starbucks coffee with a nice note

during one of my trips to el paso to fix my car, i stopped by target to get a mirror (to tape to my car and replace the side-view mirror) (very fail) and a coffee (starbucks baby!!!!). the taped mirror did not work, the coffee was not that good, but this note on the cup was great.

ps i convinced ross to watch an upside of is it cake? because i’d read good reviews of it? but it was TERRIBLE and also so dumb

a good poem
