My Love Letter to Caramel Macchiato
You may not remember the first time we met, but I do.
Scott Pilgrim had just ordered one of you, You had no idea at the time, but that was the start of my obsession with you., so sweet and yet, so exotic, I knew then and there that we would be life-long partners, or at least, partners until I developed Diabetes Type II.
It was some time later, after many sleepless nights and restless days, that I was finally able to taste your deliciously creamy soul.
You were and continue to be the perfect blend of sugar based confectionery and coffee bean derived beverages, One sip was all it took to confirm my suspicions: You, Caramel Macchiato are the Mona Lisa of the coffee world! Enigmatic yet revealing hiding your dark espresso ichor beneath a glistening sheen of caramel and milk.
You transported me to another world, away from drowsiness, away from sleep. With you and the heady caffeine rush you always gave me I was invincible! I could do ANYTHING!
I guess what I’m trying to say, Caramel, my dear, is that I love you.
I love you more than anything I’ve ever loved before, or since, even bacon.
I love the way your curvy, golden sweetness gives way to the creamy riches of your full-bodied espresso.
I love how often you change your swirls, every time we get together you have a new look, it’s mesmerizing.
I love you Caramel Macchiato, even if my parents will never understand our love,
I will always be here for you.
