I’ve Been Seeing Someone Else

My Dunkn’ Donuts on Lawrence is closed. The fact that the sign is still standing makes me hopeful that it’s just getting a face lift and is not turning into the 3rd T-Mobil store within a square mile. So, what have I been doing for my Decaf Iced Coffee, Milk and 2 Splenda? I’ve been cheating on Lawrence and driving up to Ridge. I’m not proud of it, but I have not other choice. I will NOT spend $5 at Starbucks and McDonald’s doesn’t serve decaf iced coffee yet (don’t worry I called to register a complaint). The first time I went to the DD on Ridge, they must have sniffed the potential for affair within me, because they offered me free Munchkins. “It’s the end of the day! You look like you need a treat!” (For the record, I don’t “look” like I need any extra food.) I took them reluctantly but then scarfed all 5 before I hit the Target parking lot. Then again yesterday — this time in the morning. “A few Munchkins on the house?” Sure, why not, after all, I was going to be listening to Justin on Hello Beautiful in a few minutes — what goes better with Sunday morning art talk than coffee and donuts!?! But, now I’m in too deep. The DD on Lawrence is going to open up again and I’ll be too far gone. But, you know what DD on Lawrence? You had your chance and you blew it! You didn’t even tell me you were closing! I’m in there at least 3 times a week and you didn’t say a word! That’s why I’m having the affair — it’s because you take me for granted. And I don’t think I’ll be back! (Unless you are one of those new DD’s with a Baskin Robbins attached…)
