Jordan Craddick, a graduate student working toward his doctorate in history from the University of Washington, plans on becoming a teacher and is passionate about changing educational systems that continue to portray Native American people as relics from the past, he wrote in an essay submitted to Sealaska Heritage Institute The non-structured workshop studies the complicated sounds and structure of the Tlingit language, KTOO.
The group is gathering on Mondays at the Juneau Public Library to learn different greetings and responses. They study with a book that the Sealaska Heritage Institute recently published, called the "Beginning Tlingit Workbook. It Only Took Two Years: About 15 people are participating in a Tlingit language workshop at the Juneau Public Library on a Monday night.
The group of Natives and non-Natives are learning a language that only about people speak fluently. The non-structured workshop studies the complicated sounds and structure of the Tlingit language. On this particular night, they are using pages from a new workbook to teach different greets and responses.

As Miss Alaska USA, she is promoting the empowerment of women through entrepreneurship, and challenging limiting beliefs among Native youth One Juneau-based non-profit has decided to give it a try By Wewsley Yiin Pacific Standard Like so many other indigenous languages spoken around the world, Alaska Native languages are in danger of dying out.
Recently, advocates who have been establishing means of revitalizing Alaska Native languages have created new opportunities for the preservation of Tlingit. Perhaps the most creative effort has been that of the Sealaska Heritage Institute, a non-profit based in Juneau that promotes understanding of Southeastern Alaska Native cultures Christian missionaries took the object from the Tlingit in the 19th century. The halibut fishhook, carved with the form of a wolf, is one of Native American objects in the possession of the Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, Massachusetts, but stored in the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem In it, she builds a case from archaeology and oral history.
Can Native research codes avoid culture clash? The San people of southern Africa seek to encourage mutually beneficial collaborations with scientists with an official code of research ethics. Can lessons from past conflicts help bypass future battles?
In March, the long-studied San people joined other indigenous groups in asking that scientific study be a two-way street, carrying benefits back to their communities as it shares their information with the world. Such guidelines seek to bridge the divide between scientific pragmatism and traditional values, in hopes of making painful legal battles a thing of the past.
More than ten distinct nations spread across five countries make up the San, an indigenous people of southern Africa who have drawn ample scientific attention for their genetic diversity, botanical knowledge, and unique linguistic consonants. But decades of sustained research traffic through their communities has created a culture clash… more London, a top 10 finalist in the pageant held last weekend in Las Vegas, walked onstage wearing a robe based on Tlingit regalia draped over her shoulders, then threw back the garment to reveal her red, Swarovski crystal-beaded evening gown.

Now a genetic study of ancient skeletons and existing tribes shows that the unwritten history was apparently just so. A skeleton found in a cave reveals a 10,year-old Native link to Southeast Alaska By Yereth Rosen Alaska Dispatch News The indigenous people of Southeast Alaska and British Columbia have a tradition of invoking their longevity in that region as going back to a time before memory.
Now DNA evidence backs up that claim, and gives more specifics about how far back the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people can trace their ancestry. Analysis of genetic material from the remains of an ancient skeleton shows links with Northwest Native people that go back more than 10, years. According to Science Online, human remains from On Your Knees Cave, dated to around 10, years old, were found to be closely related to a trio of ancient skeletons found along the Canadian coast of British Columbia.
Study reveals 10, years of genetic continuity in northwest North America Archaelogical News A study of the DNA in ancient skeletal remains adds to the evidence that indigenous groups living today in southern Alaska and the western coast of British Columbia are descendants of the first humans to make their home in northwest North America more than 10, years ago Local indigenous groups related to the first inhabitants of northwest North America UPI According to new genetic analysis, the indigenous peoples of southern Alaska and the west coast of British Columbia are direct descendants of the first human inhabitants of northwestern North America.
These Indigenous Alaskan Groups Are Linked to the First Humans to Settle in Northwest America 10, years of genetic continuity Science Alert New DNA evidence from ancient skeletal remains suggests that the indigenous groups of southern Alaska and the west coast of British Columbia, Canada are descendants of the first humans to settle in northwest North America more than 10, years ago.
As it turns out, the modern-day indigenous peoples in southern Alaska and the western coast of British Columbia are the descendants of the first people to make the region their home more than 10, years ago. The study is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Scientists did a genetic analysis on people from the British Columbia coast and southern Alaska and compared it with samples from ancient skeletons to show the connection to the humans who first settled North America, according to a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Now, an ancient mariner may be able to back that claim up.
