2 shots and 3 pumps

I went into Starbuck's today...as I normally do. Somewhat regretting every step I take into such a corporate, typical coffee shop...but looking at the lighter things in life...like the drink I was about to consume.
Last fall, I became hooked on this one drink. You see, its kinda hard to explain...but allow me to attempt it. Its simply 2 shots of espresso on ice w/ 3 pumps of coconut. No...not peppermint. Coconut. I can't stand the peppermint flavor b/c it makes me think I've drank something right after I have brushed my teeth. So, this drink...you then add water. No more than 3 quarters full...b/c anymore it will ruin the half/half and one equal you add in the end.
Well...tonite at the Starbuck's in lovely downtown Franklin...I ordered this drink, in addition to asking for a job...but that's for a later entry. She handed me my drink...but she had filled the cup with water to the top. Yea...no room for the last ingredients. Being the polite...somewhat push over individual as I am, I took the drink w/o hesitation. I began to walk over to the little "add-in station"...and I took a sip assuming I would toss a portion of it out. I stopped immediately in my path to the..."add-in station"...and was amazed at the fact that I was enjoying just 2 shots and 3 pumps. You need to understand...at this point (though I'm sure many people order this drink), I became an individual. I no longer needed to really base my drink decision on a previous experience or relationship...yes, relationship. 2 shots and 3 pumps...and water...is enough.
