Don't get me wrong... I'm not an idiot. I know Starbucks is the furthest thing from "authentic" ANYTHING. But... Come on y'all. How hard is it to pronounce dolce? Like really? I'm sure you've at least heard of Dolce & Gabbana. Just pretend you're saying that. Please?

And one more... About 90% of the people I've encountered from around these parts have the most irksome way of pronouncing latte. I can't blame them, per se, because most of it can be blamed on the accent. But it still makes my eye twitch a little bit after a long day.

Haha! My friend named his dog Dolce. He took him to the vet and when it was his turn they were calling, "Dulse? Dulse?" And my friend was like, "Ooooh. That's us."
