Okay, I’ve been reading the comments in re: my dog’s introduction to the blog-o-sphere, and I have ONE thing to say: MY DOG IS NOT RADIOACTIVE. SHE IS NOT GLOWING. She’s just pale! 🙂 Here’s another pic to prove it to you:

How to Get Free Starbucks: The Response

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Life, Random, The Pooch at 8:58 am by Faith

I was an avid reader of a certain DC blog until I was blocked from his site either because he thought 1) I was a spammer or 2) I was a stalker. In any case, I really enjoyed his blog and was bummed when I wasn’t able to get my fix.

One of my favorite posts of his dealt with how to get free coffee at Starbucks. It was one of those rare blogger posts that was obviously well-thought out, humorous, and totally plausible. Anyway, I recently frequented my neighborhood Starbucks and found myself in a similar situation. In my situation, however, I found that getting free coffee at Starbucks boiled down to three key elements:

1. Wear a low cut-top.
2. Take The Pooch through the Drive-Through
3. Flirt shamelessly with the Barista.

I met all three of these elements this weekend. I was wearing a low-cut top, had The Pooch in the car with me (who is a great conversation starter), and flirted shamelessly with the Barista. When I left, I had a Grande Caramel Frappucino, a low-fat muffin, and a doggie bone… none of which I paid for. I think if I had been able to stick around for much longer, The Pooch and I could have gotten away with a free book and a Starbucks compilation CD, too.

I’m sure there are going to be some people who are appalled that I would use my feminine charms in such a manner and claim that I’m setting the women’s liberation movement back 10 years. I understand such complaints, but please understand when I say, “I really don’t care.” Free stuff rules.
