Non-fat Implications

  • So I’m going back to therapy, I’m both nervous and relieved. It’s been about 2 years since the last time. It just got to the point that either I made an appointment or end up in a preverbial hole that I can’t get out of.
  • My new favorite blog is Cracked, mostly because of this piece on 6 shows that traumatized cast members.
  • I stopped by Starbucks this morning to get an iced vanilla latte because I hadn’t had one in about a week. Hey, I desserve a treat sometimes for my stupid commute. Anyway, the guy gave me my drink and said “iced non-fat latte” and I was almost like “yeah I didn’t ask for non-fat” (normally it’s 2%) but then I wondered if he just assumed I was getting non-fat because he thought I should be on a diet. I know, that’s how my brain works. I didn’t say anything and left with the drink. It’s not so bad actually.
  • I can’t think of anything else of importance in my life, which is really pathetic.

    Sometimes the barista will ask mike if he wants whipped cream and not ask me and I always feel like that’s her way of saying you don’t need it, sister

    Best of luck in therapy. I hope it helps you.:)

    Maybe that guy made that drink non-fat because the person before you had it non-fat so he had the lo-cal version on the brain.

      @Hannah, that would be the way to look on the bright side but would that be me?

    Therapy = Good. I heart coffee. Poor service = bad. Good stuff with less cals = magically delicious :whall:

      @Linwood’s Girl, true that, though it wasn’t quite as delicious as i wanted.

    I’m glad you’ve decided to see a therapist. You already know what I think about the non-fat iced vanilla latte. 🙂

    I was totally going to comment about the waiter and the Diet Coke, but my loving husband beat me to it. I was too mortified to correct him, and I’m fairly certain he got a shitty tip and I called him an asshole when he left the table.

    Sometimes they gave me that look when they asked me whether I wanted whipped cream for my non-fat latte. And they gave yet another look if I said yes. A$$holes. :ed: BTW, love the picture. And GL with your sessions!
