As I mentioned on Monday, I have an exciting visitor in my house. Thor, the God of Thunder himself, is gracing me with his presence. All I can say is…wow. He’s not exactly what I expected. Sure he’s arrogant, self centered and sports the best abs I’ve ever seen. Sure he has a big…hammer. He’s all that you’d imagine, plus some.
He’s also a lush. Seriously. And it turns out, caffeine, and in particular coffee, has the same effect on him as ale, but it takes a lot less. This morning, Thor and I went for a morning stroll, just to get away from Jasper you understand (Jasper has become rather attached to Thor, to the point where he won’t stop licking him).
Thor admired the neighborhood, especially anyone in a skirt.
Then I took him to my own personal Mecca: Starbucks.
I ordered my usual, Mocha Light Frappuccino, and he insisted on a double shot espresso, muttering something about men, hairy chests, and girly drinks. Who am I to argue with a God?
He chugged that sucker like a man finding an oasis after being lost in the desert for years. I mean, he practically bathed in it. Not that I haven’t been tempted to do that myself on occasion. But still, have some pride man!
By the time we left, Thor was, dare I say, giddy. He said something about finding a trusty steed and took off so fast I lost sight of him. I have no idea where he went. If anyone sees him, give me a shout!
Hmm…a different side to Thor. A lush and a chicken (what I experienced when he was at my house overnight). If you find him, tell him to send me a double shot espresso. He owes me bigtime for saving his butt from Barbie. 🙂
hehehe I think most of this is due to our severe lack of Barbies. He may be going through withdrawals lol
Thor and espresso. Ha! I wouldn’t expect anything less from him. Of course he’d go for the strongest thing he could find. Looking forward to see what you come up with next.
Well he’s now running amuck amidst the monuments in DC :-D.
You found Thor’s secret! Yes, they have gourmet coffee at my daughter’s high school. How else do you think he was able to tolerate hanging out with seniors on their last week? LOL @ Jasper!
*giggle* it’s funny to realize Thor is a caffeine addict. He’s also well liked by the general public, I’ve noticed. He gets all kinds of stares and looks as he runs around town.
