Blech



I have a routine in the morning. I leave for work, take a short detour to Starbucks for a grande triple skim latte and cinnamon/apple scone. Pass by the newspaper stand to pick up a newspaper and then into the office to spend 15 minutes or so savouring the silence and catching up with what's been going on in the world while enjoying my coffee and scone.

Well today, horrors of horrors, no cinnamon/apple scones!! My choices were blueberry, pepper or coffee. I'm not a huge fan of blueberry anything, pepper first thing in the morning with a latte just made my stomach turn....so it was the coffee scone.

I sat here eating it, not too convinced but it wasn't totally unpleasant. Until.....I got to the centre and there was this mass of gooey chocolately stuff. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a total chocoholic but I was not expecting anything like that in the middle of a scone. That's just so wrong. So very wrong. If there's going to be anything inside a scone, I want to be the one to put it there. Like clotted cream and strawberry jam. NOT some thick, pseudo-chocolately goo.

So my morning has been completely ruined. Tomorrow I'll be giving those a miss, if they are on the tray again. And if they are I'm going to have to say something to the manager. Something like 'bring back my apple/cinnamon scones or I'm going to Pacific Coffee'!!

Sorry you had a lousy breakfast. I dunno. I might have liked the choco-goo. But then again, I'm a total sweets freak. I don't indulge like I did, after the brush with diabetes, but still... (drool)...

Cinnamon and apple......my type of scone. Can see why you were taken aback.
