It was a warm start of June. I was sweating and starving. My blood sugar is at the lowest. I need something quick to feed on before I pass out. The closest cooling place I could find is Starbucks at the corner of Granville and 7th West Avenue.
A new menu is on the board: Bacon and cheese quiche bit size. This will go down fast together with a strawberry frappucino. And I order these.
The barista suggested Seriously Strawberry Frappuccino. What fancy name for added flavor but without real strawberry.
My order arrived.
Seriously Strawberry Frappuccino, Bacon & Cheese Quiche, plastic fork/ knife/cup and straw. I took a good look at what’s in front of me and saw a challenge.
The challenge is how to take the frap and quiche without using the plastics.
Recently, Starbucks declared that in 2020, plastic straws will be eliminated. 2020 is a lifetime away.
