What to do while waiting for someone in Starbucks

August 27, 2010 1 comment

A friend and I had to kill some time while waiting for a third person, so we decided to wait it out in Starbucks. I ordered my usual Venti Mocha Frappuccino with whip cream and in no time at all, I was enjoying one of my favorite frosty beverages. As I was sitting there, I happen to notice the writing on the straw wrapper. Yes, I know, it’s probably been there forever, but this was the first time that I noticed it. I don’t usually make a point of examining straw wrappers and I don’t usually hang out in Starbucks either. So I’m sitting there holding the straw wrapper at eye level staring at the following words:

Not Recommended For Use in Hot Beverages

Okay. That makes sense. Now what? I keep looking at the words as if something magical is going to happen and then an idea comes to mind. I take the wrapper and start folding it to make other sentences, phrases and words.  I know what you’re thinking, but what the heck. We had a lot of fun and a few good laughs trying to out do each other. The next time you’re in Starbucks with someone, you should try this straw wrapper word game.