Scientists sequencing the DNA of 10,year-old human remains from On Your Knees Cave in Alaska have found that he was closely related to three ancient skeletons found along the coast of British Columbia in Canada. The new finding reveals a direct line of descent to these tribes, and it shows—for the first time from ancient DNA—that at least two different groups of people were living in North America more than 10, years ago Alaska's indigenous Tlingit people are descendants of the first humans to settle in northwest America more than 10, years ago, DNA study reveals By Cecile Borkhataria Daily Mail Indigenous groups living today in southern Alaska and the western coast of British Columbia are descendants of the first humans to make their homes in northwest America more than 10, years ago.

Atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, begins in childhood. The pediatric aspects of atherosclerosis. A way to reverse CAD? The power of nutrition as medicine. Angina and vegan diet. So we forged onward. To a vinyl booth by a window where we were immediately given a basket of Cheddar Bay Biscuits, leading us to wonder where on a map we might locate the actual Cheddar Bay.
My friend suggested that it was probably slightly north of Old Bay. Everything about these biscuits is so very right and so very wrong at once.
Beyoncé would never eat them. They are nothing but gluten and casein bound in the holy union of butter, which is probably actually margarine and garlic powder. These biscuits are so legendary that I know someone who named her cat after them. I liked the biscuits a lot, but I am not exactly hard to please when it comes to biscuits. Most biscuits are pretty wonderful.
But were they wonderful enough to qualify as a reward for the best sex of all time? The sweet chili shrimp, however, was not disgusting. I kinda liked it. Nor was the coleslaw. My friend and I share a common fondness for coleslaw, of all things.
Growing up my mom made coleslaw for every meal. She had several versions of it, and I liked them all. Coleslaw is just a part of my life see my Chick-fil-a rant and I have zero tolerance for crappy coleslaw. Red Lobster makes good coleslaw. I give credit where credit is due. It had no onions, nice crunch and celery seeds. Still, the coleslaw was not good enough to serve as the celebration for receiving multiple orgasms.
So I ate grease and breading for lunch dipped in bland cocktail sauce with a squeeze of lemon. I think I would eat gravel if it was breaded and fried and served with cocktail sauce. My friend had to outdo me and order The Ultimate Feast, because I think he may be an overachiever. Like there are fish, but also dolphins, sea turtles, squids, shellfish, octopi, and everything else just flopping all over the place?
That is essentially what the Ultimate Feast is. Just empty the whole net over a plate and soak it all in butter and serve. Red Lobster should probably be called Yellow Butter because that is a more fitting description of the place. There was probably even some coral on there. My meal was the epitome of fried. I think they breaded and fried the plate and utensils.
Somehow, I was just fine, and I will blame my dedication to portion control on my lack of gastrointestinal distress. I do hope he was okay.
The verdict is that Red Lobster was massively underwhelming. It is by no means terrible. I was actually pleasantly surprised. Okay, I kind of even liked it, especially the coleslaw, but I am just too cool to want to admit that publically. If I die and go to heaven, I will get to eat those biscuits every day without ever gaining weight or getting stomach cramps and that will be paradise.
Red Lobster overall, though, is kind of bland. My visit to Red Lobster categorically failed to establish any logical link between its meals and sex, so the mystery remains along with the mystery of who Walt is except that he is someone who loves fried shrimp.
Was it good enough to take a man there after sex? Not even if he did that thing with his hands and his mouth at the same time. Even if he was the greatest dirty talker in the history of dirty talking. Even if he had a you-know-what the size of a Chipotle burrito AND knew how to use it.
Am I simply just picky and snobbish? Will I go back? Not unless my grandmother wants me to take her, in which case then of course, but I think she likes Olive Garden better. I'm feeling a little down today. I know what would fix this. I need to go to HomeGoods immediately. Would people think I was weird if I took a selfie in front of this sign and made it my profile pic on Facebook? Is that going too far?
My uncontrollable desire to completely redecorate every room of my home for every single season and holiday even the ones they don't close school for is officially validated. I have found my people. This is my tribe. I'm totally doing a leaf-themed tablescape for Arbor Day. Life would be better if I bought six, jewel-toned Moroccan lanterns and hung them unevenly in the corner of my living room. I need a 6 foot tall metal chicken.
Wait, is that Jenny Lawson's chicken? Where would someone put this? Where would I put this? My house is too small. I need to set my sights higher in life. I need to make enough money to be able to accommodate a 6 foot tall metal chicken. Obviously I am a loser. What kind of accent do I want my home to have? I want my home to have an accent like people in old movies. I want my house to sound like Katherine Hepburn.
