Starbucks New Iced Coffee Was Basically Made For Mondays

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Unfortunately, we recently lost an hour with daylight time saving. This means that all kinds of weird things can happen to our brains, and to our bodies. This can affect our workweek, and also means that we must load up on even more coffee in order to get through the day like a champ.


That’s why Starbucks Grande Iced Blonde Quad Caffe Americano was invented. It is known to be the savior to fatigue and to the daily time savings.  With all due respect to the daily time savings, time can seriously affect the brain, and we really do need this super powered coffee in our lives.


According to a Starbucks barista, the Blonde brew has more caffeine than any coffee ever before, and even has a more subtle taste. The drink is reported to contain an entire 255mg per Grande order. For a reference point, a regular iced coffee of this size has approximately 165 mg of caffeine.  No need to hate Mondays anymore!
