Conversation with my first-grader in Starbucks today…
Little Bit: What’s the next size after “tall?”
LB: (holds arms wide apart) Is a grande this big?
TR: A tall cup holds 12 ounces, a grande holds 16 ounces.
LB: 4 ounces isn’t a very big difference.
TR: (shrugs) Well, it’s half a cup.
LB: (thinks for a moment) No, Mom, it isn’t a half. 4 ounces is ONE THIRD of a 12 ounce cup.
TR: You’re right about that.
Like any proper Seattle child, she’s proficient in coffee math.
