I might just be getting the hang of this Seattle thing.
Yesterday I took another exploratory walk around downtown and found a fancy-chocolate shop just a block and a half away from the office. I bought two truffles to compare them with the immaculate hometown Moonstruck Chocolate. Initially, the Neuhaus was surprisingly good.
Today, I was feeling slow and sad so I walked right into the mini-Starbucks and, with no hesitation or waffling, I ordered a Peppermint Mocha. It just felt like some kind of milestone - to be able to order something I knew I would like and would pick me up.
