about Cost Plus is the little section with coffee and tea samples at the back of each store. I poured myself a cup of scaldingly hot black coffee and continued browsing. There are so many unique items at Cost Plus. At the end of an aisle, I stopped to look at a selection of Sticky Fingers scone mixes. There were so many yummy-sounding flavors, like blueberry and cocoa chocolate chip, and they all looked easy to make. I was entirely distracted, balancing my coffee in one hand and my shopping basket in the other, imagining the impressed look Sexy Nerd was going to have when I served him up a batch of freshly made scones. I was going to knock his socks off!
Well, I may have been a little too distracted. I looked down at my shopping basket. While absent-mindedly daydreaming, my coffee sample hadn't quite been upright.
I had poured most of my free coffee right onto my white coat, right in front of everyone.
And this is no exaggeration - I had washed my coat just the day before for the first time ever. Of course!
