(Blueberries! This week's Farmer's Market find.)
We were out of coffee this morning. That's not true, actually. We had enough for ONE CUP so I let Lee have it (I'm so nice). After Lee left for work I decided to head to this cute little cafe near my house for an iced coffee. But here's my problem. They serve their iced coffee in plastic disposable cups. You see, I try my hardest not to participate in 'one-time usage' items such as disposable coffee cups, bottled water, plastic spoons/forks/knives, styrofoam take-home containers, etc. It's just so wasteful and I feel so guilty using something once and then throwing it away. But I reeeeally wanted an iced coffee. So I brought my own glass from home!! I'll admit. I was a little nervous when I got there and placed my order and then said, 'But can you please put my coffee in this cup?' as I pulled it out of my purse. She was like, 'Sure!' and didn't seem to think it was too bizarre of a request. As I sat in the cafe, drinking my delicious iced coffee and snacking on a piece of freshly baked banana bread I felt good about my odd-ball behavior.
- A handful of ice cubes
- A few chunks of juicy watermelon
- 12 or so fresh mint leaves
- A touch of honey
Do you think I'm crazy bringing my own cup to a coffee shop? I just have a very guilty conscience when it comes to being wasteful. I can't help myself! I guess instead of having 'religious guilt,' I have 'enviro-guilt.' Confession: I also bring my own spoon from home when I get fro-yo!!!!
