Out of the Blue

The coffee we make at home is from Starbucks beans we get at the big-box store in 2 pound bags, and presumably to encourage recycling, Starbucks promises a free cup of coffee if you return the empty bag to the store. So in spite of not having much occasion to use them, we save them, and they have piled up to the extent that MrsBlue finally declared we were just dropping the whole pile of them off at the store to be done with it. I objected strongly on principle, as it seems silly to forego freebies, but she pointed out that a bunch of them have already expired, and I couldn't argue that this didn't demonstrate that these were going to waste anyway. But when we showed up at Starbucks, the person at the counter actually looked aghast when we offered this large bag of empties. She said if we dropped off the whole pile they would just be thrown in the garbage, and she wouldn't even take two bags in exchange for our coffees. So we got our free coffee, and walked out with exactly the same number of bags as we walked in with (and the impression that our sack of empty bags entitles us to Cosmo Kramer-style free coffees for life). The married men among you know what I mean when I say it's hard to eek out even a small win an argument like this with one's wife, but a resounding victory like this is pretty unprecedented.

Blues, the success to being married is two things, you should have been told this when you got married. Always agree with her and you are always right.
