So I walked into a local Starbucks today in search of a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I'd heard it wasn't available until September 5th or 6th. But I thought I'd check anyway. I asked the barista. She glanced quickly from side to side and whispered, "Well . . . it's not officially available yet. But we have the pumpkin spice syrup. We can make you one since you asked. Just don't tell anybody."
No worries. The secret is safe with me.
