Welcome to another week of Saturday Upsides! Don’t forget to check out this page for Saturday upsides from previous weeks. Please join me this and every weekend to share a positive story from your life!
I learned something this week.
Dark coffee (as in strong coffee) is not the same as dark roasted coffee.
Did you know that?
It’s a good story. I had some great coffee coupons and trying to be an awesome wife, I brought my husband home a few bags. I thought that “dark Italian roast” sounded like just his thing! Upon my arrival at home, I learned that dark roasted coffee is more bitter, and that you can still make strong coffee with a light roast. No big deal, I thought, and today I went back to the store to exchange the coffee.
I took care of the whole exchange, feeling pretty proud of myself for getting it right the second time. I even toted that coffee along with me to my eye appointment, since both were at Walmart.
Home again I went. Someone apparently put at least one bag of coffee on the wrong shelf, because somehow one of my bags sneakingly says “decaf,” even though it looks just like the other bag!
I decided I didn’t want to exchange any more, and my husband said we could keep that around in case any guests liked decaf. Or, he said, if I ever wanted to drink coffee… because he thinks I’m hyper enough without caffeine. 😉
So what is the upside of all this?
#1. I am thankful for returns, and that I at least was able to attempt to get the right coffee! (And did succeed for part of it.)
#2. I am glad that my husband is patient. 🙂
