Something Perfect Happened
And by perfect I mean:
Oprah Selfies. It’s the weird new trend that Starbucks and Teavana (what is Teavana? Do you guys have one of these??) started in order to promote their new “Handcrafted Teavana Oprah Chai Tea Latte.”
First Starbucks got the entire planet to spend $4 on iced coffee without questioning why it costs more than hot coffee even though if ice is involved, there’s technically less coffee in the cup (although I once read a fascinating article on why this was and it’s because ice and plastic cups are more expensive bla bla bla); then they got us to eat cake pops, and now they have cajoled the entire Twitter-verse into posting these strange and wonderful pictures with the hashtag #oprahselfie.
It’s very weird and seems kind of random, but because Oprah’s involved, it’s perfect.
Sort of like that time she gave everyone bees.