I'm going to need a Murano Glass decanter set from that display over there immediately. I cannot resist this pale pink, ceramic, teeny cake stand with a butterfly on it. Okay, but wait, who makes cakes that teeny?? I should make teeny cakes. I bet there is a teeny cake pan in the cooking section. I will buy it immediately and become the kind of person who bakes teeny cakes and displays them on pink ceramic teeny cake stands.
I'm pretty sure they are playing the soundtrack to Empire Records. I miss the 90s. Oh my gosh, LOOK! Celestial motif lives on! Now they are playing all of my favorite soft-rock hits from the 80s. I may have to burst into song. Please don't tell anyone. HomeGoods be like "Your house stinks, yo.
You don't have enough candles. I pretty much need a color coordinated Yankee Candle in a discontinued fragrance from a line of limited edition veranda daydreams scents that flopped five years ago.
These things go for at least thirty bucks a candle in the real store. Watch me fill this cart up right now. I need to accept the fact that I am definitely turning into my grandmother and that it's okay to love bunches of polyester peonies in a vase of hardened polyurethane that is supposed to look like real flowers in actual water, except doesn't. Good lord, HomeGoods, I love you but could you please get carts that can actually fit that 24 x 48 inch canvas print of Marilyn Monroe that everyone had back in college, plus that sisal rug that I desperately need for my Florida room?
And while we're at it, could we please make it so that the wheels don't lock up as soon as they get within twenty feet of the door, so that the whole cart jerks to a violent stop mid-aisle causing me to get whiplash?
I need a 7 foot, foam lighthouse to go with my 6 foot metal chicken. Life is now complete. This stuff is not tacky at all. Said no one ever. My mom thinks this is very classy. Whatever this thing is, I believe with all of my heart that I could make it. I came here to get a new shower curtain liner. But I decided that I needed a chalkboard kitchen menu, a cat scratching post, a knock-off Vera Bradley, insulated, cloth lunchbox, a Slap Chop, two empanada presses, some gourmet popcorn, and a cute set of birthday party invitations even though I am not having a birthday party.
I forgot the shower curtain liner. Every single one of these things would be absolutely spectacularly perfect in my elegantly appointed, New England, shingle-style beach cottage in Newport, Rhode Island where I drink Southsides and eat lobster rolls and wear linen dresses and straw hats and have clambakes on my own private beach. That I do not have. Because this is my fantasy life. This is not real. So I should leave this aisle with its driftwood sculptures and iron crabs and spray-painted bunches of coral, and nurse my broken heart because I cannot purchase this rustic clapboard painting of a whale.
How old is this food? Because I love this packaging that suggests that this pineapple jalapeno gooseberry marmalade is actually British, possibly royal, and therefore eaten by the Duchess of Cambridge on her scones at tea time, which makes me kind of have to have it too.
Along with these giant, sundried tomato pasta tubes, 6-pack of artisan root beer, and this little bag of heirloom quinoa that is definitely not any of the brands they sell at Whole Foods. Also I should get that tagine masala spice blend because it is in a cool bottle, and I think I need ALL the coffee syrups so I can be like a discount version of Starbucks in my own home and speaking of 'Bucks, there is a bag of Thanksgiving Blend for four dollars.
Do you think if I replaced all of my dying houseplants with plastic succulents that anyone would notice? I will not buy any of these things in the evil maze of temptation that is this checkout line. No matter how wonderful they are. Oh what the hell, I could really a wheatgrass sprouter and some inspirational coasters. I tell everyone about the first time. I did that to myself. I am still closed and whatever is inside of me is still not done even though the pressure is sometimes unbearable.
You carried me fourteen city blocks across a summer dusk and I was crying and covered in blood. I even had blood between my toes and my blood got all over you and so did my snot from crying but you never said a word and you took me home and still never said a word.
When I stopped calling, it was not for the reasons you think, which some people say were obvious. I stopped calling because you saw me like that. Everyone always thinks it is them I am writing about. I am never writing about anyone even when I am always writing about you. Eighteen times I fold a post-it with your name on it before I stuff it in the cracks of the Western Wall and pray to God to make me forget you, which works.
Years later you find me on Facebook and you have three kids and a shitty job and the same wife and you have aged so badly that you look like Lou Reed, and basically no one aspires to look like Lou Reed no matter how talented he was, so I give thanks for answered prayers. If I could just stop falling for guys purely because they like cats, that would be perfect, okay? Also, remind me that good taste in music is in no way an indicator of decent husband material because it is not.
