It's the little things in life like the brand new Dunkin' latte cup and lid that give us all the feels we need.

It was a typically busy Monday and I was running on almost empty around 3 p.m. today. I don't usually drink a coffee this late in the afternoon but I really needed me some caffeine if I was going to make it through the rest of the day. So I pulled into the drive-thru at the new NextGen Dunkin' in Fairhaven and ordered a medium hot latte with almond milk, no sugar please. "Coming right up," she said.

When I got to the window, to my surprise she handed me a medium white cup and a newly-shaped white lid which instantly reminded me of a different coffee chain's cup and lid. To say I was excited is an understatement. I was pretty close to heaven as I pulled away from the drive-thru window. I could not wait to snap back that lid and take a sip of my latte in the new Dunkin' hot latte cup and lid.

Does it make a difference, the new cup and lid? One hundred percent, yes. Those old lids they had would sometimes pop off unexpectedly and spill into my cup holders, a massive pet peeve of mine. I also feel a little fancier drinking my latte with this new cup and lid so I hope it's here to stay.

Before you roll your eyes, I know. But I told you at the beginning of this story that it is sometimes the little things in a day that can bring you from zero to a hundred in 10 seconds. And today for me, this was it. Cheers.🙃☕
