Today is that day again: Free Coffee Day!!! Otherwise known as the day where I’m reminded just how much I go to Starbucks. I’ve purchased 15 drinks at this point, so they feel like they can afford to throw one in for free. Quite right, too. Though I think that the 10th drink should be free. Or give me free extra espresso shots. Just thinking out loud, but I think those are both good suggestions. Don’t you think so, Starbucks? 😉
I ended up having a very busy day at the office yesterday and had to stay late. Super bummer. And when I got home I was exhausted. So exhausted apparently, that I fell asleep on the couch with the Hubbster at like 8:45. Ridiculous. I really am becoming an old woman, and the process seems to be speeding up. It’s quite irritating. The Hubbster was super sweet though and let me nap on his arm. And drool. I always drool when I’m not in bed.
So the big thing that I missed last night in my unexpected slumber (besides Bones) was the final March Madness match-up between Kentucky and Kansas. Thrilling, I know. When I fill out my bracket, I don’t know anything about the teams except their rankings and my random associations to the school. My best friend Erin (a.k.a. Boo) is in law school at Kentucky, so since they were ranked with a 1, I picked Kentucky to win it all. Unbeknownst to me, they were super hyped this year and apparently (I guess officially now) the best team in the country, so me picking them to win wasn’t very different from anyone else’s bracket–including the Hubbster’s. Since we picked the same winner, and I changed my bracket around after Ally told me that Syracuse’s star player wasn’t playing, the Hubbster claimed his first victory over me in a bracket pool for the first time in the history of our relationship.
Lesson learned: I will never change my bracket based on silly things like “information.” I’m coming for you next year, Hubbster. And I will be armed with nothing but my gut and a list of team mascots, organized by adorable-ness.