I should probably change my MO and start looking for guys who like Celine Dion. I am like a can of soup. The vacant spaces inside of me are filled with all the letters of the alphabet repeated over and over again.
Here is something I do not like to admit to myself at all: I liked your name and its spelling and the way the letters are shaped so once I even saw it spelled out in a tangle of oak branches. And I know I am only finding these things because I want to look for them, but I took this as a sign anyway. Later that night when you called me I decided that finally hearing from you had something to do with the tree. Who made you think we did? I know who it was. I want to hunt this girl down and give her a piece of my mind because no girl wants someone to do this to her, except she is me and right this second I am pretending to love it so that you will love me even though I hate what you are doing.
That you will never love me is more painful than your dry fingers and sharp nails anyway, so who even cares?
Hand to God, I am shocked that I have never seen you on the news for a double homicide. Your wife is not as pretty as me. The point is that I never felt pretty and I think she did. That I did not go to prom with you was a very poor choice on my behalf, but I have always lacked good sense when it comes to these things.
Look, I need you to know that I never forgot you, that you were the first boy who ever brought me flowers and they were daffodils and you bought them at a school fundraiser. I need you to know that I took care of them as per the instructions on the card and that they bloomed and that I kept them long after they dried up and the water turned to mold and evaporated, and I kept them because even at fourteen, I knew intuitively that I was going to have the kind of life where daffodils would be rare.
Who dumps someone over a payphone from the airport when they are on their layover on their way to see you? Do you know how annoying and expensive it was to change my flight? Do you know how hard I cried on that prop plane back to Albany? I like to think that this is why you grew up to be so ugly, because seriously, when I was with you, you were actually hot. I am intelligent and you are a know-it-all.
These are not the same thing, however, I believe that you are secretly insecure and so when you try to teach me about things I already know about more than you, actually I smile and let you think you're the smart one. I can still hear your Walkman playing in my ears. It never would have worked out between us. The last time we spoke was before my wedding. If I had known, I would have said something special.
It was still the best date. Tell this to all of my friends for me. Watch me suffer harder. I could win a medal for my suffering. Maybe it was you.
There was nothing wrong with you. But the catch is that we never had to have that conversation. If people ask me why I love your wife so much, I tell them because she was the girl you really needed, which is true, but I leave out the part about how she saved me too. Yes I know that you should never ever make your booty call banana bread. I mean, I know it now, anyway. Your worst fear is that I am going to fall in love with you, and even though you never say this explicitly, I sense it.
You are such an asshole. I may have been jealous, but I was also right. God dammit, this went on for more than a decade. I am impressed with our endurance for torturing one another. At least I can say we accomplished that.
You were so weird. There is no other word for it. I dumped you because you told me you refused to take your meds and because you picked a fight with your sister over breastfeeding. I am thrilled we did not end up together. What I am not thrilled about is that we had to stop hooking up, or whatever you call doing everything except having actual sex, because that was so good that it feels unfair that the Universe had to go and make you a freaking lunatic.
On the day you got married it poured rain and I cried all day long. I worked a double. For a little while the electric went out and we had no customers so I painted a cracked piece of bisque while it thundered and a thousand miles away the sun was shining hard on you and your bride.
I was much more in love with your house than I was ever actually interested in you, but how could you blame me? It was a three story Victorian with a wisteria-covered pergola. I know you understand because you bought the damned thing. So on the positive side, at least we had something in common in loving that house. I have never felt so lonely as the moment a military plane flew over your house and we saw it from your bedroom window and you told me your ex, no your girlfriend, you corrected yourself immediately, was trying to get a flight back from Europe.
A few minutes later she called and you were so obviously happy to hear her voice that I could feel your happy too. I knew I never had a chance. In the way the mind represses trauma, I forgot your name.
As in, the next morning I woke up in my same clothes in your bed and you were already getting ready for work and I had no idea what your name was.
Please tell me that you have finally come out of the closet. I saw on Facebook that you are now divorced. Please let this be because you finally figured out that you were actually gay and could no longer live a lie. Please let that have happened. I am a lot less bitter now than I used to be about what you did to me. Someone saw you sitting on your front step with your head between your knees on the day I left. I always wondered about this. There are days when I hope you drink too much and make yourself sick because you could never hold your liquor, and I hope find yourself drunk on your ass and filled with regret.
