Look Who's Wearing The Green Apron

Look at this greatness right here. My name is Tricia, and I am a Starbucks barista. It was really kind of the next logical step.  I'm there all the time anyway, so let's just make this official, right? The boys are thrilled that I'll learn how to make frappuccinos, and they're impressed that I'm finally […]

I'm not Distracted - I just need to Settle In.

I am so ready to write.  And it's going to be perfect and compelling and gripping - even just to write it.  I know it.  I just know it.  How could it not be?  I'm away from home, staying at a hotel until I speak at an event, and this is the most perfect writing […]

Take Your Kids To Work

Take Your Kids to Work Day.  We are writing books. Tuck is writing about polar bears. Tyler is writing about how he would like to be like Jonas Salk and find cures for viruses like polio. Not even kidding. I'm kind of having to tone down the joy of my job, or they would never […]

A Letter to Tripp and Tyler

Dear Tripp and Tyler, Your comedy saved my life. When my husband died, my world became very small. I was asleep or at Starbucks. I couldn't bear to be in my home, yet I was terrified to leave. Nights were the worst, because the trauma replayed whether I was awake or asleep. I couldn't get […]

Trip To Bountiful

I'm sitting at my corner table.  The one I loved so much.  It's not Starbucks anymore; now it's Smashburger. The music is loud.  The environment is Burgers. A guy in the kitchen is singing random phrases from songs of the early nineties.  Loudly. Every few minutes, someone on the staff yells something in jibberish, and […]

Across The Street

My Starbucks moved across the street. I've joked a bit about this transition, teasing that I'm handling it well, that I'm only a little bit angry, that I needed to walk the perimeter to be sure of its boundaries.  I've joked and laughed and made light of it. I've taken some teasing.  What kind of […]

Blue Dot

I might be a follower. At least in the physical sense. I have discovered this self awareness: the extent to which I'm directionally challenged.

The Rest Of Us Are Regulars

Dear kind person at Starbucks, You were gracious to ask if I am okay. You probably wondered why no one else asked. It's because the rest of us are regulars here. And sometimes I come here just to cry. They know me. Now you do too. Thanks for saying hello. t.
