As we all know, Mr. Boo loves juice boxes, but only the apple juice boxes that come from Starbucks.  In all other situations, he refuses to drink any kind of juice at all.  Funny kid.  Yesterday was shopping day at Target.  Boo was happy to get in the Caroline Cart and be propelled around the store.  As long as he is in the cart, the noise, hustle and bustle of Saturday shoppers do not bother him.  We got our groceries and headed for the check out line.  While Robert paid for the food, Boo and I took off for the coffee shop.  As we walked over there he was making his iPad say “Starbucks”.  As we walked into the coffee shop he pushed the juice icon.  Our barista recognized us and immediately made up an apple juice box and an almond latte, served with a smile.  Boo and I sat down and began happily sipping away.  Suddenly, a young woman came up to us.  She introduced herself and said that she was a speech pathologist and she was very impressed with Boo’s skills. We thanked her.  Robert and I think that Boo is pretty spectacular, but it is always nice to have someone else think so, too!