She used to be, but not anymore. This means that she no longer eats or poops or gets zits and her hair always looks flowy and glowy. I figured we would start with breakfast. I take it wherever I go, especially on airplanes, because the air quality in flight is just not acceptable, even in First Class.
Splurge for a private lotus pond whenever possible, because you must love yourself. You want the natural, organic pearls hand harvested by a traditional, free-diving, Japanese Ama. It is essential that you never refer to this sacred food as a Dragon Fruit because that is terribly gauche. Be aware that you will not be eating the pitaya. It is merely for your aesthetic pleasure because it is bright pink and looks very exotic, and people in middle America have no idea what it is, which means that is the new miracle cure for everything.
That is from a different life. Vanilla bean ice cream is the old you. You are now a pitaya person. Trust me, you are better off. Have your personal assistant do it the night before. A small squirt, and really treat yourself here. Preferably the villa dates back the Renaissance. Preferably your friend has won an Oscar for something, but not a Golden Globe because tacky.
Have the lemon flown to you by private jet to ensure freshness. Arise and chant several positive affirmations. Admire the lemon and the pitaya on your farmhouse table as you slip on your sweater and go outside into the fresh moonlight to breathe in your air of ease while you exhale the smoke from your American Spirit cigarette over your private lotus pond.
Dust your body with the crushed pearls and lick the soft skin of your inner forearm because you are so amazing. Dot the drop of almond milk on your tongue. Be present with it. Give thanks for the squirt of lemon juice because you are blessed and skinny and rich and beautiful. You will have plenty of energy from the rising sun. In fact, you will even be inspired to write a cookbook for mortals in which you can teach them how to make meals from poison wheat paste, fermented and aged bovine bodily fluids, and poultry ovulation.
Smile, live a nutrient dense life, strive for balance, and always eschew an American diet. That doesn't mean chew it. It's means don't eat. It came on the radio — the classic rock station, which is disturbing in and of itself, because that station should be reserved for things like Bob Seger and Led Zeppelin and the Doobie Brothers and everything else my parents listened to.
The song is ultimately about the struggle between being a freak and wanting to fit in. We all want to fit in. We want to be popular. But what we think of as popularity is a lie. The whole idea of popularity first surfaced in middle school. There was this little group of shit- assed, twelve year old bitches who wore Bonne Belle Lip Smackers and had more Lisa Franks and liquid crystals in their sticker books than anyone else.
They wore pin-striped Calvins and every year there was a new sneaker and they had to have it first. Everyone copied these girls. We all wanted to sit at their lunch table. The popular girls swooped in on me quickly.
I was an easy target being shy and unaware of my own prettiness, and they were raptors in Esprit pastels. They called me scum. That was my new name.
They relentlessly teased me. The logic probably being that if you become one of them then you are finally immune to or at least relieved from being hurt. I hated these girls. I look significantly better than all of them, which is not a surprise now that I understand the world a lot better.
Mean is just ugly. One day in ninth grade I experienced a profoundly seismic paradigm shift: So what are they then, if not genuinely popular? I still see it constantly in just about every adult I know. Everyone wants to be part of the elite.
That shit is always going to be some version of hard is a fundamental truth. Life cannot be controlled. The only thing you can do is to train your mindbodyspirit self to deal with it. I knew immediately that I wanted no part of a group of people who created an illusion of power by being mean to everyone around them including each other. The day I realized that, I stopped caring what the popular kids said to me, what they called me, and how they talked about me to others.
None of it mattered. They were a pack of pathetic assholes and they still are. Life as one of them would never be fun. I sought out friends who were interesting, who had unique passions, and friends who were kind, funny, thoughtful, flawed, sincere and different.
I have continued to do this throughout my adult life, with astonishing success. Stop striving for elitism — the fake popularity. Aspire towards genuine popularity, which is nothing more than maintaining meaningful, mutually reverent relationships with others.
People who want that have bought into the illusion. They live a big fat lie. They even have to BECOME the illusion by looking a specific way, having certain things, living, being and liking the same things as someone else. They chase and chase and never catch real happiness and their spirits become so warped that they cannot perceive beauty and truth and light anymore. First, ask yourself if you want to be elite or actually popular and think hard about the answer.
Work on that and get back to me. But if you want to be the true definition of popular in any community or gathering of people, this is how: Show up and keep showing up. It takes time to build relationships with people. You want to be a friend, not a conqueror. You are not Napoleon over here, so calm down. When you show up, be helpful. Be prepared to do a lot of work. Be generous with your time, your positive words, and your affection. Stick around when bad stuff happens.
