The most important thing to note about this Starbucks, in my opinion, is the fact that it’s DECEMBER. Gainsville has weather akin to my beloved Bay Area, but sunnier and more humid. It surprised me a little to see alligators on the Florida theme mugs, but then, should I really be surprised by that while visiting the Gator Nation? I’m really into the Misto these days, and this one did not disappoint. Neither did reading outside for an hour the day before Christmas…
It’s all my fault. I knew I was taking a risk by changing from the blue long-sleeve t-shirt to the grey short-sleeve t-shirt. You see, I’ve consistently worn the blue shirt, and the Florida Gators have consistently won since the beginning of the season.
Last Saturday I changed my shirt; last Saturday the Gators lost. Craptastically lost.
I fully admit that this loss is directly related to one woman (me), a couple thousand miles away, who’s not exactly a fan, changing from one Florida Gator T-shirt to another.
