A Little Homework
In early December, we heard of a flash mob planned for that weekend. My daughter and I were already planning a daddy-daughter for that day so that was a no-brainer. We had planned to go Christmas shopping so she could find a gift from her and her brother to their mother and so she could find a gift for her brother.
It's funny because
we were talking about it recently and neither of us could remember where we had gone for lunch today. But I did remember sitting at the windows of the Westlake Starbucks watching the plaza (we always start at Starbucks) and then the flash mob itself (watch the video). So it was an interesting to see a recent homework assignment she brought home where she talked about that day with the drawing being of us at Starbucks (and her getting her customary vanilla milk) and not of us singing at Nordstroms.
Check back on this blog tomorrow for my review of "Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life without Losing Its Soul." Hint: I recommend it.
