The regular reader will remember that September 21 was my last visit to a Tim Horton's, and because of ongoing impatience issues on my part, I haven't been back.
I thought today might be a good time to check on their progress, because I was really thirsty for Tea. So I pulled over into Tims, and it looked hopeful given that the line up wasn't out the door and around the corner.
And, the Canadian Army was lined up for a coffee too, so I was feeling patriotic, national pride something or other.
However, and I use that nicer term in place of a BUT, it turned out to be 17 minutes from the time I got in line, till the moment I received my tea and bagel.
Now, in the grand scheme of things like how long it would take to get a tea and bagel if I had lined up in an African country, 17 minutes isn't bad.
And here is where I use the BUT word again,
But, that's 17 minutes I'll never have back again. So, I'm back to simply going without, and that's ok. Easier on the wallet too.
Today the cheerful part about going to Tims wasn't seeing the Canadian army lined up for their coffee, or the good Tea I eventually got. My line mate a few people down was Paula. It seems we regularly meet at Tims, at least every year or so.
So today I lift an extra large, double double steeped tea to Paula, the Canadian Army, and of course to the hope that Tim Hortons wait times may drop in the new year.