Be one of the problem solvers instead of the blamers. Do not seek attention , and if you must receive attention, let it be from your happy achievements rather than from being a drama queen, complaining, psycho asshole who sucks all the joy and energy out of every situation. Give comfort, not judgment. This can be your new mantra. Get yourself a mala and repeat it times. Embrace your own freak. I used to try to hide it and act some way that I imagined was how normal people acted, but it was a disaster.
People are attracted to people who are authentic and real, not big phony jerks. You be real by loving what you love no matter how odd it might be to someone else or how uncool it is. Authenticity is sincerity and telling the truth about who you are. The good ones will gravitate to you when you have the courage to be real.
I have a lot of good memories from high school. I had a wonderful group of friends and we never got into the trouble that the other kids were in. I bet we were all considered huge nerds, but you know what? We were nice to each other. We had a lot of fun. We used to get together and order pizza and play music and have singalongs.
I swear, we even played board games. We watched John Hughes movies and played Mario Brothers. We went to parks and hung out and got Slurpees at My friend Michael I can use his real name because I know at least 75 Michaels checked into Chick-fil-A on Facebook last week and wrote a status declaring his undying love for their new Frosted Coffee.
There were two possibilities — either someone had hacked into his account, or he had lost his ever loving mind. For someone to actually take the time to publicly announce to the world that they are at Chick-fil-A drinking coffee? Yet my curiosity was piqued because, you see, Michael is Italian. He knows from good coffee. I respect and value his opinions on all things café noir.
Especially because we have this diner that we all love because the food and the diner ambience is fantastic but the coffee is absolute shit. Michael is so offended that he brings his own coffee to the diner so as not to have to drink the shitty diner coffee, and his dedication to high quality java has inspired me to do the same. I know I can always go to their house and get a fine cup of exquisitely brewed, mocha-dark, fine ass coffee and that they will always have half and half and raw sugar just how I need it, rather than some watery, acidic store brand garbage out of a nineteen year old Mr.
Coffee, served with a side of International Delights and a packet of Splenda. My friends are Italian, which I already mentioned. You need to have Italian friends because they will never settle for sub-standard coffee under any circumstances and they will always feed you well, and you need people like this in your life. So when Michael went so far as to post on Facebook that Chick-fil-A had a caffeinated beverage that was good enough for him to announce it on social media, I had to question him.
First rule of Victoria: If you ever compare food to sex I am immediately going to want to eat whatever it is you are describing. I began to want Frosted Coffee. But not with an intense burning desire by any means. I simply wanted more information and was thinking about Frosted Coffee in the back of my mind like, yeah, that would be cool. I tend to prefer my coffee more exclusive, as in not usually blended with my ice cream and certainly not with Chick-fil-A anywhere near the whole scene. I like my coffee unadulterated.
Just me and the coffee, intimately. Because that is a milkshake, not a cup of coffee. For many years I was in a committed relationship with iced lattes, but then we broke up it was amicable because I fell wildly in love with Starbucks Cold Brew.
Cold Brew and I are currently in a monogamous relationship because I like consistency and predictability and I know the Cold Brew is always going to deliver my caffeine fast and hard the way I like it. It was like Frosted Coffee was sending me a mildly flirty, suggestive text, complete with lower case letters and no punctuation. O rly, Frosted Coffee?
Just what exactly are you referring to? Then I went a little deeper into the Chick-fil-A site and turns out, Chick-fil-A is just as cray as you suspected.
I like coffee and all, but probably not enough to be the American mail order bride to some South American coffee farmer from a high mountain peak in the Andes. Chick-fil-A even has a hashtag for its coffee.
I kid you not. I can see it now. I have to tell you. I just want it to be good. Are we clear here? That said, I kind of got to wondering what kind of story my coffee might have. Or was it more like a my coffee dropped out of high school, traveled the world barefoot, had mystical visions on ayahuasca in the Amazon rainforest, got shot in the shoulder by a drug dealer and is now a yoga teacher kind of a story?
See, I had this plan that since I was drinking ice cream, that I was going to attempt to create balance in my Universe here by purposely not ordering whipped cream and cherry on top. Like that would make a difference, I know, but in my head it made a huge difference. Except, Chick-fil-A did not even offer that as an option.
I guess you could order it if you wanted, but somehow that feels wrong. Like if you pull some shit like that, the people at the drive-thru window might have to use their safe word or something.
