I loooove Starbucks. I was a twice a day kind of gal back when I resided in the USofA. These days Starbucks is a little difficult to find. Instead, I have joined the Canadian bandwagon and come to rely on the goodness of Tim Hortons. Picture Starbucks crossed with Dunkin Donuts. It's good stuff. What amuses me the most about Timmy Ho's (as I like to call it) is the way in which you order a coffee. For example, I order a medium double double which means medium sized coffee with double cream and double sugar. A triple triple would be triple cream and triple sugar. Did you figure that out all by yourself? Good job.
Of course, orders don't have to be placed wtih equal amounts. The Canadian gets a 2 cream 1 sugar. And that's exactly what he says, I'll have an extra large 2 cream 1 sugar. And viola! They make it perfectly every time. No sugar and milk bar or anything. It's just standard ordering procedure.
This is an especially exciting time of year at Timmy Ho's. This week began the best part of the year. It's what gets Canadians through the last push of winter - RRRRoll Up the Rim. It's simple really, every coffee cup is a chance to win a prize. It makes getting coffee much more exciting.
Cars, cash, TVs and bikes are all up for grabs.
You can even win basic, yet equally exciting, donuts or coffees. Hey man, it's all about the simple things in life.
To find out if you're a winner you simply take your cup...
And roll up the rim. I use my teeth. I'm sure fingers would work too but mouthing the coffee cup is much more classy.
I've had 4 coffees so far this week and have won nothing. n.o.t.h.i.n.g.
Seriously, do you think it's karma's way of telling me something?
Because if so, The Canadian has already won two donuts. Then he gave them to me. Like my thighs need them. That's where his good karma comes from isn't it? What an ass kisser.
Don't worry, when I win something I'll be sure to let you know. Until then I'm going to work on amping up my karma...
