Hi. My name is Sara.

"Hi, Sara."

I am addicted to Dunkin' Doughnuts Hazelnut coffee with cream and sugar. I haven't always been this way. I used to get by on a nice Diet Coke...for social drinking, really. I only went out for coffee for the talking and social piece that accompanied it. But like any addiction, it took a special drug to get me hooked. I thought I had tried the hard stuff before like Starbucks or Caribou, but I guess I like to slum it when it comes to coffee. The guy behind the counter now knows my order by heart. People look at me and I know what they are thinking..."Man, she has a problem" when the man behind the counter says, "Medium Hazelnut cream sugar." I politely say, "Yes. Thank you."

I don't care about the judgement I am getting from those doughnut buying junkies...all I know is that the minute I get back to my car and drink that sweet, sweet nectar, I find a little peace in my far from chaotic world.

Had a cup of the exact same thing Friday morning. It was bliss.
